What worrying really means to a Christian

As a Christian, you learn thru teachings and experience that life here on earth is but a temporary destination and that this is not our true home.  If that is true (which i believe), then why do Christian’s worry so much?  Doesn’t worrying imply that you do not trust what you know to be true?  Francis Chan says it best…

This is something i am currently battling with.  Why do i worry?  Why am i scared?  I know that lord has something planned for me this week and I am excited to see what will unfold.  Again, Why am i so scared of the future?

  1. Perfect post for me today. I was overcome by dread a few times. Dread that I could not remember how to do my job…dread that my writing will never go anywhere or make a difference…dread that I will not be prepared for the holidays (…ugh)…dread a loved family member will not return to see us. But we must keep moving forward. God is with us. I must call out and listen to His genial replies and nudges. The dread is not from Him.

    1. It’s amazing how the holiday season (a season that is suppose to bring joy) can be a time when we get really anxious about even the smallest thing in our life. I pray that your holiday season is filled with Christ, family, friends and loved ones.
