What does the bible say about worrying?

Have you ever wondered this? I needed a refresher course today. And maybe, just maybe someone else who will read this does, too.

Since worrying should not be a part of a believer's life, how does one overcome worry? In 1 Peter 5:7, we are instructed to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” God does not want us to carry around the weight of problems and burdens. In this verse, God is telling us to give Him all of our worries and concerns. Why does God want to take on our problems? The Bible says it is because He cares for us. God is concerned about everything that happens to us. No worry is too big or too small for His attention. When we give God our problems, He promises to give us the peace which transcends all understanding (Philippians 4:7).Of course, for those who do not know the Savior, worry and anxiety will be part of life. But to those who have given their lives to Him, Jesus promised, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Thanks so much for posting this! I too have a hard time turning everything over to God and am a "worrier". I did need a refresher to remind myself, even as hard as it is sometimes, that he is in control and I just need to enjoy life!

Not sure if you got my reply to your comment on my blog. I haven't quite figured out how to reply and people receive it! I too wish we were better friends. I hate that 2 certain people ruined it for us! Thanks for following my blogs! I love to keep up with you guys and read about precious little Grace as well!
