Why worry when you can pray?
Trust Jesus, He’ll be your stay;
Don’t be a “doubting Thomas.”
Trust fully in His promise.
Why worry, worry, worry, worry,
When you can pray?
Alfred B. Smith, John W. Peterson

My Dad used to sing this song all the time when I was a kid...and I find that it comes to mind more and more often.  In fact, my Dad's focus on living a life free from worry and full of prayer is the inspiration for Worry Free Mom.  Lately I've been thinking a lot about what it means to be worry free.  We all know that the Bible says to "cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you!"  And yet, most of us tend to continue to worry about things.   We don't give them to God because we want to hang on to them, maybe believing that we can take care of it ourselves.  

In order for me to cast my cares to Jesus, I have to truly believe that He is who He says He is.  (Another old song comes to mind here..."I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I've committed unto Him against that day!")  I have to believe that He will take those cares.  I have to believe that He can do something about them.  Imagine that you are in a burning building and you have to toss your child out the window to a firefighter waiting below.  You would not throw your baby to just anyone--but to someone you trust is going to catch that baby!  Can you picture this scenario?  I know that I would be looking for any OTHER way...any way I could do something else, rather than toss my child to someone I didn't believe would and could catch my baby. 

Being worry free begins with a true faith in Christ--and a confidence that He is who He says He is.  Because if we don't have that faith and that confidence, we won't cast our cares on Him.  Why would we?   The first step in a life that's worry free is to go back to the beginning--to your faith in Christ.  Know who He is and be persuaded that He is willing and able to catch anything you throw at Him.  We were not meant to live a live slogged down in worry, but to live life full of confidence in God's power and His ability to provide for us.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But just imagine if
you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in
its niche. Good blog!

I almost never comment, however after reading
a lot of responses here Untitled. I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these remarks appear as if they are written
by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites,
I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Could you post a list of every one of all your social sites like
your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
