Worry:  20 observations
__________________________________

  1. Worry ignores that it wasn’t invited
  2. It sneaks in
  3. Then begins to follow you – everywhere.
  4. It invades your quiet moments –
    even your time alone with God.
  5. It refuses to leave
  6. It doubts everything you know.
  7. It wonders at God – questions His goodness
  8. It cripples your faith
  9. Discredits your dreams
  10. Worry tells you there’s no way
  11. Disqualifies you from your own future.
  12. It imagines the worst
  13. Then makes it real.
  14. Worry changes the odds on you
  15. And stifles your dreams.
  16. It debilitates. Keeps you out of the game.
  17. It spray-paints “Why bother” across your front door
  18. Siphons the gas out of tomorrow’s tank
  19. Worry ruins you.
  20. And then it laughs at how weak it’s made you,
    and how little your God is right now.

Psalm 42:5  (NIV)

5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
