Why worry when you can worship? Why worry when you can pray?


Pastor Mark Scarr’s message yesterday was a timely reminder to me personally as I can sometimes be distracted by things that make me worry. At times of being worried, Luke 12:25 reminds me that worrying is not beneficial to me. Jesus said, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? [Luke 12:25 NIV]” 

Part 2 of Pastor Mark’s sermon series “Beyond” highlighted “Turning Points” where I was reminded, “You can turn your WORRY into WORSHIP.” By worshiping instead of worrying, I am saying that God is in charge and I choose to trust Him. Once I truly give my worry to Him and just worship Him, the first tangible result of trusting God is experiencing His Peace.
