The Worry ~ Fear Spin


So, there’s a whole lot of world spinning around you and a whole lot of noise and the good ole’ days have jollied along South and left you to fend for yourself in that heap of spinning debris whirling in your mind. Yeah, the good ole’ days ~ the days when life just seemed a whole lot simpler and much more enjoyable. It was smooth sailing then wasn’t it and life was carefree? Today it seems that fears lurk in the corners and nip at your heels. The kids grow up and want their space! They show their colors as personalities take shape. They demand, they want, they fuss and tantrum and parenting is hard! The money wanes! Pressures mount! The work-a-day world is a joke and worry is gut – wrenching and real and cruel and taunts and teases and distracts and if we give it a place it destroys us from the inside out. It sideswipes! Runs us off- track and if we’re not careful, ~ “Out of the race.”

There’s a bunch of us that know it and know it well and know it’s grip and know how it grabs us and snatches us into it’s vices, tossing us about in the wind, yet it’s relentless to free us and let us go.


Oh yeah, have you been there, or are you right now, right there? Right smack dab in the middle of the worry spin? Beautiful you, when it’s caught you in it’s grip, look to the LORD for help and say with confidence the song of the Psalmist in Psalm 121: 1-2:

“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Psalm 56:3
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

Worry and trust do not live together in the same mind or the same heart, so beautiful soul, it’s one or the other. Why not snatch the trust, Grab it! hang on to it! Stand firm on it and believe God’s promises are true. Refuse the enemy’s take charge ability to break through your defense line ~ your beautiful mind! Your beautiful soul.
God’s got this! Let Him have all of it!

There’s much to ponder and so much on our plates to wonder about, but still let’s embrace the sweet moment and moments that we have, while we have them.

They won’t come again but they can bless us while they’re here if we only take the time to be grateful even for the hard stuff.

So that mind of yours ~ Is it weary with worry and weakened by fear with concerns over things you have no control over? And is it like, “Who cares anyway”? Alone and aching and so much at stake? “Why this”? “Why now”? “What now”? “What’s the next turn or twist”? Well beautiful soul ~ the enemy preys on weakened thinking and fear and worry but oh, he runs from a thankful heart and a heart full of praise. Yeah, thankful hearts, even for the hard stuff. Our greatest blessings hide out in the difficult places and a grateful heart brings them to the surface all wrapped up in a grace so amazing and a love so sweet and so unconditional. All Gracious gifts from the Father of Light, our Sovereign God who rules over the big world and over yours! Take your cares to Jesus ‘cuz the world is His and your world is His. His to order and heal and restore and make new. His to take to the Father and intercede for on your behalf. Oh yeah, we are blessed and you are blessed if you know Him and have a personal relationship with the Christ who gave up His own life in His own divine world unto death and yet, defied it, to redeem a lost and dying earth world. On His team, abundant life is our gift for living here ~ so toss the worry aside and release the fear and the concern for it all. It’s in God’s hands anyway and you can know He won’t let you down ~ not even for one beautiful second of your beautiful day in your beautiful life. Trust Him!

“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”
Psalm 55: 2

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.…”

Time Out

So when the voice of confusion does its rant against your mind and steals your peace, and leaves you feeling on the brink of nothing but chaos and failure, you need to call a “time out” while you wait on the Lord for His divine direction. His voice won’t compete with the noise of your chaotic surroundings or the noise levels of your panic, fear or worry. He wants your trust! Your complete and honest trust for your problem. Yeah, He works in that calmness of total surrender when noisy confusion dissipates and melts into tranquil moments with Him and His sovereignty. He’s all-knowing and all-powerful. All authority is His and lies in His capable hands. He saves, He keeps, He sustains. He heals, He cleanses and He forgives. Who more could mentor you through the tough decisions and choices that lie ahead? He’s promised to guide and lead the way for His children. Psalm 32:8-9 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.” So ~ beautiful soul, don’t hide behind confusion and stubborn will. Do not let one more thing weight you down! Not one thing! Go to your maker! Get with Him for counsel and help in your time of need. You’ll find unconditional love there! You’ll find Him a God of mercy, grace and compassion. He waits to hear from you. He waits to quiet the noise of your confusion, and heal your wounds and mend your brokenness. He waits to open new doors of opportunity and the grace to rise to the challenge. Trust Him!

In A Stew?

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So you’ve worried yourself into a stew and now look at you at the end of the day. What can you do? You’re exhausted and turned upside down, inside out and wrong side in. Has it helped? Face it beautiful soul, nothing was accomplished by your fretting because nothing ever is. Jesus Himself, told us so in His own words in Matthew 6:27, when He asked His listeners a pointed question ~ “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” So the words from our Savior and Lord ring in our ears and we still don’t get it because we just can’t turn that issue over and relinquish control. Somehow we so falsely believe that worry is power over our problem and so we keep the stew a bubblin’ and the energy levels drop dead at our feet as we drag our worries to every corner of the planet. Our enemy is out to bring us to defeat and wherever we go, we’ll find that crazy worry just beats us there to beat us up, to laugh in our faces and defy our trust in the God we say we believe in and the God who cares so deeply for us.

Oh these moments are moments for your beautiful soul to take a stand against the enemy and inhale God’s grace and let the depth and the height of His sovereign power sink into your heart and mind. These are the moments to reach out to the Lord of our lives, our Salvation Giver, our Provider and our Sustainer through all things. These are the moments to just fall into simple child – like trust and trust Him! Cast your burden on the God who has your back. Nothing will touch you that He hasn’t ordered and if He orders it and brings you to it, You can know, that you know, that you know, that He will bring you through it!

1 Peter 5: 6 7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.…

Don’t let him get to you through worry!
