    Granny,

Yes, worry is useless, but as NancyPat said, "It is a major challenge for many of us."

God says in His Word, not to worry, and it took me some time a while ago to get the connection, between two distinct words. Those words are Worry and Concern.

If you look worry up in the dictionary it says:

verb

verb: worry; 3rd person present: worries; past tense: worried; past participle: worried; gerund or present participle: worrying

1. give way to anxiety or unease; allow one's mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.

noun

noun: worry

1. a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems

Now, this reminds me of darkness, negativity, depression, and being under someone's thumb, with your head being pushed to the ground, and you're not able to get up. ALL OF THIS JUNK IS FROM THE AUTHOR OF LIES, WHO IS Satan.

It you look concern up in the dictionary it says:

verb

1. relate to; be about.
"the story concerns a friend of mine"

synonyms: be about, deal with, have to do with, cover; discuss, go into, examine, study, review, analyze; relate to, pertain to
"the report concerns the war"

•be relevant or important to; affect or involve.
"they should not pry into what does not concern them"

synonyms: affect, involve, be relevant to, apply to, have a bearing on, impact on; More
be important to, interest

"that doesn't concern you"

•interested, involved, affected;
connected, related, implicated

"all concerned parties"

So, this tells me that the word concern, is having an interest in, edifying, enlightenment, light, and all of this comes from the AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR LIVES, GOD!!!

Which one would your rather be? Worried, or Concerned?

Be blessed,

The Puzzle:

Saturday, July 26, 2014

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by
his little daughter, Kelly. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his
magazine on which was printed the map of the World.

Then tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Kelly, and said,
"Go into the other room and see if you can put this together."
He was sure that would keep her busy all afternoon!

After only a few minutes, Kelly returned and handed him the
map, correctly fitted together. The father was surprised and asked
how she had finished so quickly.

"Oh," she said, on the other side of the paper is a picture of
Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then the
World came together.....
