God’s Promises – Professional worrier?

Day 1938: More promises!

Scriptural promise:  I need to give all of my worries to God, because of how much He cares for me!  I Peter 5:7

Thoughts/questions:  There is a story told of a man who knew someone who constantly worried.  If he was being blessed, he worried that it would not continue.  If he was experiencing a time of need, he worried whether on not he was ever going to make it.

Well, the man met the worrier on the street and noticed he was without a care in the world, so he asked him what had happened.  The worrier responded that he didn’t have to worry anymore because he had hired a professional worrier. The man responded that this was absolutely wonderful and asked how much he had to pay his hired worrier? The now carefree man said that it cost him $1,000 a day.  How can you afford to pay that much?  He replied, “I can’t, but ‘that’s his worry’”!

Similarly, give/cast/throw/hurl or fling ALL of your worries and cares to the God of the universe! Let Him be your professional worrier!

Suggested prayer:  Lord, I give all of my worries to You because of how much you care for me!
