What to Do with Worry
by Charles R. Swindoll

Do not worry about tomorrow; 
for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day 
has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34

Here’s a question worth your time: What are we to do when worry comes knocking on the door of our mind? 

First, we must set our minds on Christ. “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things [that would worry you] will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). When the temptation to worry first arrives, that’s the critical moment. The tendency is to entertain it. To let it onto the front porch and allow it to sit there. But before you know it, worry has crawled in through the window and made itself at home! 

No, worry must be stopped. We have to decide that we are going to commit this worry to God right now and refuse to entertain it, even on the front porch of our thinking.
