I know for me I usually hit the worry button before the prayer button. And I know better…I’ve read this verse numerous times, I once had screen saver on Windows Vista that showed this verse all the time. For me I can be a big worry wart. If you don’t believe me ask my wife. I worry about the small things such as what we are going to eat or what I’m going to wear. But that then leads to me second guessing decisions I make, and worry myself to death at times about what I wrote in an email or how I responded to someone. I get myself sick at times or worry myself into low confidence.
But I am coming around I have been really working on praying more instead of worrying so much. Its a big change for me to actually put this action into place. And by doing so it has really calmed the stress and anxiety in my life. I still worry many times a day, but putting prayer into action over worry really does work! Try it!
