If I am worried I try to ask myself

Luke12:25-26

25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

If I am worried I try to ask myself these questions? What is the worst possible thing that could happen if my worry did happen? How could God use this event for good even if the worst possible thing did happen?? I am convinced that worry in my life means that I am not trusting God who knows all of my needs and over and over in the scriptures has promised to meet my needs. I wonder if I always put him first in my life rather than working on that all consuming list of things to do? I seem to be very mixed up in thinking that if I worry, I am in control. I know that God is in control and I am not. If I pray more I know my God is mighty enough to do my worrying for me. In the Bible, Martha liked to be in control. Many times I have that characteristic even though I know God is really in control. I need to pray God, you are quite able to take complete charge of this situation. I am sorry that I tried to handle what was not really mine to handle. Thank you for taking my messes and fixing them. You are God, I am the servant. Please help me to do your will.”
