How do I overcome worry?

How to overcome worry?

I remember it, like it was yesterday! My husband and I had just split up, and I was left with six kids to tend to by myself. I had no job, and no income whatsoever. However, I had my God!

That day my heart was very heavy and filled with so much worry. I made a decision to take those cares to God.

The only way we are going to overcome worry and fear is to place every care at the feet of Jesus. Worrying is never going to change the outcome of any situation but I promise you, God can change it!

That day as I cried out to God for help, I was given a job as a lifeguard at our apartment’s pool. Not only did the employer pay me, I was also given free rent as long as I worked there! (Hallelujah God always comes through!)

I seen God step in when I decided to cast every care over to Him. Instead of worries, God gave me His peace in a tough situation.

The Bible is so clear on what we are to do about all our worries as it reads here in these verses…

Philippians 4:6-7
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7
casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Today, take every care and cast it at the feet of Jesus and pick up His peace instead!
