Six Little Words

Who knew six little words could hold such power.

You see, I'm a thinker (code for worrier), and I have a lot to think about.

The other day as I was "thinking" about something, God spoke six little words directly to my heart.  There is great power in these words, so I shared them with my sweet sisters and God used those six little words to speak to their hearts.

Because there is such power in these six little words, I want to share them with you.  Remember, these are God's words, not my words.  These six little words brought complete peace to my heart,

It's not yours to worry about.

So every time you feel yourself start to "think" about something, just repeat these six little words, and make them personal for you.  Say to your soul and to the worry, "It's not mine to worry about."

There's power in those six little words.

  10. You may get two of these thoughts today.
    I visited your blog again today. I enjoyed reading your thoughts and the six little words were so encouraging.
    I remember walking one day with a troubled heart an in prayer. A scripture thought came to my mind "Be Still And Know That I Am God.
    Thanks for the uplift today.

  11. This is great! It lets us off the hook when we give everything over to God. He sees the big picture when we don't. Its hard to do so thank you for this reminder! Great post!

  12. "It's not mine to worry about!" Thank you! My husband is looking for work, too. There are so many things we could choose to worry about, but none of it is for us. Is it? Beautiful!

  13. Lisa,

    I read this post this morning but was running late and did not have time to comment, these were words I needed to hear this morning before I left the house, it is not mine to worry about, I wish I could empty out my brain and fill it back up with these six little words.

    Blessings to you Lisa!

  18. Great words Lisa. I am a "thinker" also! Thank you for sharing this. I am going to write these down and post them at work to read, and share, throughout the day.


  19. Oh, girl. You strike true with that one! I had a troubling visit at the mental health hospital with my daughter tonight. I fear for her, for what our family is going through because of all she struggles with. It is not mine to worry about. But it seems so much like it is! I know, though, that like you said - it's really NOT for me to worry. It's His job.

    So good to find your site through Ann Voskamp's link-up.

  20. It's not mine to worry about. Words I needed to hear today. Thanks!
