I've been struggling with worry the last few days. There is an issue I just haven't been able to let go of.
Funny thing about worry...it makes you lose your mind. No solutions. Just a fire hydrant spray of problems.
Here's what I've just been challenged with:
"He will keep in perfect peace
He whose mind is steadfast
Because his trust is in you." Isaiah 26:3
I long for perfect peace.
But forget to keep my mind steadfast...
Where is my trust?
I have to be proactive...in this battle of the mind.
And set it somewhere sure. Trustworthy. Right.
Then I'll always know where to find it.
"Since then you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3: 1-2
Help me, Father to set my mind (and heart) with You. Every morning. Every night. And all those hours in between. I've practiced another way. And need to change that habit. Forgive me for not obeying your command to not worry and to cast my cares on You. Thank you for being willing and so very Able to carry all that rattles unnecessarily in my brain. Thank you for showing me a better way.
I need you Lord. Every day. All the time.
In Jesus I pray...
