Worrying, Again

I’m so tired of worrying. But I don’t know how to stop. The Bible has a million verses about not worrying, but they’re all verses that tell you not to worry. None of them tell you HOW.

I’m worried that my landlord will sell my house and I’ll have to leave. (He hasn’t said he was considering it but he sold one of his three properties last year)

I’m worried that my dog will die soon. (She’s seven and in good health)

I’m worried that I won’t have enough money to keep living in my area. (While not a ton, I’m making more money than I ever have)

I’m worried that I’ll never find a partner. I’m worried about car accidents. I’m worried about health problems. I’m worried, I’m worried, I’m worried.

It’s exhausting. And I don’t want it. I just don’t know how to end this cycle.

Any ideas?

    Hi Broken Saints,
    Thanks for sharing this. I am a chronic worrier, too. Habitually and miserably so. I know it goes against my Christian faith. And despite knowing that it is not healthy, I can’t seem to let go! It is a sad state day of affairs to be consumed in worries of things that may never happen. Hang in there. I’ve got the same problem.

      It’s so hard, isn’t it? And I totally realize it’s robbing me of my current joy. Let’s pray for each other!
