This weekend I had several moments where I was worrying or thinking too much about the next blood test (which is today). I woke up to this devotion on my phone:
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (NLT) -2 Timothy 1:7
Do you have a lot of worries over circumstances you cannot control? Dear friend, one ounce of worry doesn’t do an ounce of good. Letting worry creep in means you are giving control of the situation over to a spirit of fear. If you find yourself worrying about something, stop and occupy your mind in a way that solves the problem. Better yet, get your hands busy and put on a spirit of love by serving others.”
This is all I needed to hear to get through the day. I have a calming peace that has been put over me this morning, no matter the outcome. I know worry will creep back up at some point in time and I’ll be ready to take it on when it does.
