Sometimes you realize your life is so blessed that all your stress was ill founded. And if you are a worrier, you have a hard time resting in the beautiful moments. If you fail to actively give thanks, you begin to worry about the next bad thing that could happen. This is not God.
He says, over and over, "Don't worry. Don't fret. Don't fear. Don't envy."
But how do you "don't"?
First, He wouldn't say "don't" if it weren't possible.
So I'm just throwing this into my ring of curiosity. Every time I come across a "don't" in the Word, I'm pretty certain that there's a blessing and a "do" close by.
I'm going to look for the "anti-don't" for each one.
What, you want me to spoon feed it to you. Yeah, me too. I get it.
But this is so much richer. You discovering it as you go. Me discovering it with you.
Feel free to leave me a comment if you have a huge ah-hah and turn around (repent, get delivered, get changed) to find yourself free from a "don't."
