Who sits at the wheel of a racing car?
I would say a professional driver!!!
Yet even some-one as experienced as that, can still crash!
How would you go sitting beside an expert?
Could you sit securely...fully trusting in their skill?
Or...when the ride became rocky,
when a smash looked eminent,
would you reach across and try to take the wheel?
If you did, do you think you might save the day?
Or, would you simply add to the confusion and make the situation worse???
Making you think?
When we try to grab the wheel of life and do it on our own,
can we be the cause of a disaster?
The results may be something you might always regret.
This doesn't mean,...do nothing.
It means, stop worrying!!
Pray about it earnestly, THINK before acting,
and let God do the directing.
Looking at the word WORRY:
In the Old English the word is wyrgan
and in Old High German it is wurgen,
Both of these words mean, " to Strangle, to Choke"
The out-come of worry is anxiety and depression so in the end,
it may kill you.
The complete opposite is to read, trust and rely on what God's Word instructs..
Do Not Worry
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,
what you will eat or drink; or about your body,
what you will wear.
Is not life more important than food,
and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
(Matthew 6:25-27) God knows best!
When a fisherman castes out his net,
He MUST let go..
Otherwise, he won't receive!
It is the same for us!!!
Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
