Faith Walk: Refocus on GodAuthor: Dr. George Flattery
Sometimes we worry that we are worrying too much.
Worry is focusing on our fears instead of trusting in God. It is practical atheism. The key to overcoming worry is not to say, “I’m not going to worry.” That’s never going to work, because we’re focused on what we don’t want. The key is not to resist worry but to refocus on God and his promises. Martin Luther once said, “Pray and let God worry.” We pray and then we let go. We trust God to open the doors at the right time.
