Worry is a state of being that is only possible when we are not living in the present. It is evidence that we are anticipating a future that we think will mimic our past and the painful experiences that we don’t want to repeat. We worry because we are uncertain of God’s availability. Was he/she there in the past and we didn’t listen to the guidance? We can be certain that God was there. But we may not have been; we may have been projecting into the future, as we are doing now. Our minds can only hold one thought at a time.
Do we entertain worry or the presence of God? ~ Casey, Karen. Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow. Red Wheel Weiser. Kindle Edition.
The most powerful part of the quote is “We worry
because we are uncertain of God’s availability.”
Is it true God was there but we…our thoughts.
our minds…were wandering? Are our minds
present right now or are they dreading the ghost
of unpleasant experiences (reliving the past)?
Or are we projecting into the future?
Is it true our minds can only hold
one thought at a time? Do we entertain worry
or the presence of God?
Let’s entertain God!
