Why Worry ?

A farmer was driving along the road with a load of natural fertilizer. A little boy, playing in front of his house, saw him and called, "What've you got in your truck?"

" Natural Fertilizer," the farmer replied.

"What are you going to do with it?" asked the little boy.

"Put it on strawberries," answered the farmer.

"You ought to live here," the little boy advised him. "We put sugar and cream on ours."
                      Worry Is Worthless

 Worry is a complete waste of time and energy.  Pity parties result in a tremendous drain on your body. It may take weeks to fully recover from a party. I’m speaking from experience.
Which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life’s span?Matthew 6:27

I believe He was saying, “You go to bed tonight and fret and fuss because you’re not five feet, eleven inches tall; you’re only five feet, nine inches. But when you wake up in the morning, you’re still going to be five feet, nine inches.
Worries can be our mental and emotional companions. But Jesus says, in effect, that they’re worthless!

O men of little faith. Do not be anxious then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘With what shall we clothe ourselves?’ — Matthew 6:31

We waste a lot of precious time becoming anxious about things we have no control over. It won't solve our problems, and we'll never recoup the time we've lost. When we worry, we weigh ourselves down, which can lead to health problems and serious psychological issues. Worrying is a hard habit to kick. When I find myself anxious, my best tool is to concentrate on Bible verses. The more scripture you have memorized, the easier it will be to keep worry on the sidelines. This works for me, I believe it will work for you.
Much love, Dennis
