DAY 18: Don’t Worry About Your Life!

“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 than food, and the body more than clothes? - Matthew 6:25 

This is going to be a GOOD day. Today, you are NOT going to worry. You’re not going to worry about your life for AT LEAST 24 hours! 

How will you do it? Like the Bible says: 

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7 

Take 5 minutes and write a short list of the top 5 things that rob you of your peace. This is a list of the 5 things that most often cause you anxiety. They could be finances, your health, your children, relationships, your job, whatever! Now, re-write them in order of priority. If you’ve been honest and done your homework, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what is causing you to worry. 

Then, take 10 minutes, get on your knees and pray through each item on your list, starting from the least important. You’re going to SPECIFICALLY do the three things, EXACTLY as the Bible says: 

  1. Prayer: Communicate with God about a particular issue 
  2. Supplication: humbly requesting God's HELP with a particular issue 
  3. Thanksgiving: trust Him by thanking Him for taking care of it! 

After doing this, you will get up and NOT WORRY for the rest of the day. This is a WORRY FREE day! If you are tempted to worry, just remember, You have already spoken to God about this, He’s ON IT! 

Tell us how that felt in the comment section!
