HEAR // What benefit comes from worrying? The energy we put into worrying can often trick us into thinking that—by worrying—we can somehow control people or situations. We think subconsciously, “If I worry enough about my test/friend/health, I can and WILL alter the outcome.” But, no amount of worrying can add even an hour to your life. It’s just wasted energy. Instead, we have to learn to trust in God, the One who can actually control whatever we’re facing. What worry is consuming your energy today? Identify it and ask God help you hand it over.
