Why worry? I have come to a conclusion that worry does no good but rather rubs us of the next step that would have likely bailed us out of whatever predicament we are facing.
Most of the time, people easily succumb to worrying over issues while a solution is just a step away. When next you come across an obstacle whilst chasing your dream, rather than stop to worry, simply put in same effort into taking a bold step forward and you would be amazed with the magical effects this bold action would produce.
Aside the fact that worry doesn’t solve anything, too much of it also causes physical strain on the body, which of cause makes one look older than their mark. Your worries could only get worse when you have to contend with whatever you are worrying about, alongside having to worry about your strained physical appearance. Most especially, in our generation of today where the 50 year olds want to look like the 30 year olds, I bet you sure would not want to look older than what you really are as a consequence of worrying, of which does not help your situation.
For us Christians, we can see a confirmation from the bible that worrying cannot help us, as stated in Matthew 6: 25-34 “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?. 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?. Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 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? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.".
Therefore, it is my prayer that you heed to this advice, so that when next you are faced with that situation, ‘Do Not Worry’, simply strut your neck out and keep moving and in this, you would surely conquer your limitations or obstacles.
I hope you have been blessed by this.
