Psalm 119: 133
Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. NIV
Worry is an addiction.
I didn’t know that or see it until earlier this year. I figured it out through a powerful Bible Study, Breaking Free by Beth Moore.
I had done a Beth Moore study in the past, and had really benefitted from it. So, when this one was announced, I signed up. I knew that the study was focused on breaking free from the strongholds that rule your life, but, I honestly thought to myself, “I don’t have anything to break free from, but, I love all of the women who have signed up to do this and I really enjoy Beth Moore, so, I will sign up too.”
Three weeks in, I was both devastated and overjoyed to learn that worry was ruling my life. Devastated because I gained a whole new perspective on what I was allowing worry to do to me, and overjoyed because now that I could see it, I felt that, with God, I could conquer it.
It was in the midst of that study that I began this project.
Now, 139 verses later, this verse is precious to me.
This is my prayer today.
