31 Days, Day 17 No Room for Worry

The struggle to have peace in the midst of lots of activity possibilities is very real to me now.  I’m not quite sure why I ignored it for so long.  Worry and anxiety are now issues that are popping up when before it was just stress.

Now instead of piling the schedule full I’ve begun to become anxious when I feel like I’m starting to get over-committed.  This is just as bad as saying yes all the time.  I know quite well the verses in the Bible that specifically address anxiety and worry…

“And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life” Matthew 6:27

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is it’s own trouble” Matthew 6:34

My goodness why do I trade one bad habit for another?  When I make wise decisions or when I add too many things too my plate worrying does nothing to help.  If I’m going to continue on this journey of less crazy I have to leave anxiety out of the equation.
