What is behind my need to “worry”? It’s a trail that ultimately leads me back to the root problem of a lack of trust. Fundamentally, worrying means that I can’t accept that life is happening just as it should – that I don’t need to be in charge of the circumstances of my life. I have forgotten that “there is a God and it’s not me.”
If I believe that there is Higher Power who is in charge, then it’s up to me to let that Power be in charge. Any worry on my part is a way of saying, “I don’t think that my Higher Power is really in charge. I better take over the reins for a little bit.” And that means that I don’t’ trust my Higher Power.
Worry is a lack of acceptance on my part. It is also a drain on my energy and a waste of my time. Worry makes my physically, emotionally and mentally ill. It undermines my faith and trust in a Higher Power. Worry has no effect on the outcome of any circumstance in my life.
Worry is fear-based. Acceptance is trust-based.
