“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
If you want to give up worrying, the best thing you can do is accept Jesus’ offer and come to Him. It sounds so simple, but it can be extremely difficult. Why? Mainly because you can’t see Him as clearly as you can see the world around you. Furthermore, you can’t feel Him as much as you can feel the fear caused by your problem. In short, Jesus just doesn’t seem real enough.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
Jesus wants to get involved in your life, but you need to do something first. Read and reread his invitation. There are no caveats or qualifications, but you still have to do something: come to him. If you do that, you will find rest. Period. Are you willing to give it a try?
How do we get past the fact that we can’t see or feel Jesus? The best advice I have is to ignore your feelings, approach Him (glancing at an image of Him may help) and tell Him what’s on your mind. Let Him know what’s bothering you. The more you do it, the more real He will become and you’ll begin to experience the peace that only He can give.
