“Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan?” – Matthew 6:27, WEB
What use is worrying? If things do not turn out according to your desires, can your worrying do anything about it? Or what if things turn out well after all? What if you’ve worried yourself so much only to find out things have turned out far better than you could ever control or imagine them to be?
It is useless to worry. Reserve your strength for far better things like dealing with whatever will happen.
If things do not work out in your favor, you will have no other choice but to accept it and to move on from there. Start over if you must. Cry if the grief is too hard to bear. Do everything that is possible to overcome your troubles and trust in the God who cares for you and watches over you.
If things turn out to be far better than where your own thoughts could ever take you, raise your voice in thanksgiving and praise Him who has made all things beautiful in His time.
“…deeds are done which appear so evil to us and people suffer such terrible evils that it does not seem as though any good will ever come of them; and we consider this, sorrowing and grieving over it so that we cannot find peace in the blessed contemplation of God as we should do; and this is why: our reasoning powers are so blind now, so humble and so simple, that we cannot know the high, marvelous wisdom, the might and the goodness of the Holy Trinity. And this is what he means where he says, ‘You shall see for yourself that all manner of things shall be well’, as if he said, ‘Pay attention to this now, faithfully and confidently, and at the end of time you will truly see it in the fullness of joy.” – Julian of Norwich, Revelations of Divine Love
