5 Steps to Help You Worry Less

Worry is like a plague of our body. It attacks our mind, then our heart, and over time, it can consume our overall health. Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life.” How good are you at obeying that verse?

One part of maturing as believers is to begin to eliminate worry from our life. I’m not claiming we ever get there, but as we grow we should, over the years, worry less.

Here are 5 steps to having less worry:

Pray more – It’s a trade-off. You can never do both at the same time. Which would you rather do?

Do wise things – You’ll have less to worry about.

Read more – Of course, I’d recommend the Bible first, but read things that speak of truth. Fill your mind with good things. It will crowd out the bad things.

Choose your thoughts carefully – Why worry about what you can’t control? Think on things you can control, rather than things you can’t. (For a sermon on doing this, click HERE.)

Trust more – Step up your faith. God is on His throne, He has a plan, and He will do what is best. Every time!

Be honest: Are you a worrier?

  1. Hi Ron!

    I used to worry alot before I realized what worry meant for a Christian. When it suddenly became clear to me that worrying about the future was actually the same as saying to God, “I don’t believe you!”

    I really don’t feel that a true Christian would say that they don’t believe God’s promises; however, that is exactly what worrying about things is saying.

    Learning to trust God with everything is a discipline. It is our opportunity to turn away self and to start trusting God for everything.

  2. Yes Ron! You are absolutely correct.

    To overcome worry in our life, we need to flex the muscle of gratitude at regular intervals. As a famous song goes, we need to keep counting our blessings and be grateful to God.

    Also, I think that praying more, medidating on His Word, thanksgiving and praising Him will help a lot in helping us worry less.

  3. I thought that too, at first. Here is the thing – It usually does this when I click on a link in an email notice (from your site here). But just now I clicked on an email link and it is not skewed and works. So it is intermittent and I've noticed that too. You just never know sometimes, heh. The next time I see it skewed, I'll take a screen shot so you can see what I mean. It may not happen again, but if it does, I'll make note. Have a great weekend. :D

  4. Good Advice, as always. :D

    OFF Topic: I'be been getting an error when wanting to tweet your articles for about um, a week. The only way to tweet them is from the lone tweet button at the bottom of each entry. The left sidebar share stuff is goobered up somehow. You should have someone look at that. It's skewed and it gives a twitter error when trying to tweet from there. I thought you'd want to know. :)

    • I wonder if it's a cache issue now, because I just did it and it worked for me. I did have a problem with it about a week ago. I'll look into it further. thanks for letting me know

    • Thanks for the prayers Ron! I might be including some for a little bit of snow too…would like to see just a small tad of winter.

    • Update Ron….it's 2:17 AM, the "medical concern" that I listed above arrived at 8:19 tonight, weighing in at a hefty 8lbs …and 2 weeks early!!! Thank you for your many prayers lifted. All are well and we could have 'worried' ourselves silly, but we chose to pray and trust. Oh yea, almost forgot….boy baby!

      God is awesome.

  5. I do worry less…but I had a big case of it last week. It took some repeated prayer to get over that one. I'm still striving to have a "Hakuna Matata" outlook. =)

  6. I've been a worry wart in the past….but on my walk now, I trust, I have faith, I believe….I'm now the blind man, and I can see….without worry blinders. I've got to dig deep and hold on to these 3 things many times a day in order to abandon any thoughts on worry and anxiety…which will consume. I don't want to spend my everyday with worry consuming my heart.

    Thanks as always for the post, heading in today for medical concerns for a family member…how timely a reminder….trust, faith and believe….not worry.

    Don't worry, be happy. Cornball song, but I like it more and more everyday.
