On Worry

 It's something that I struggle with a lot. Like, a lot a lot. If it can be worried about, I'm worrying. I worry about tests, I worry when my family members are driving long distances, I worry about first days and presentations and big life events. It's a near constant in my life, something I struggle with almost daily. It makes my stomach upset and I can't concentrate on anything.
I'm sure many of you also struggle occasionally with worry. I think it comes when we forget to leave things in God's hands and try to wrangle everything on our own, even though we can't. We weren't meant to. It can be a difficult thing to overcome, but its not impossible. Some verses I remember when I'm feeling stressed and worried:
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Luke 12:26

Do not worry about anything. Instead in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Phillipians 4:6-7
Worry is so difficult to overcome, especially for me, but with God it is possible. As hard as it is, we need to remember to surrender our worries to him.


  1. Good reminder, thanks girl :) I tend to worry a lot too, especially when it comes to my family.

  2. I love this!! I am such a worrier too. But I've found that if I just really trust that God has it, I always feel better. Music really helps too <3



Thanks for commenting! It truly makes my day.
