Anti-Worry Words

Two definitions of the word worry given by Webster’s Dictionary are: to feel or experience concern or anxiety or to be concerned or troubled. 
No physician in this world can prescribe, or recommend anti-worry medication as a cure for concern or trouble. As one prone to worry, I have discovered that the most effective way to deal with the habit is to refer often to Words of comfort such as these found in the pages of the Holy Scriptures spoken by Jesus, and recorded in the book of Luke 12:27-28:
"Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”   
Are you a worrier? Do you find these Words comforting also?

Not a worrier, but those words are timeless, and very reassuring.
