POINT TO PONDER: WORRY
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?
Luke 12: 25-26
We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.
If a care is too small to be turned into a prayer, it is too small to be made a burden.
>Corrie ten Boom
Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.
Worry and trust cannot live in the same house. When worry is allowed to come in one door, trust walks out the other door; and worry stays until trust is invited in again, whereupon worry walks out.
>Robert G. LeTourneau
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength
>Charles H. Spurgeon
It ain’t no use putting up your umbrella till it rains
>Alice Caldwell Rice
Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and his will for us.
Don’t tell me that worry doesn’t do any good. I know better. Things I worry about don’t happen.
Borrow trouble for yourself, if that’s your nature, but don’t lend it to your neighbors.
You have a disagreeable duty to do at twelve o’clock. Do not blacken nine and ten and eleven and all between, with the color of twelve. Do the work of each and reap your reward in peace. So when the dreaded moment in the future becomes the present, you shall meet it walking in the light, and that light will overcome darkness.
