Welcome to purposeful living today. The prevailing challenges in our world today will make us to be professional worriers about our future. It is amazing how worry about what to eat, where to go,  insecurity of our future and even that of our unborn children...
We worry about  having a job and also worry on how to sustain the job.
We worry about our past, present and future.
Everything about the outcome of our life is  birthed from worry, which has done more harm to our society, it generates evil.
I discovered that worry is a seed that never dies,  it continues to grow and bear fruit.
A mother worries when she was still a single about getting married. She finally married and became worried if she can have children ,  she now has a children. she is worried about how to cater for her children,  she was able to train her  children through the University and now they are graduates. She still has not stopped worrying about her children  and their future.
The more we worry the more we continue to worry and worry makes us to be sorry. What has worry added to your life?
Leo. F. Buscaglia opined that" worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrows, it only saps today of its joy".
Hello!  Jesus loves you and does not want you to worry, he says this to you...
" 25.Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26.Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27.Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28.And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29.And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30.Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31.Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32.(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33.But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34.Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matthew 6:25-34 KJV).
Friend you see that worry does not add to you but saps from you.
 Worry simply means that we don't trust God. So, stop worrying, start trusting God.
Medically worry is a cause of high blood pressure,  panic attack,  anxiety, cardiovascular problems.

How to deal with Worry:
1. Pray instead of worrying - Philippians 4:28:30.

6. Meditate on the word, for God's word is the medication to life- Joshua 1:8.

God has destined you to live as an over comer above fear and worry.  For the righteous live by his faith. You are to walk in faith...
