I ran across this proverb in an email this morning and it impacted me so I wanted to pass it on to you.
“Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up”
(Proverbs 12:25, NLT)
I try not to worry so much and I am getting much better – mostly because I have devalued so many “things” and because I have enough years behind me to realize it is a total waste of time. I stumbled upon this little statement – I am paraphrasing – it goes something like this:
Worrying is your imagination creating things you don’t want.
I think my imagination can be used in a better way.
