“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Philippians 4:6).
We as Christians are commanded by God through the apostle Paul in such passages as Philippians 4:6 to “be careful for nothing” or to not worry. In times like these, with the Delta variant of the Covid-19 pandemic on the rise, it is a temptation for many to become worrisome about contracting this serious virus and/or spreading this virus to their loved ones and others. There are many who have already had this virus and who are dealing with the effects of having Covid-19 now. No matter what category you fall in, this past year and a half has been like nothing we have every seen in our lifetimes. That is why it is important to try to remember what Philippians 4:6 says, and not worry. For some, this is easier said than done. For those of you who are reading this and who might be struggling with worry and anxiety over the pandemic, or over any other challenge you are facing in life, here are some ways to overcome the temptation to worry.
