Episode 48 – Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing
Worry seems to be part of the human condition. We worry about relationships, work, money, the future, health and more. And yet most of what we worry about never happens! When we need to make something happen, persevere, overcome, heal or create, worry blocks us. In this episode we talk about how we release worry (and striving) and what we can be assured of, no matter what.
Worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems
Some of the things we worry about: Relationships, Work, Finances, Uncertain future, Lack of confidence Health, Aging, , State of our nation, State of our world War, Poverty, Violence, Environment
We spend 6.5 years of our lives spent worrying
85% of what we worry about never happens
Jesus had these things to say about it:
“Do not worry!”
“Come to me all who are burdened. I will give you rest.”
“If you had faith the size of a mustard seed…you could say to this mountain…”
Knowing – despite feelings or appearances – that everything is working out for Good
The assurance of an outcome without having to know how it’s going to happen
Letting go and letting God – ceasing to strive
With Faith you can
Persevere through the seemingly
Overcome fears and challenges
Heal our bodies, minds
Boldly create the life of our dreams
What do you worry about? How does worry show up in your life? How would your life be if you freed yourself of worry?
How have you used the power of Faith to persevere, overcome, heal or create?
What are you assured of really?
When there is uncertainty before me, I release worry. I have faith that the Light of Spirit is at work. There is nothing to fear for I know that all is working together for Good. When there is something that I want to accomplish – dreams, overcoming, healing – I pray for guidance and direction. I listen. I begin by taking one step forward, then another. The power of Faith assures me and fills me with confidence and a lightness of Being.
