You’ve gotten so preoccupied with these worries that the Word of the Lord gets shuffled into the background. You stop depending on the Lord. All you can think of is how you are going to save the day. See what happens? Everything coming out of your mouth is worry, worry, worry and me, me, me!
You become so self-centered in your worries and concerns that the very thought of “casting all your care” on the Lord is forgotten! Instead of holding onto your faith, you embrace your worry, and wallow in fretting, doubt, fear and unbelief coming out of your mouth like horrendous thorns and weeds.
You become deeply depressed. The more you think about it, you realize your physical, emotional and mental well-being are in a downward spiral. You become convinced of one of evil's most common lies: All is doomed. The world is terrible. We live, we suffer and then we die.
That’s not how God wants us to be!»
