To Blessed to Be Stressed

By: Emily Miller

You have enough to do in your life without worrying about things you cannot control.

You have a family to get to a million places at once. You have a job to do or projects that need to be done.

So why worry about things beyond your control?

There are certain situations in life that you just cannot do anything to change the outcome of in a positive or negative way.

It only wastes your valuable time and energy to worry about an unchangeable outcome.

This has taken me almost 22 years to get through my thick, overly emotional young adult brain.

But this last week it took a friend sharing the following verse on facebook to finally understand the statement too blessed to be stressed.

 Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. 
-Jeremiah 17:7

Remember to count your blessings, not your worries. Life is too short to stress about things beyond your control, so embrace each day and live it to the fullest.
