Stop Worrying!!

https://www.webmd.com/balance/guide/how-worrying-affects-your-body#1

Are you a worrier?  Do you fret about what could be coming?  Do you lose sleep worrying about problems?  

If, so you could be developing a health problem – stress!!!

The article today says stress can cause:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Irritability
  • Muscle aches
  • Muscle tension
  • Nausea
  • Nervous energy
  • Rapid breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Trembling and twitching

I’m generally not a fan of the above list (other than maybe fast heartbeat and sweat when working out or doing yard work).  

I’m a fan of the concept that the past is past – gone; the future is unknown; all we have is the present!!!

Let’s go to the Bible for some verses about worrying.  Matthew 6:25 ““That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”

Matthew 6:31 ““So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’

And … Matthew 6:34 ““So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Careful planning is so much better than worrying.  If you are worried about having enough money in retirement, you should be planning today with savings, 401K plans, investing in stocks and other areas.  

“Don’t worry, be happy”.
