I'm sure if you're not a worrier, you have one in your life. The what iffers. What if this happens, or that happens, YIKES. What if you let go of thinking and worrying about something that, chances are, won't happen.
From my experience, worry is grouped with jealousy and envy. Useless, except to give one wrinkles, gray hair and a nasty disposition. Faith on the other hand gives one, hope, peace and love.
I figure God has the power to deal with these things better than I can. He has always showed up for me. Even in the direst of circumstances. It may, probably will, take a lot longer than you would like, but when it does it's sweet.
Many years ago my husband and I worked for a contract company that ran wastewater treatment plants. My husband was the manager and I was his secretary. Our contract ran for a certain number of years. There was a cancellation clause in the contract.
The city we were working for decided they could do a better job of it, so instead of utilizing the cancellation clause, proceeded to drag the company, and us personally, through the mud. I won't go into the gory details, suffice it to say, it was a frustrating and worrisome time.
In the end, they took back the plant and we were both out of a job. We turned it over to God, with much difficulty. You see our anger at these people ran deep. At any rate, our children brought us back to our senses, saying "All you talk about is work! Stop!".
As it worked out, we were better off than we were to begin with. Then, ten years later, the people who plotted our demise got their fair payback. All the leadership and staff ended up before city council. I sat in the back row and watched as all their shady practices, over ten years time, were revealed before the town. In the end, most of the staff and all the management team lost their jobs.
I must admit, it was very enjoyable to see, AND for them to see me sitting there, happy, healthy and witnessing them get back just what they had given to us. The sweetest part of the whole situation was the fact that we moved on to a better life and had no hand in dealing them justice.
So, stop worrying and relax. With faith, even if the dreaded event happens, God has a plan.
Fantasizing freedom from worry.
