To be worried simply means
THINKING about UNPLEASANT THINGS that have happened or that MIGHT HAPPEN; feeling afraid and unhappy.
Notice the key words being the “Thought process”, “unpleasant things”, “Uncertainties”, with “Fear” and “Sadness” being the end result.
The Worry Cycle is basically this:
Worry > Reduced/Lack of Trust in God > doubts in God’s love > Subconscious separation from God (The devil picks on this state of mind and continually feed one with lies) > Fear/Anxiety > Absence of genuine joy > Reduced productivity (in important/all aspects of one’s life) > Worry (and the cycle continues)
And this is very true on many levels, whenever we find ourselves allowing worry envelope our being as God’s sons and daughters, its usually because there’s already a shift in the level of Confidence we have in God and an alteration in our belief of God’s love towards us
Recently, I found myself getting worried and bothered about a whole lot of things. Things weren’t going the way i would love it and I began to THINK of a lot of UNPLEASANT THINGS that MIGHT HAPPEN and if i would eventually become all that I have ever wanted to be.
Now, the Bible is complete and the fatherhood/ Love of God is made explicit therein; and that’s why we must always remember that the mind is a powerful tool that must be guarded always and INTENTIONALLY
guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
Worry is basically a thing of the mind and its an avenue for the devil is able to break your defenses and make you a believe a lie –
- that God is not so interested,
- that former your sins are not forgiven yet, hence. your present predicament,
- that God’s love for you is performance based
- that you are in this thing (whatever it is) alone
- That things might eventually go south if you aren’t careful
- And that God’s word and promises are not yes and Amen
And this was exactly how i felt, God’s word began to lose its savour and when i prayed, i prayed with doubts in my heart
But trust me when i say this, Even when it seems you are alone, you are never ever alone. The HOLY SPIRIT is a forever companion, a stand-by, an advocate, and always ready to comfort you
And just some days ago, He reminded me of the FATHERHOOD OF GOD and how God loves me more than myself (Another blog post on its own 😋)
Now, i didn’t just jump up and started reading my Bible and praying without doubts all of a sudden but something changed – my state of my mind and my level of consciousness towards God’s unending love for me. I found the word of God in my spirit and i started to declare them, i acknowledged how i felt to God and he reaffirmed his love for me
And oh what peace engulfed my soul, i found joy in my spirit and rest came to my bones, and that’s one reason this blog post gets published today asides that i have been busy and all.
So my darlings,
Anytime you find yourself in the worry cycle, its totally fine! Nothing to beat yourself over. Instead, sit down to think about what you are thinking about and evaluate, it might just be that your fears are getting to you and the devil is beginning to sell you lies and steal your peace and joy.
And instead of moving farther from God and wondering if he actually really cares, Fill your mind and words with God’s word. Trust me, its the complete package. Wisdom, Clarity, Favour, whatever you need are found therein
And also, never forget to engage the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT. You are not alone!
God loves you and has the best plan for you.
Thank you for staying till the end. I hope you were blessed 😍😘🤗
