A person with little faith will have a lot to worry about. If you find yourself or someone you know worrying a lot, start with a prayer to stop worrying and then work to build up your faith. Because you will find that in this life, there is a lot to be anxious about.
Starting with money. With everything that is happening in the world today, a lot of people are rightfully worried if they will have enough money in the future for retirement, emergencies, or just even for their daily needs. Inflation has rocketed so fast that people are wondering if they will have enough for tomorrow.
Too much worrying leads to stress. And too much stress also affects your health. Then you start worrying about your health, which adds to your stress. See how that can quickly spiral. So it’s not a surprise that stress is one of the top causes of disease today.
But the person who has faith can rest easy because there’s someone they can rely on to take up their worries and cares in this world – Jesus. Jesus promised that those who come to Him could expect a yoke that is easy and a burden that is light.
The good news is that we don’t have to carry everything on our shoulders. As Christians, we need to trust God that He will take care of us because we are His most valuable creation.
Let us pray.
