To my brothers I have been so blessed by God and Jesus… I started with nothing in my life and for some reason I have been blessed with a good education loving family and daughters and the ability to try and help others the best that I my brother that is struggling with his finances and his job set back… sometimes it is best to look within as well as to look outward… What are you good at? What do you envision doing when you close your eyes and think of your future? Are you on the right path to make that happen… Faith teaches you things happen for reason… You need to be strong in critical thinking to figure out what that is… get a bad ass attitude and go for it and don’t look back… Just say thank you Lord for this opportunity and for another day… Be mad as hell and go change your life… Your friend and brother John

I realte to this so much. I'm so full of worry now for our financial situation. My job demoted me for no reason, took away my raise and cut my hours. I've been praying so hard to find a solution to this. I'm a huge worrier always have been especially when it comes to money but im trying to put my worry and stress on his shoulders. I know they are definitely bigger than my own. Heavenly Father I ask for you to be with me and as well as any other husband or father who is trying to make ends meet. I know things happen for a reason and that reason is your plan. I trust in you. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I humbly approach Your throne of grace and mercy. Father, thank You, that we may lay or worries at the feet of Jesus, and He willingly take these burdens off our back, and carries them for us, that we may be free to worship You, come into Your loving grace. my worries are self induced, self inflicted, because of an addiction, bad habit, corrupt speak, unmanaged thoughts, and dark heart. Lord Jesus, the Light of my life, fill me with Your Spirit, that I may walk in freedom and faith in communion with You. may I begin each day fresh, receiving forgiveness for yesterday, and live a life worthy of the sacrifice and suffering Christ had to endure to save me from all my sin and worry. 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 twisted 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.
