Handling Worry in Your Life

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 17, 2014

Everyone deals with worry, of some kind, at one time or another in their lives. When you’re considering making an adoption plan, you might find yourself worrying about the future. Here’s a good quote to keep in mind about worry: "Worry won't help tomorrow, but it can make today worse." Luke 12:25 reads: "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"

Here's a kind reminder about worry from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young: "You are on a path of My choosing. There is no randomness about your life...Most people let their moments slip through their fingers, half-lived. They avoid the present by worrying about the future or longing for a better time and place. They forget that they are creatures who are subject to the limitations of time and space...As you give yourself more and more to a life of constant communion with Me, you will find that you simply have no time for worry. Thus, you are freed to let My Spirit direct your steps, enabling you to walk along the path of Peace."
