Recovery from Alcoholism- Worry is Playing God
....on the Road to Recovery
Worry is Playing God
Do you spend a lot of time worrying about the future? How things will turn out? Imagine lots of negative things that may happen in the future?
Isn't this really assuming the role of God for your life?
I am human so I am going to worry at times. That's the human condition. However, when I worry continually and excessively, it is clearly my attempt to control... not trusting in the true God, who has helped me for so many years.
The more I can trust God to take care of me and the future, the more peace I will have and the less I will worry... get angry... engage in addictive behavior... and so on and so on.
