This week in my personal life I have chose to work on worrying.
So anyone who knows me knows how I worry. Within the last few years I have learned where you can go in the Bible to relieve this issue and I have realized that worrying is a sin. The proof for me comes from Romans 14:23 listed below.
"But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin."
When I recognized that worrying was a sin I concentrated on the passage below. In fact I have it on my computer at work to help me remind me.
Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version)
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"
So in short I need not worry because I am a Christian, I know that God knows what I have faced, and what I am facing and will face, I know God cares about what I face in life and also that God has promised to take care of me.
For me it is important to remind myself of this often.
