Worry, Worry, Worry, Worry, Worry, Worry

June 21, 2017

It’s human nature to worry and we worry because we care. Ironically however, when Dr. Karl Pillemer, a professor of human development at Cornell University asked hundreds of senior citizens what they regret most when they looked back upon their life, the majority of these seniors answered: “I wish I hadn’t spent so much of my life worrying.”

 

Here are six of the most prevalent concerns of the elderly:
1. Money Issues...No one wishes to out-live their savings.

2. Feeling Useless...No longer having purpose

3. Loneliness...relationships begin to shrink

4. Moving from One’s Home...No place like home

5. Being a Burden...Don’t want to be a burden on another

person

6. Being Abused and Neglected...Don’t want to die alone-

Nobody cares!

 

And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
Matthew 6:30

 

The word worry comes from an old English word meaning “to choke or strangle”. Even in another definition it means to divide the mind. That’s exactly what worry does to your productivity, peace and happiness. It is a self-defeating waste of time.

 

In His famous Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:25-34), Jesus gave four reasons for not worrying and the answer to over-come it.

  1. Worry is unhelpful. It can’t change anything. It can’t

    change your future. It makes you miserable.

  2. Worry is unnecessary. Father God has promised to take

    care of you if you will trust Him. You need to trust Him

    with every detail of your life. (Ex. little child)

  3. Worry is really unnatural. You were not born into this life

    a worrier. This is a learned reaction and not a response.

    Only humans worry.

  4. Worry is unreasonable. To think and worry about

    something you can’t change is useless and worthless.

Worry sometimes makes things grow and amplifies concerns out of proportion. Don’t let worry be a habit!
