How much time do you waste on worry?

I think if we took a poll of most of the people in the world about how much time they spend on worrying each day, we would be enormously surprised.  Too many people worry all the time, however, it has been said that we have to stop worrying and turn our problems over to our Creator if we want to heal our lives.  .  I know it would serve us all more, if we decided to come back to a place of peace within!  You need to protect your mind, body and spirit by placing all of your trust and faith believingthat your God is smart, strong and almighty, and therefore, He can lift your load as you relinquish all your stress and worry to Him.  That is, in itself a wonderful action step that will lead you to empower yourself.

 Every time you are tempted to worry, try to turn your thinking around and make a conscious effort of changing your thoughts so you can release all your stress and tension.

 How much time do you waste on worry? Be honest with yourself! Don’t start worrying about the ‘what if’s’ in your life and start placing your focus on the present moment that is a gift to you.  You have the grace to get through today.  We are not supposed to place our focus on the future…that will take care of itself.  We never know what the future will bring but you can absolutely handle and take care of what is right in front of you.

 You have to guard your mind! Don’t you think it is time for you to empower yourself? Good thoughts don’t automatically come into our minds, we actually need to plant them there. Our negative thoughts are easy to believe in and worry about.  If you live worried, discouraged and doubtful, you will become a victim to fear and negativity.  But if you choose to trust God more and put all your faith in Him, you will be better prepared to turn all your worry into his capable hands.  Self-empowerment requires courage, strength and discipline.

Maybe it is time for you to come back to a place of peace.  Take the problem off the pedestal that you honor each day and begin to put God up on the pedestal; at his feet place your basket of worry and doubt and allow Him to find the answers to all your problems and concerns.  Let God fight your battles; turn everything over to Him and watch Him take over and create the change you are hoping to realize.  As long as you make peace with your mind and heart and turn all your struggles and problems to your God, you will be better prepared to live the life you crave. 

 Living a stressful and worrisome life will only move you closer to a life of pain, suffering and deterioration.  Stress can kill!  Worry will weaken and destroy!  Sickness and disease are the end results of those conditions and negative thoughts.  You can heal your life when you are conscious of where you are placing your focus.  Stay in peace and don’t let worry rob you or your quality of life.  If you want to heal your life, you must put a stop to worry once and for all.  It is time for you to move into a place of inner peace because it is only in that state that you will be in a position to manifest all that you need to heal your life.
