Anxiety

  |  0 Comments

Anxiety is one of our modern plagues. Its effects are visible everywhere, interfering with our happiness and our ability to live productively. Anxiety limits our connections with other people, saps our energy, reduces our focus and our skillfulness and undermines our health. (Psychology Today,. ‘Anxiety: A Modern Plague’. N.p., 2015.

You cannot add a single

You cannot add a single hour to your life by worrying (v.27). As Corrie ten Boom put it: ‘Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow; but it empties today of strength.’

Live in day-tight compartments. Live one day at a time. Don’t borrow trouble from tomorrow: ‘each day has enough trouble of its own’ (v.34b). Make a decision today not to worry about tomorrow. Trust God to provide for you one day at a time.

Nicky Gumbel - UK Vicar, Alpha Course (1955- )

When Sarah was battling her

When Sarah was battling her cancer she went for a walk along Heacham beach and was worrying about lots of aspects of the illness. She felt God say write everything you are worrying about on pebbles and throw them in the sea. Any that you can find again you can worry about.

A doctor examined his patient

  |  0 Comments

A doctor examined his patient and concluded that nothing physical was wrong with him. He said, “You probably have some business or social problem that you should talk over with a good counselor. I dealt with a case very similar to yours only a few weeks ago. This patient of mine had a $5,000 debt that he could not pay. Because of his financial problem he had worried himself into a state of nervous exhaustion.”

“And did you cure him?” asked the patient.

“Yes,” said the doctor. “I told him just to stop worrying, that life is too short to make himself sick over a silly little scrap of paper. Now he’s back to normal; he stopped worrying.”

“I know,” said the patient, “I’m the one he owes the $5,000 to, and that’s what I’m worried about.”
