ITâ€™S BETTER THIS WAY–Elder David Montgomery-3-30-2015
It is silly to cry over spilled milk and even sillier to cry over milk that hasn’t been spilled. Lots of people tend to â€œpre-worryâ€ and fret over possibilities. They stress over things that *could* happen. This is a good recipe for ulcers and wrinkles. If you want to look old and feel old, this is how to do it. I like the saying, â€œIf you worry why pray and if you pray why worry?â€ The antidote to worry is prayer. In the Lord, we have a very present help intime of trouble so let us seek him early. Let us call upon the name of the Lord and he will always answer. If we have a regular habit of prayer then we will avoid a regular habit of worry. Elder Sam Bryant says that worrying is like a rocking chair; it keeps you busy but doesn’t get you anywhere. Worry does no good but prayer strengthens our faith. Kind Readers, if â€œWorryâ€ is your middle name then it is time to change it. Change your ways too by putting it in Godâ€™s hands.
