the promise

worry is a war for me. battle after battle.
and worry is a mild, sweeter sounding sin than what it really is–unbelief.

God has taught me again and again that if i leap out, he’ll catch me.
and still i brace myself for impact.

“Difficulties heaped upon difficulties can never rise the level of the promise
of God…Unbelief looks at the difficulty. Faith regards the promise.”

  1. I'm so sorry you're worrying. Worry is one of my “besetting sins.” I know I don't need to worry, and yet I still do. I tends towards pessimism in general. My personal mantra about worry is this: worrying robs me of my joy and God of His glory. Knowing those things, why do I do it??
