Oct. 16, 2016 – I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN

I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Matthew 6: 34

oct-16-2014The most insidious thing which the student of Truth must handle is worry.  We do not consciously set aside times for worry, as we do for right thinking, and often we are startled to find that we have been wasting an hour fussing over some problem or fear.  We immediately say “But, I know better than to do that,” and we start making positive statements of Truth.  This is what Jesus meant when he said “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.”  Like sentries of an army, we must watch hourly over the trends of our thinking and the deep feelings of our souls.  To start the day with a firm resolve not to worry is to practice the teachings of Truth.  To follow this resolve with a constant watch of the mind and its activities is the fulfillment of the teaching.  This is a friendly universe and God interpenetrates it as a loving Presence and all-intelligent Mind, so we fret not and go ahead.

Because I know that I am the operation of a perfect God, I do not worry.  I let that Mind be in me which was also in Christ Jesus.  I acknowledge It in all my ways.  I trust Its guidance, Its plan and Its purpose.  I believe that Spirit is in me seeking to express through me.  I walk this day in full confidence that my good is seeking me, and I shall know it as it appears.  Hour by hour, my every need is met on time and in order by Divine Mind and Divine Love.  Never late, never delayed, always at the instant I need God and His Intelligence, It is with me and thinking in me.  I refuse to worry, for I trust God and man, and I live in peace.

  1. I truly believe that if you follow your heart ~ it will bring you right to where you are supposed to be. So…here I am. I just finished reading “I Refuse To Worry…” which is exactly what I needed to hear and to get into my head, and into my soul. I want to thank you for helping me cope today. I am very interested in learning more about the principals of your UP Church. For many many years now I have been seeking a church where I feel comfortable, where it fits the way I feel and what I believe. But I live in northern Illinois ~ a long way from California.
    Again, thank you for helping me cope today. I will visit your website again.
    Sincerely,
