Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)
Karl Pillemer, professor of human development at Cornell University and a world-renowned gerontologist (someone who studies older people like me), asked 1,500 people over age 65 the following question; "What do you regret when you look back on your life?" The most frequent response is rather surprising, but also very instructive; "I would have spent less time worrying" and "I regret that I worried so much about everything."
Being one of those older people, I think I understand their regret about spending (actually wasting) so much time worrying. First, 99% of the bad things we spend time worry about never happen. Secondly, we have absolutely no control over most things that we worry about. By the way, if you do have some control, stop worrying and do something about it!
But most importantly, God is in total control and; we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
So many times in the Bible God's children are told to "fear not!" Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous hand.
The biblical antidote to worry or being anxious is prayer; Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)Maranatha!
