Worry's Cure

Worrying about our lives shows a lack of trust. If we can truly learn to believe that God's working everything for our good, we won't worry about anything!

Worry’s Cure

The epidemic causing panic
Spreads faster than the worst of plagues;
A fear can cause my faith to vanish,
When chance of harm is ever so vague—

But He who’s taking care of sparrows,
Is holding me with care as well,
And every time that I have stumbled
His hands caught me before I fell—

So I will hold my Father’s hand,
For trust is worry’s greatest cure;
The winds can blow around my heart,
But here in Christ I am secure!

I really like this one. It's very true. I especially like the last two lines:

The winds can blow around my heart,
But here in Christ I am secure!


A lot of the big worries in life, like finding a mate and choosing a career, we worry about so much because our heart is in conflict with our desire to follow Christ's will. It's a constant struggle, and it's hard to submit to God and trust Him completely, but when I sit back and see what He's already done with my life . . . wow. I can't afford to live even a day of my life without trusting Him completely--with the little things and with the big things.
