Faith vs. Worry

Remember this. need to remember this. Worry is on the adversary's side of the line not the Savior's. So for today, I choose not to worry. I choose faith. Because faith in him is what will produce amazing results--NOT worry.

Why is it we struggle so often with worry? There's no need. Like my Mom always used to say to say to me growing up: "Worry is like a rocking chair: it uses up a lot of energy, but gets you nowhere." (or something like that).

The Savior has overcome the world. And He lives to help us through every trial we face. Why not choose to push aside the worry trap we so easily fall into, and choose instead the freedom of faith in Jesus Christ? He will help us. And everything will work out for our ultimate good. Of this I know.

Your Happy Challenge for today is to try it and see for yourself. Every single time a worry crosses your mind today, say, "Fear/worry, you do not serve me. I am filled with too much faith and light for you to bother me. You go have a nice day!" And then replace with a scripture or quote that comforts your soul. One of my favorites is: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4:13)

What scriptures or quotes do you use? What is your experience of pushing out worry and filling your mind with faith?


  1. I always enjoy your thoughts. I agree it is not a good idea to worry but it is hard not too. I do have faith in Jesus Christ and the one scripture that helps me the most not to worry. Is Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust in the Lord with all thy heart.........
    Thanks for the reminder to not worry and to use a scripture to help you have more faith in Christ.
    Blessings and hugs!

  2. You'll remember a quote I had on our fridge forever by Elder LeGrand Richards: "For every worry under the sun, there is a remedy or there is none. If there be one, hurry and find it. If there be none, never mind it." Besides it's better to have smile wrinkles than worry warts!
    So many favorite scriptures about faith that I cannot choose one favorite. But i love Nephi's words in 2Ne. 4:34 "Oh Lord, I have trusted in thee, and i will trust in thee forever" Eu tenho fe!! :)
