Why worry? Be still. Yes, just don’t worry. It is simple and plain. Yet, you worry about many things. Why is it difficult to do the simple - not to worry?

Yes. Often life is puzzling and decisions are tough when in difficult situation. So, you worry.

You have had a wonderful time, but that little niggling worrying thought creeps into your sub-concious mind, needlessly. Something, perhaps, is troubling you.

There are problems. There are bad times and difficult situations. Life, this is - the good, the bad and the ugly.

When in trouble, all you have to do is trust God to take care of all your difficult situations. But you cannot believe that things will change or that your problem could be easily solved. You can’t help worrying.

So, you continue to worry. You are restless. The situation is difficult. But it is even more difficult to remain still. You are thinking what to do? Nothing you do has helped the situation.

Now, what will happen? What can happen. What is meant to happen will happen.

No matter what you do or what you wish, what will be will be.

So does that mean you don’t have to do anything?

You forgot. You have to trust God completely. Faith can move mountains. Why is it so difficult to believe that?

Why is it so difficult to trust God? Why is it so difficult not to worry?

You can do anything. You have done all you can. But you cannot stop worrying.

You have given up or maybe not. But you are unable to give up on worrying.

You are angry and disappointed because you have failed again and yet again. You are capable and able. But things aren’t working out the way you want it. You forgot the old saying - Man proposes, God disposes. For God has a better plan.

The plans of man built with his Ego and pride are futile before God’s bigger plan for him.

Often we, as lesser mortals, are happy to settle for smaller things in life. But He gives us the best - which we often take it for granted. Yes. You did work hard for it, but you got more than you asked for.

You have had a raw deal. You feel you deserve better than what you got. You do deserve better. Count your blessings. You are blessed with more than you could see.

When troubled and faced with problems and difficult situation, when helpless, all we need to do is stand still. Leave it all to the Almighty to do the needful.

Step back. Stop struggling. Make way for your creator to take hold of every areas of your lives. Let Him take the wheel, steer your life around as he wills and let His amazing Grace carry you through all the way. Be still. Do not worry.
