I have a confession. I worry. I worry about things that I have no control over. It's a really hard habit to break. Since getting pregnant I find myself worrying about a whole new bag of issues. Will my baby be healthy? Will I be a good parent? Will she be a good person? I'm sure most of this is normal but I am really trying not to worry so much, it causes unneeded stress and wrinkles.
I feel guilty for worrying so much because I know the God wants me to leave all of the worrying to him. I printed out a couple of bible verses that I have put up in my office. I look at them frequently throughout the day and it really helps. I feel more at peace. I don't worry as much.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I hope that this helps some of you worriers out there too!
