Could it be that you have been visited by the greatest stealer of our joy (a.k.a. "the Joy Thief")?
Worry is not only fruitless, but it steals our joy.
- Priscilla Shirer
There is good news; there IS an essential cure for worry - prayer.
Through prayer our trust is renewed in God's faithfulness (Matthew 6:25-34). He invites us to cast ALL of our anxieties and problems on Him, because He cares (1 Peter 5:7).
Through prayer we receive the peace of God, which comes to guard our hearts and minds (Philippians 4:6-7).
Through prayer we receive the strength needed to do what is required of us to do (Philippians 4:13).
Through prayer we can rest assured that God does work all things for our good (Philippians 4:11).
Do not let fear and worry bind you with their relentless shackles but bring yourself before the God of peace and hope. Give Him your troubles and sorrows. Restore your joy.
