Determine One Small Step

Sometimes it seems worry is just too overwhelming to get control over.  It’s easier to just let our minds slip into the ruminating loop of worried thoughts. 

To make it more manageable ask yourself, “What is the one small thing I can do today to help me resolve my biggest worry?” Keep it simple and easy. For example, if you are worried about finding a job, a small step might be to spend one hour today starting on a resume. 

It might be that in asking this question you realize the situation is truly out of your control. In this case, maybe the one small step is talking to God about it and asking Him to help you let go of the worry. Or maybe you go to scripture, or seek advice from a trusted friend or family member to get direction in what your next move should be. 

Determine one small step you can take to make worry more manageable on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday. 

I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. 

Proverbs 4:11-12
