Stop Trying so Hard

Often worry stems from trying so hard to be someone we are not meant to be or do things we are not expected to do. We put overly high demands on ourselves and then worry we won’t attain those measures. Then, if we are worried about the situation, we put extra work into manipulating and controlling it. 

Try not trying so hard for a change. Live your life with time to reflect, observe, just “be”. Patiently allow God to direct you, rather than taking matters into your own hands. You may discover a peace and freedom that is far more satisfying than the empty activity of worried work. 

Stop trying so hard on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday. 

Better one handful with tranquillity
    than two handfuls with toil 
    and chasing after the wind. 
Ecclesiastes 4:6
