Worrying makes no sense…
So in my last post I talked about why I live a worry free life… This post will focus more on the negative effects of worry and indeed why worrying makes no sense.
Matt 6:25-34 clearly states “DO NOT WORRY” – God must have a reason why He said this. I will have to put this scripture up so that you can see what I see. It says:
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
For me, these are the 3 top negative effects of worrying (feel free to comment below and let me know what you see as the effects of worrying):
1) It affects your health (so many researches have proven this time and time again)
2) It changes nothing (I’m sure you can testify to this)
3) It saps your energy, and you lose the strength, will, and motivation to do anything
Let’s read verse 27 of that scripture again…”Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”…it’s emphasizing that we really can’t add any benefits to our lives by worrying or stressing about anything at all! Has anything ever changed by your worries? And do you notice that whether you worry or not, what will be will be?…for those who love God, things ALWAYS work out well in the end…So what am I saying? Stop worrying, fretting, or being anxious about your life, things or indeed anyone’s life…instead begin to enjoy everyday and live life to the fullest every chance you get! After all you’re not sure how long or short your life here will be…so give it your best shot and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
