HOW TO WORRY

Laughter filled the air, bringing a smile to my face as I watched them run round the church singing

“O le pa mi la yó, Iro, Iro nla”

Translated “you can’t beat me at Ayo (a Yoruba game), lie, big lie”

It was a beautiful thing to see: two little girls chasing themselves while dancing to the tune of their own song. Their Father was somewhere around and though they couldn’t see him, they knew he wasn’t leaving them behind. They laughed and played like they had no care in the world, it was the kind of scene you would see and just uncontrollably blurt out “awwn” (if you know, you know). I wished I could be like them, without any worry despite the many issues of life. And then it hit me. I actually am supposed to be like them; I also have a Father, He who sits on His throne in Heaven, the Creator of the universe, the Lover of my soul, my Provider and my Keeper.

I used to be the type of person that panicked at the slightest hint that something wasn’t okay. I don’t think it was just me. Many still do it today. People have issues to attend to. Issues like: where will our food come from? How hard would we have to work to keep our grades up? This culture of worrying is not healthy – it shouldn’t even be happening. As Christians, we are assured that we have been brought into the Family of God; made sons and daughters of the King and joint heirs with Christ – so it is really unnecessary to worry about what we will eat the next day or how our lives will play out. Jesus said in Matthew 6:30-34, (paraphrasing here) “worry not what you would eat or drink, not even about tomorrow, but seek the Kingdom”- understand that God’s got you. He has said He will not ever leave you or forsake you. He even asks you to cast your cares upon Him. It would be unwise to cast our cares on Him and still worry. Christ also said “which one of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” I’m sure you can’t but if you can, please HMU, I need to get taller!

Worrying as a Christian is not merely pointless but also detrimental because as someone once said, it is like dying twice. Therefore, cast your cares on Him, and don’t worry. Let your life be at peace and filled with laughter for you have He who neither sleeps nor slumbers watching and caring for you. This is why I like the song by J Moss. It’s called “God’s got it”, and you guys should check it out (link’s below). The lyrics say:

I ain’t gonna worry about the money in the bank,
I ain’t gonna worry about the gas in the tank
I ain’t gonna worry about the things I can’t control,
I ain’t gonna worry about it, all I do is pray about it
Hollup, Why? God’s got it.

Therefore, relax in His arms, God’s got you! If you would love to have this life free of worry and full of Joy, I would like to introduce you to Jesus Christ, He’s the Savior of the World, the One who died for our sins and rose for our justification, reconciling us back to God. Believe in Him today, and accept Him as your personal savior, so even when you’re faced with troubles all around, you would never be troubled by worry, because He’d have you. God bless you and stay peaceful.
