Worry... November 19 2019, 0 Comments

So our home is a house full of worriers.
I mean - three out of four of us double check
the stove to make sure it's turned off.
Double check the doors at night.
Click the car alarm a few times to make sure it's locked - 
crazy stuff like that.  It's quirky, maybe a little neurotic but 
it is what it is.
I woke up in the middle of the night last night with the weight
of worry all over me.  I hate that feeling.
My mind started to go to all the things that I can't control
right now - I think that is where the worry comes on.
Then I remembered a saying someone told me a long time
ago when I used to be worried to fly...they said just repeat
"I trust you Jesus" over and over and over again.
I swear it works.
I fell right back asleep last night.
So much of worry for me is the fear behind not being able to control
things that are going on in my life right now.  
Once I can let it go - whether thru prayer, meditation, healthy distraction - I feel 
so much lighter - happier and able to focus on the things I can control.
Feels better.
