Title: Faith, Worrying and Why We Shouldn’t Mix Them
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
Hi friends. Thank you for visiting Shamelessly Saved Productions website. In this blog we’ll briefly discuss the nature of having faith, our tendency to worry and whether or not we actually have time to do both.
The definition of faith is having complete trust and/or confidence in someone or something. In the case of our lives as Christians, our faith should be wholly invested in God’s word and his promises. Through times of abundant happiness and melancholy, we should always depend on God to see us through our situations.
The definition of worrying is having anxiety or to become severely alarmed about potential problems for the unknown. For example, the bills on your kitchen table are beginning to tower over and you’ve just been laid off. Naturally, the average human being would be on the verge of a mental breakdown, a serious anxiety attack or even worse. It’s difficult living with the feeling of having no control over the sanctity of your life.
Which quality do you find yourself possessing most of the time? Are you the person that stands strong according to their faith in God? Or are you the person that tends to worry about life more often than not?
No one is here to unfairly judge you based off of human nature. We all fall short of the word of God sometimes. But in all honesty, you need to choose whether you will have faith or you will continue to worry. It wouldn’t make any logical sense to say that you have faith that God will bring peace in your life but you continue to worry about the same problems. That is a clear sign that your faith may not be as strong as you say it is. God would rather us be hot or cold and never luke warm. It wouldn’t make sense to say that a person is alive and dead. You’re either alive or you aren’t.
Become alive through God’s word and have faith that he has already won the battle for you.
