John 14:26:  “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”

Great words from this past year’s study of John, reminding us that we don’t need to have everything figured out.  The Holy Spirit will teach us what we need to know when we need to know it.  So quit worrying!

Why Do I Worry

Why Do I Worry

To trust You, O Lord, is to say I love You
I wish I could say that I always do
To say I don’t worry would not be the truth
The desire of my heart is to always please You

Trusting is easy when things go my way
But O how I stumble when things go astray
You prove Your faithfulness time after time
Instead of thanking you I ask for a sign

I think back at my life and all I can see
Why did I worry, You were right there by me
A life without worry, how great that would be
A life without worry, than I’d be free

Your love kept me always from falling apart
I know I can trust You with all of my heart

You keep my paths straight
You guide me through life
My life I now celebrate
Worry or not

COMMENT ON WHY DO I WORRY

Worry seems to be a part of human nature.
I can say I will not worry but when the
problems come I do worry.

Worry is such a waste of time,
it doesn’t fix the problem.

When I worry I am not trusting God.
Even knowing that, it doesn’t keep
me from worrying.

God tells us not to worry, to give Him
all our concerns. I know deep in my heart
that there is nothing I am going through
that He is not attentive to.

When I go to Him in prayer, He promises to
give me the peace that passeth understanding.

What a wonderful promise. Peace is what erases
worry. Trusting what He promises is the answer.

1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your anxiety on him,
because he cares for you

Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in
everything byprayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known
to God. And the peace of God,which passeth
understanding, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus
