Theresa Miller, PhD.

Did you know that a long-term study of ordinary people revealed that 99% of the things we worry about never come to pass? Even more importantly, the minutes that the average person spends worrying, if strung together, would amount to four years of his/her life by their 40th birthday. All those years wasted in anxiety, fear, concern, and apprehension for NOTHING!

What amazing things could be achieved in that time, yet worry robs us of valuable years that can never be recovered. Worry is the death of action, stifles creativity, and prevents us from enjoying our accomplishments. It is the thief that saps our energy and steals our peace.

Often we feel that if we stop worrying we will have no protection. We may say to ourselves, "If I do not worry about this thing something terrible may happen and I won't be prepared", but actually we are much more aware of real threats when our minds are not clouded with imagined ones. When God sent an angel with a powerful message the angel first said, "Fear not!" We must be at rest to hear a message from God. God speaks in a quiet voice from inside us. Can we really hear Him through the fretful calamity in our minds?

We all want more peace. Well, sorry to say we're not getting any more peace. All the peace we need is already inside of us - we've just covered it up with worry. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)

Let go of worry and let the God-given peace that passes understanding emerge and triumph in your life. Do this and your happiness, your personal freedom, your entire quality of life will benefit enormously!
