I haven't done one of these "When Lyrics Speak" posts in a while, and decided it was time for another one. I've been hearing "Nothing's Worrying Me" by the Collingsworth Family a lot lately, both on the radio and on repeat on my iPod.
Sometimes this happens to me with songs, I'm singing along with a song I've heard many times before and the lyrics just sucker punch me. As I was listening to this song, I felt like a liar as I was singing along. Could I honestly say that nothing is worrying me?
I'm by nature a worrier. I allow my mind to wander to "what if" scenarios and question things that could go wrong. I over analyze situations to the point that it's bad and ridiculous, and I know it.
As I was listening to this song, it was such a reminder that I don't need to worry and dwell on all the things that might or might not be. God is in control. This song basically says, "Bring it on," the wind can blow and the rain can come. You might get wet, but it will be ok. God has a plan and He's not only holding the world in His hands, but He's also holding our hands. We are safe and secure in the hope that we have in Christ. Nothing that we face takes Him by surprise, and nothing can ever take us from His hand.
My prayer is to look at the world more like this. It's a daily choice to not let my mind wander and to focus on the promise and hope I have in Christ that nothing should worry me!
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." - Matthew 6:34
