You Don’t Have to Worry!
by Mary Beth Singleterry
Chronic worry is a bad habit that can be quite all-consuming. A wonderful lesson Christian Science teaches us is that any habit, with God’s help, can be broken!
The next time a “worry attack” comes at you, turn your thought to God. Realize that worry will in no way help the situation. The time and energy spent worrying would be better spent in knowing the truth about it. Ask God what you need to know about the situation and if you have in any way failed to be obedient to Him. Listen for His guidance.
If you are worried about your son’s grades in school, you can know that God created this child and cares for him. God’s plan for him is only good, and he expresses the intelligence of Mind (God).
Your family, your affairs, business, health, finances, are all in the hands of God. God loves you and is caring for you this very moment. Jesus says that God’s love for us is so great “the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” (Matt.)
Mrs. Eddy has these words of comfort for us, “Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them. It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full. There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness. Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort. And not only yourselves are safe, but all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited.” (My.)
Could you worry, if you really knew God is right there with you? Of course not! Well, the truth is, He is right there with you! You and your loved ones are wrapped in the warmth and comfort of His care. Feel God’s presence, let Him enter your heart, and let that put an end to worry!
