I’m not a chronic worrier, but from time to time I can sink down into that dark hole of anxious rumination, usually between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. By morning, those fretful thoughts don’t seem like such a big deal. By mid-afternoon, however, I feel the full effect of wasting two hours of prime slumber.
You can imagine my joy and relief when I stumbled upon the solution to worry! It was right there, at the entrance to the grocery store — a simple three step process to wipe away worry for good.
Pull that anxious thought from your mind.
Wipe it away with the antiseptic power of God’s Word.
Throw. And don’t go back to dig it out of the garbage.
“Throw all your anxiety onto Him because He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7
His peace of mind is our peace of mind.
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you.”
Inhale peace — exhale worry.
Repeat as needed.
