What a solid reminder that I needed today. I spend so much time stressed about success that I lose sight of how many blessings I'm taking for granted in the process. Praise God I don't need to know everything to have faith in his purpose in my life.

Lord, we come to you today and give you our worries. We thank you that you care for us and are concerned about us. We give you our burdens and thank you for your love.

Almighty, God. Shepherd of souls, we hear the call of Andrew who is boldly stepping forward to lay his worry at Your feet. In faith, we ask that You blind him to the worry and open his eyes to the opportunities to show Your light to those around him. Amen. Focus on seeing God today, Andrew. When tempted to look at your worry, pray for whatever or whomever is bringing the worry to your doorstep, flip the script.

Glorious God, we come to You today to give all our cares to You. We rejoice in having You that can lighten our burden. Many times we worry, but we know You will provide for us. Let our worry turn into a desire to serve you and serve others. Help us to be the answer to someone else's worry. All for Your glory Father. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

DAY 209: Releasing The Grip of Worry



The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles.  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.  A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.  ~ Psalm 34:17-19


The word "worry" was used in Old English to mean "to strangle".  By the 1500's it was used to mean "harass by rough or severe treatment" similar to wolves attacking sheep.  Now we define "worry" as: "to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts" 

In a jacked up turn of events, our worry unleashes hell upon ourselves like a wolf attacking a sheep.  God sent His son, our shephard, to keep the wolves off of us. Why, then, do we attack ourselves with worry? 

With God's help, you can make those worries powerless.

  • Pray for new eyes so you can see yourself without these worries.
  • Find someone to speak life into your worry.
  •  Write down your worry and give it to a brother to pray for your release.
