Needless Worrisome Worries

Thirty minutes of irritation or worry use as much energy as eight hours of actual work.”
The Ethel Cotton Course In Conversation (1962 Edition)

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare (or peace) and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
Jeremiah 29:11

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?"
Matthew 6:25

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 5:6-11

"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesians 1:2
