Choose worship not worry

One of my many hangups is a bent to worry. I am a past master at taking some small problem and by examining it from every angle I can think of end up with a potential life crushing crisis.

The Bible tells us not to worry. But telling me not to do something just does not work for me. I need an antidote. And for worry that antidote is worship.

Instead of worshiping the problem I need to worship God. What I worship dictates what looms larger in my life.

I read an old hymn today:

I’m sitting in His presence, the sunshine of His face
And with adoring wonder His blessings I retrace
It seems as if eternal days are far too short to sound his praise!

And it seems that the Apostle Paul discovered the same thing:

We all with open face beholding as in a glass, the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord. - 2 cor 3 v 18

O the love that sought me, O the blood that bought me, O the grace that brought me to the fold.
Great hymn!
