On The Bright Side – Mary Howell

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 6:27 am


We all go through circumstances that cause us to worry.  Every day of our lives brings happenings which either bring joy or distress to us.


I recently heard a message by my pastor Jerry Masters, who encouraged us to try to stop worrying so much.  He told the audience that worry was the opposite of having faith.  When we worry, it shows that we have a bit of distress. God our Heavenly Father, knows everything that is going to happen to us from the day we are born until the day we die.  We need to have faith and trust His will for us.  The Bible says “Fret not and fear not”.  When we spend our time worrying about the future, we not only have emotional distress, we also can do damage to our heath.  Some symptoms which could be caused from worry are difficulty swallowing, dizziness, fast heart rate, fatigue, headaches, irritability, and nausea. 


Worrying is feeling uneasy or being overly concerned about a situation or problem  With excessive worrying, your mind and body go into overdrive as  you  constantly focus on ”what might happen”.


Some people who worry excessively are like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.


Worry passes the time but doesn’t get us anywhere.  We need to put more trust in God to give us a life on the bright side.
