> But yesterday I found a swollen lymph node on my neck and that sent me into an obsessive panic. I haven't felt that way on a long time. I went to the doc today to have it checked out and she eased my mind a bit. I realize that I need to let it go but I don't know if I can or even how to do it! I could really use some help with this. Can anyone give me some ways to let this go and not worry. I will appreciate any advice! Mrs. C


Dear Mrs. C,

I know worry is horrible. It brings up ugly reactions like stress and anxiety and even panic attacks, and it is usually about something we have absolutely no control over. I am almost completely worry-free now though. The following is a Bible passage that I try to live by (from "The Message" Bible):

Phillipians 4:6-7 "Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

It was a process of continually laying my worries and cares at the Lord's feet in prayer, and then making a conscious decision to not pick them up and worry about them again. But like I said, it was a process. Many, many times I would find myself worrying about something just after I just prayed about it, and I would have to deliberately lay it down again.

I'm not sure this is what you were looking for, but I hope you will give it some consideration. It will be a wonderful day when we come to the place that we can completely just walk away from worry forever. God bless.
