Are you putting down your worry beads before your worry-lines manifest?

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25.

this worry

Worry, merimnao; Strong’s #3309. This verb comes from merizo, “to divide into parts.” This is what our soul loves to lend itself to when it is left to its inherent nature because of a lack of intake of the Word of God.

Distraction begins and fastens onto preoccupation with thoughts causing anxiety, stress, and pressure. Jesus speaks against worry and its child anxiety because of the watchful care of a heavenly Father who is ever mindful of our daily needs.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34.


But I want you to be without care (worry). He who is unmarried cares (is concerned) for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord… And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction. 1 Corinthians 7:32-35.

For I have no one like-minded, who will sincerely care (be concerned) for your state. Philippians 2:20.

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.1 Peter 5:6,7.

    These two verses have had great power in my life. At times I have been the worry wart, and these verses have come to my rescue. I share these verses with people quite a bit. Just quoted them today in fact.

    Thanks for another nugget, Manny.
