Worry vs Faith
“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?.”Mathew 6:25
Everyone in the world has worried at least five times in their lives. Worry is something everyone goes through. It is something that makes people tick, loose focus, yell and even enter into a violence stage. It steals peace of mind.. Anxiety is the same thing than worry; except it contains fear and is the extreme of what people call worry or being preoccupied. Few people see “anxiety” this way until it’s exposed. One walks in life watching psychiatrists and doctors give prescribed medication for this matter; labeling the individual with a psychology disorder or as simple as a diagnosis. This is completely unethical and a control of mind. Worry, known as anxiety; is showing doubt and where there is doubt, there is lack of faith.
Faith is placing your trust in the Lord. Those who worry, lack faith. For without faith, it is impossible to trust God. Some people worry due to the fact that they are usually in control of most situations. Most people who consider themselves “fixers” are the ones who worry because “this time” they have no control over the issue. However, leaving the problem in the Lord’s hands is trusting that everything will turn out fine. If you think “But I have little faith.” The only question you shall ask yourself now is; Where is my trust coming from? Do I truly trust him or do I just want to make myself believe I do? Where am I truly placing my trust? In mankind or in the Lord?
Ask yourself how much time, energy and peace of mind you are wasting during this action as well as anxiety. Is it helping you or making things worse?
