Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

Where does your worry end up? Who hears your troubles? We have friends or family or maybe even a professional like a minister or therapist or counselor that we turn to to release some of the anxieties and troubles of life. Certainly, a measure of uncertainty in this world is to be expected. We can’t know or control what tomorrow might bring. What we can control is where our expression of worry goes. Now if you are expecting me to tell you to bottle it up or to dump it all on one person, let’s go to the Scriptures.

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.

Proverbs 12:25 (NLT)

We must be conscientious of the human being who is dealing with our worries, and I am speaking of both the person we are speaking to and ourselves. Not that we shouldn’t rely on one another (especially professionals who have boundaries and training to help us with this) but that we have a better Counselor in the Prince of Peace.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)

If your prayers are unsatisfying, meditate on your blessings and release the burdens to the Lord. Trust in his ability to lift you up and live in faith.
