"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Most my life I have grown up in an atmosphere of worry and fear. If any of you are familiar with my story, you will know the amount of fear my mum had and has to this very day.

The words below and the symptoms fear produces holds so very true. I can certainly vouch for that! But, in the meantime God asks us to cast our cares and be anxious for nothing.

I heard over and over again last night at a worship service in a song that resonates in my heart still this morning, the words....."Love comes down and fear goes out." Even though my heart cannot fully connect to God's love just yet, I know this is the answer.

Worry Is a Waste
by Joyce Meyer

Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? —Matthew 6:25

Once you allow the spirit of fear to take hold of your life, you open the door to other spirits that want to grip your heart and cause you to freeze up, unable to move forward in confidence and assurance. Worry and dread are both relatives of the spirit of fear.

Or look at it this way: Fear is the parent, and worry and dread are the children. The Bible clearly teaches that God’s children are not to worry. When we worry, we rotate our minds around and around a problem and come up with no answers. The more we do it, the more anxious we feel.

Worry starts with our thoughts, but it affects our moods and even our physical bodies. A person can worry so much that it makes them feel depressed and sad. Worry places stress on your entire system and causes a lot of physical ailments, such as headaches, tension in muscles, and stomach problems. It’s no wonder that 80 percent of chronic worriers also have a poor self-image—their confidence has been eaten up by fear and doubt!

Lord, You know what I’m worrying about even as I pray. Help me to see through the lie that I am believing and to replace it with truth. Amen.


  1. Thanks for sharing this, JBL. I find that I worry too much - I'm very good at it! - and retraining myself to think otherwise is tough. But we are encouraged not to worry - and, instead of worrying, encouraged to pray.

    Thanks again

  2. JBR excellent post on worry. Glad you can at lest recognize that it's all about God's love. One day your breakthrough will come. I know it. And I'll be here for it. God Bless.

  3. Whoops! JBR not JBL! Keyboard skills on a small hand-held device not brilliant!

  4. I can relate...thanks for sharing this.

  5. Thank you for sharing Joyce Meyer's words. She is so good.
    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. what a powefrul message, thank you for sharing :)

  7. It is very important to remember that we are not in control and that worry is useless (yet very real). I needed this especially today, thank you for sharing it.
