Why Worry?

today's reading.
Psalms 55   Give ear to my prayer, O God, and hide not yourself from my plea for mercy...

the blog.
Worry can be all consuming and distracting. And when we're determined to handle it ourselves and in our strength, it can totally derail us and pull us off course spiritually. David got that, and tells us straight up in Psalm 55:22 to give up those worries--to cast our burdens on God because He will sustain us.

So how can you take full advantage of Psalm 55:22? What are you trying to manage in your strength that needs to be given to God? Tami W. 

P.S. Today through Friday, January 4, we're airing a series called What Keeps Me From Growing, designed to help us deal with and overcome a number of common temptations that hinder our spiritual growth. Be sure to visit backtothebible.org each day to download a study on the day's topic, including a Baker's Dozen of Verses to help you fight each temptation.
