I come from a long line of worrywarts. I am third generation, at the very least. My mother and grandmother passed this affliction down to me. I sometimes get wrapped up in trying to micromanage all aspects of my life, my hubby’s life, my mother’s life, etc, because I’m worried about what MIGHT happen. (As if worrying will stop a bad thing from happening.) Every now and then, Jesus jabs me in the side and reminds me to read about when he said “Do Not Worry”.
I know you think I’m nuts, but when I’m praying, Bible passages will jump into my head. Now, I don’t know for sure if Jesus is giving them to me, or if I am doing it subconsciously. But, how I figure it is “When in Doubt, Thank God”. So, when I get a Bible passage jump into my head during a prayer, whether it is my subconscious or Jesus’ recommendation to help answer my problems, I read it.
