whispers in the worry

Body of Water Wave

"You don't have to worry."

This is what He whispers to me, multiple times daily now, when I'm again stuck in a rut of thought that brings me nothing but stress: frantic thoughts about myself, my job, this body, the future.

"You don't have to worry."

Not audible, but clearly heard, a sentiment I don't understand. I want to plan, I want to know, I want to think my way through problems and people and come out with the answer fully formed.

I'm a solver, but there are some things I can't solve. Some things (actually, all things) that I have to give to Him to handle. When I start worrying about the next day's tasks or the future of a relationship or what people might think of me, I forget that He's right here, ready to whisper words of peace to me.

"You don't have to worry."

  1. I love this. I am here saying "I am okay and it'll be okay." I am adding this phase. "You don't have to worry. But we worry in nature. But that's okay!
