Worry is like sitting in a rocking chair, rocking back and forth. It's something to do, but you never get anywhere.

Sitting on your couch, wide eyed, and wringing your hands has never produced more income. Worry damages your emotions, your emotions start to lie to you, (because they are only the whisperings of the devil),and through fear, and doubt in God's provision for you, your emotions cause you to make bad decisions, and bad decisions destroy your life.

Most worry is totally uneeded. Its only when we are calm, and know that God is with us, and for us, that we can be still, and know that everything is going to be alright. Faith is what makes us calm. We trust in the Lord with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding. We acknowledge Him in all of our ways, and He will always direct our paths.

Can we pay the bills with worry? No. Worry and fear is the biggest form of unbelief, and unbelief is a sin. We must believe in our heart that God will always prevail, and that He is always in the background working on our behalf. Always know this and trust this. Also know that God works in His own way, and not always the way we think He should.

Always remember that the strength of the Lord is our joy, and that our own true happiness is realized when we are commited to Him, and especially submitted to Him.

Stay calm, take a deep breath, don't worry. Keep your faith in God. He will pay your bills.
