“If you’re going to worry, don’t pray. If you’re going to pray, don’t worry.”
I was fortunate enough to be at a gathering with the Women Presidents Organization in Minnesota enjoying the incredible musical journey Jevetta Steele took us on recently.
When someone sings in a way that touches your insides, moves you and offers wisdom your spirit is aching for, pay attention. Jevetta shared the quote above from her mom and proceeded to serenade us with her daughter and son playing and singing along with her.
Sometimes wisdom comes from unexpected places.
Believing in something good, whatever your definition of Spirit, God or the Universe is, allows a way to let worry subside. Hearing it in this simple phrase was just what I needed, right when I needed it.
Either worry or as my Mom said, “toss it in the lap of the Lord.” It’s one or the other.
I’m happy to toss it, and my energy flows again.
