Worry Is Worthless! God Takes Care of You


Worrying is worthless! You probably know that already, but the question is, have you stopped worrying? What is it that right now you are worrying about? I’m reminding you and me of how useless and worthless it is to worry. So, whatever you are worrying about at this moment is a total waste of time. Casting all your anxieties on God, because he cares for you.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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. There is an underlying assumption by those who worry that they have at least some level of control over their circumstances which, in reality, only God has ultimate control over. There is something inside of them that knows that they are not in control and that they cannot control all that happens in their lives, but they sure want to be able to be in total control. They want to know, fully understand, and control all that is going on, that has gone on, and that will go on. They effectively want to usurp God’s position as sovereign, all-powerful, and all-knowing. It is not that they are seeking to replace God, for even this would worry them. But it is that they are struggling to abandon themselves and those whom they care about to God’s control. God is in control, and He does care.  But those who worry struggle to believe that and appropriate it. Those who worry tend to mistrust God and have an overly-inflated view of their own ability to make their lives what they want them to be.

The promise of God is that He will not allow His children to beg for bread. He will care for our needs and that’s the promise you can claim. To surrender to God does not mean that we submit to fate as if we have no responsibility or choices to make in life. Many times our own difficulties are a result of our own making and irresponsible behavior. Nothing happens to us that is outside of God’s permissive will, and he is totally in control of our days.  And because of who we are, we should not worry. Do you know how much energy it takes to worry?  You are spending lots of emotional and mental energy when you’re in worry mode and has it ever done you one bit of good?  No, of course not.  Worrying is worthless!  That’s a really good reason for any sensible person to just refuse to worry. So we must not worsen matters by not doing what God has already instructed us to do. We are not helpless beings, and we do have a will and a responsibility to act.

The road to freedom from worry is to trust God, to rest in His love, and to truly believe that He is able and that we are not. Will we let God take the controls of our lives today, knowing and believing that He can do it better than we can? If you are a real worrier, you can be sure people know it, because you talk about it, it shows on your face and body language, and it’s not particularly attractive. Remember, worrying is worthless, a total waste of your time, and it indicates you need to stop and check out why your worrying instead of trusting the Sovereign God, who is your Heavenly Father.

Your Best Teacher Is Your Last Mistake


Your best teacher is your last mistake because It’s not the mistake that matters; it’s how you deal with it, what you learn from it, and how you apply that lesson to your life.

Life is full of goof ups. And sadly life is full of people who believe that they are their goof ups. As people we all come to a point in which we realize that our lives haven’t and will never be perfect. There is nothing that we can do to make our lives perfect, as life offers no guarantees.

The people who are able to realize that this is an opportunity to win in life by continually progressing are the ones who treat their errors as lessons from the past to aide in their futures. While the people who are never able to see past their mistakes are left to live a life without hope, and without many thoughts and plans for the future.

The solution to getting past your mistakes is definitely one that is much easier said than done, but we must try. Keep progressing, hold your head high, and don’t live in the parts of life that you messed up in, keep moving towards a brighter future.

Let Go Of The Past And The Past Will Let Go Of You

You can never change what has happened in the past but you can make your future brighter by remembering your past and learning from it. One of the greatest things we are given as humans is the ability to learn from our past experiences, whether they are wins or pitfalls.

Remember that every day you are given new breath you have choices to make. These choices will lead you into the rest of your life, no matter how small or unimportant these choices will seem to be at the time.

So make it a point to look forward proactively. Meaning, don’t tread lightly when making decisions on a day to day basis. Choose things that will allow you to grow from who you once were into the person that you always desired to be.

Remember a mistake may be a mistake once or twice, but the mistakes that you habitually repeat will eventually become your story. Learn and become great from the experiences of yesterday.

Don’t Waste Time On People Who Don’t Deserve It


Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don’t even deserve to be an issue in your life.

Life seems to be much too short to be stressed over people who don’t even deserve to be an afterthought in your mind. Many times we find ourselves being guilty of something that we more often than not realize is belittling to our own lives and progress made. Life isn’t something that we should knowingly allow ourselves to waste time in, because we are never guaranteed any more time to spend in this tough world.

Instead of dedicating your thoughts and energy to someone who doesn’t matter, focus on keeping people around you who do matter! Or in other words, keeping people around you who won’t be a problem in your life, but instead people who help you to create solutions for the problems you face.

Life is more than what we as a majority or society if you will, tend to think it is, and life is also much shorter than most men predict. Give your time to becoming the best person you may become, so that in turn, you may help others to become the best they may become.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late


One day you’re going to wake up and realize what you missed and it’s going to be too late.

Having regrets? To be honest we all regret, whether we choose to admit it or not, we all have things and opportunities in our lives we passed on and wonder what would have happened if we chose to take advantage of them, or in some cases even, not take advantage of certain opportunities. With that being said we must learn how to deal with regrets in our lives.

We can either choose to let those regrets bring us down, and mess with our happiness or we can look at those regrets as positive, using those regrets as our motivation to keep progressing in life. We must realize what we have gained since we made this regret. When we go through things we gain valuable life experience, life experience that probably wouldn’t of been gained without these regrets. Also, make sure you take steps to ensure that you are fully able to analyze an opportunity in the future, so that you wont have any new regrets late on in life.

You Are Good Enough


You are good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, strong enough. Believe it and stop letting insecurity run your life.

No matter what feelings have us down at certain points in our lives, and have us feeling as though we aren’t made to overcome whatever complications that we are going through we must take time to realize the fact that we are bigger than our problems, despite how small they may make us feel. You are good enough; to overcome those who try to bring you down, because when someone or something is trying to bring you down, remember they are beneath you.

You are good enough to stand up for what is right, we all have our flaws, true, but if you don’t stand up for what is right, no one will. You are good enough to receive what you fought hard for. Don’t be ashamed of being blessed for your hard work you deserve it. It is important not to gloat and to be too proud, but being blessed for your hard work is nothing to be ashamed of. You are good enough for this world, the real question is , is the world good enough for you?

A Problem Is A Chance For You To Do Your Best

Doing your best is first sparked by being yourself. If you can’t plant seeds that will bear fruit that you have no appetite for, you won’t eat, and when you don’t eat, you starve. Your happiness is determined by a lot of things, but at the root of it all you have to learn how to be yourself, and learn how to live a life working towards becoming your best “self”.

There will be those who try to make your life miserable by trying to tell you what you can and cant do. There will be many obstacles and barriers on the way to becoming a powerful, and confident person, knowing which direction that you want to take in life.

But, we have to continue to strive to be our best! Everything that you do today will affect your future in some sort of way. Make the best decisions for you and for the people who you desire to bless and be an inspiration to!
