What is worry?

According to the Dictionary
 Worry – a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems.
Synonyms for worry
  • distress
  • misery

Worry has been described as a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.

“The words fear not occur many times in the Bible. The word of God has no suggestions; only commandments. So if we fear and worry, we are being disobedient, and disobedience is always a sin.”     ~ Corrie ten Boom

casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.    1 Peter 5:7  NKJV

casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].      1 Peter 5:7   AMP

    The first word I thought of on the first study was “fear” and the second thought about when I was asked about the other way I’d think it…was…”trust in the Lord.”

    1. Lois, thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I also think of “fear” because if we really follow worries to their root it seems that we will find fear there. Praise the Lord that He can deliver us from it. I pray we will learn to choose “trust”.
