Generally when you have free time to think, what kind of thoughts do you have?
You know, like during that long wait for the bus?
And when you’re in the car stuck in terrible traffic?
Or during that long commute to work?
I’m going to tell you what most of you would answer… Worries!
It’s the bills to pay, something that someone said that offended you, something that your husband did, an uncertain future, the unpaid rent, so many things to do and such little time and the list goes on...
That brings you an enormous weight on your shoulders and when you realize it, you’re already in a bad mood and don’t even have the will to smile or speak to anyone.
All of you worries seem to devour you!
If you don’t identify this problem in your life and fight against it, it will bring forth bigger and worst consequences.
Have you noticed the great amount of people being diagnosed with depressions these past few years?
Not to mention (although now mentioning) that these worries make you feel like an old person with a bitter face.
Now I ask: Do all of those worries and stress solve your problems?
Ahhh if it at least solved the problem! We would all be doing very well!
But I’m going to tell you… it doesn’t solve anything!
Look at what the Bible teaches us…
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
Task #4 for Becoming a Lovelier Woman
“During this Dare, whenever worries come to take away your peace, you are going to pray and place it in God’s hands. If the problem is something that can be solved, ask Him to help you find a solution.”
Please take notice, I’m not saying that you should ignore the problem; instead, you should think of finding a solution and not sink in a sea of negative feelings.
Talking about it with someone and unburdening yourself does you great good and afterwards you will feel like a huge weight came off your shoulders.
I suggest you look for a Universal Church closest to you and talk to a pastor who aside from listening to you will also offer you precious advice…
