Do you worry? Jesus tells us not to. Here’s how others heeded his advice:
"Worry is like a rocking chair... it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere." Dorothy Galyean "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength." Corrie Ten Boom"You'll break the worry habit the day you decide you can meet and master the worst that can happen to you." Arnold Glasgow"When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened." Winston Churchill "It ain't no use putting up your umbrella till it rains" Alice Caldwell Rice"People get so in the habit of worry that if you save them from drowning and put them on a bank to dry in the sun with hot chocolate and muffins, they wonder whether they are catching cold" John Jay Chapman"Don't be afraid of tomorrow, for God has already been there."

Dear God,I have done all I know to heal this problem and I have tried every resource within my knowledge and power. I now turn this worry over to your care. I acknowledge my own inability to stop worrying. I know, however, that it is not beyond your power to help me. Nothing is impossible with You. So I ask that you help me trust You.Bring light into this darkness and restore peace to my mind and heart. I am grateful that you already know the way, even if I do not. I now let go in trust and faith, knowing that it is only through believing in Your Son, Jesus Christ, that I may have rest. Through Your perfect love and grace, restore me to wholeness. In the Name of Jesus. Amen. (www.walkoutofworry.com)
