ONE SUBTLE WAY TO LOSE YOUR MIND…

I have discovered that one subtle but most destructive way to lose your mind is by Worry! “There is scarcely any sin against which our Lord Jesus more warns his disciples, than disquieting, distracting, distrustful cares about the things of this life. This often insnares the poor as much as the love of wealth does the rich. But there is a carefulness about temporal things which is a duty, though we must not carry these lawful cares too far. He urged the disciples saying, “Therefore I tell you, stop being worried or anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted) about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, as to what you will wear. Is life not more than food, and the body more than clothing? (Matthew 6:25).

The cares of this life is potent to destroy our peace and diminish our health. Therefore, the secret to stay sane is to acknowledge and expect that God will provide food and raiment, and that he holds your tomorrow. Matthew Henry puts it this way, “Take no thought for your life. Not about the length of it; but refer it to God to lengthen or shorten it as he pleases; our times are in his hand, and they are in a good hand. Not about the comforts of this life; but leave it to God to make it bitter or sweet as he pleases.  Take no thought for the morrow, for the time to come. Be not anxious for the future, how you shall live next year, or when you are old, or what you shall leave behind you. As we must not boast of tomorrow, so we must not care for to-morrow, or the events of it.”

Come to think of it, has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? Of course not! You cannot by worry add a cubit to your height, but you can by worry lose you health and mind. ‘The day you stop worrying will be the first day of your new life; anxiety takes you in circles.. ‘Leon Brown” Worrying does not take away tomorrow, it takes away today’s peace. Therefore, Look at the birds, free and unfettered, and not tied down to a job description, yet God takes good care of them. And you count far more to God than birds, so If it worries you, it means it’s beyond you. So leave it in God’s sufficient hand. Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing (Isaiah 26:3). Be careless in the care of God; you’re winning! Welcome to March. Even if it seems that you are out of the line, don’t lose your mind, Move forward. Yes, we are winning!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking the time and actual
    effort to produce a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and
    never manage to get nearly anything done.
