         My favorite spot to feel relaxed in is my bed with my air on.  Yes, it can also be a place to worry from but that is the fault of letting my mind wander and doubt from God's intended focus for me.  As the Bible says, 'Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?'  'Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.'
        ''The definition of "worry" is to give way to anxiety or unease, to allow one's mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles. How many times have you heard the phrase, "You are going to worry yourself to death." Worry drains our energy, affects our health and leads us to be unproductive.''
        What if the worst you can imagine really did happen?  Trust is knowing God is bigger than any of our problems and will make a way for us.  Most of our worries don't even come to pass, so that energy was wasted.  Time alone with God in prayer is never wasted.
       Maybe laying down in bed looking 'up' is the best position to truly feel relaxed.  'If we prayed as much as we worry, then we'd have less to worry about.'


  1. If I lie in bed and try to pray, the devil puts Mr. Sandman in my eyes. Doesn't he hate for us to spend time with the Lord? Again, I love my life verses, Phil. 4:6-7. They give me comfort and a beginning for prayer when I start to worry.

  2. Just this morning I read, "The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what." It is all a matter of choice. I have learned to try to say, "Just trust Me" over and over each day. Love you, T.

  3. I can't remember if I re-posted this or not... It's been that kind of a day. So I"m going to post it now - it's worth a second, third, and fourth reading....
