"Who of you by worrying can add single hour to his life?"
(Matt.6:27, New International Version)
Likened to a rocking chair, worry often times keeps people moving but never getting anywhere. Because many tend to worry even about things that are not really significant, worry is also said to be the advance interest paid on troubles that seldom come." We all knew that worrying is not beneficial.
Unfortunately, worry grips and overpowers many of us. We people worry almost everything that put us under stress most of the time. The more we worry the greater the stress builds up inside us. and this can leave to emotional and physical breakdown. Worry and stress really can't add even a few minutes of our life but worse, it even negatively effects our health, diminishes our strength and shortens our life span.
We really can't avoid to feel worried most of the time, but we have to be brave, hold on to our faith and don't lose hope. Challenges and worries are part of everyday life that we need to overcome. Prayer will give us peace of mind and make us calm. Start your day with a smile and the world will smile back at you :)
Let Him have all our worries and shape our life, this can help us to live longer.
