Life gave me reason to worry today.
Jesus said, “Do not!”
The facts I have say that if everything went according to plan, then all should be okay. The facts I have give me no reason to worry.
My imagination, however, is trying to tell me all the things that might have gone wrong. It wants me to worry.
Therefore, I will ignore it.
I will wait.
I will pray.
I will give my imagination something else to do. Something it was intended to do! Something productive and creative and beneficial to this life we’re all living.
Worry is a poor use of the gift of imagination.
I will anchor my mind in the facts, trust God with them, and go on about my day. I will pray whenever my imagination tempts me to worry.
What’s that? An e-mail! All is well.
Thank You, Lord. Amen.
