I love the wisdom of our elders. I was going through a tough timer when one of the elderly ladies in our church stated, “There’s no need to sow worries.” She said it in her thick southern drawl and the words stuck with me because of the simplicity of her wisdom.
When we worry, we are sowing weeds in our brains. Those weeds choke out any healthy thoughts if we let them grow. They wrap around our success focus and take the nutrients from our efforts that could be going into productive efforts.Worrying is the anti-productivity! Click To Tweet
We worry about the things that have not happened and we miss out on the things that are happening all around us. When we worry, just think about all the things that are going well. Take time to literally count your blessings. There isn’t enough time to sow worries and still enjoy life.
Worries are like butterflies, they need to be released.
Philippians 4:6-7 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
If you are worrying, stop thinking about the worries and think about what you can do to accomplish great things for God. Your brain cannot hold on to two thoughts at once, so focus on God, give Him praise and count your blessings. It is the best worry weed control I can offer.
Be blessed and be a blessing!
