quotes about worry

“Whatever comes into my life comes through God’s filter. Nothing will happen to me that he doesn’t know about. God’s not going to say, ‘Oops! I shouldn’t have done that to her!’”
– Barbara Johnson

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. ”
– Leo Buscaglia

“Trouble’s just a storm that’s gonna past. Tough times don’t last.”
– Bad English

“Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith [but] they are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the passion of Christ.”
– CS Lewis

“But all who are among the living have hope.” Ecclesiastes 9:4a

“Let it go and start over. There ain’t nothin’ ‘bout it you can do.”

Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.

Worry gives a small thing a big shadow.

Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, then it’s not the end.

In the Bible, Jesus tells us, “Let not your heart be troubled.” This tells me that we have the power to choose not to worry. The fact that He says it repeatedly tells me that we need to be reminded of it!
