Some where this year I forgot what it said and my version is " Worry about everything, bite your fingernails and make myself sick and try to do it all on my own. Grumble, complain and whine and become so tense I add 10 years to my face."
So this morning I realized that in order to have peace I need to watch those thoughts that are out of control and I have to start taking every thought captive. It may be a war but it was so worth the freedom that I experienced from fear and worry.
I just thought I would tell you about it because I really don't want all of those worry lines on my face.
I wrote down a couple of quotes because it reminds me of how through my own inattention, I had allowed worry, anxious thoughts and fear to become the rulers in my own life rather than the freedom I want to have each day. " Such strange creatures are we that we probably smart under blows which never fall upon us than we do under those which actually come." ( C.H. Spurgeon)
"Fear is more dangerous enemy than those you fear." ( Thomas Watson)
Not to mention being aware of how many, tiny, little prayers that God answered for me. To be reminded how much God does care. I forget. I really did have a shocked look on my face when I had to hold out my shirt to carry six eggs up to the house. Even Ron asked what was wrong. I am really a woman of little faith.
I hope you have a lovely weekend today,
