152.0 When Worrying Replaces Faith: An Example of Feeling Vs. Faith in God.



We know we shouldn’t worry about things – that ‘giving it to God’ is the only way to truly calm our anxieties.  In life before grief, you may have tried hard to ‘stop worrying,’ to stop being in control of the things you had no control over, but it wasn’t easy.  Now, in grief…well – that’s a whole different deal. Your loss and how it occurred can cause you to fear new things while amplifying the fears we already had.

The song of the week (Letting Go) has lyrics that speak to this: “Maybe I don’t have to see what the future holds to trust Your promises to me. In my weakness You are strong. And in the moments when I feel powerless, you are closest to me then.”

Today I’m going to share a situation in my life – just a few weeks ago – that illustrates this point. I was disappointed in my reaction because it reminded me of when I walked through grief and tried to control everything on my own. Instead, I should have given it to God and had faith to let him handle the outcome.


WORD of the Week    Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.  Phil 4:6-7
