Worry Jar

This is one I wrote several years ago. I haven’t been able to write anything since the 3 right after Mom died. Maybe soon.

Worry Jar to ease anxiety for kids and parents too

Just take this little worry jar
And set it on a shelf,
And when you have a worry that
You can’t deal with yourself
Just stuff it in the worry jar
And leave it there and when
You haven’t strength to handle it
Just give it up to Him.
The Lord will take your worries and
He’ll make them disappear,
If you will only trust in Him
And feel His love so near.
He promised you’d need not endure
More than your strength can bear,
And if you’ll only turn to Him,
You’ll find He’s always there.
He’ll always help and give you strength
If you will only ask.
You’ll find that with His willing help
You can do any task.
Don’t waste your strength by worrying
Put worries in this jar,
And give them up to God above—
He’s stronger than you are.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

    This reminds me of your poem entitled “Jar of TLC.” I have my jar sitting on a shelf above my computer and look at it daily.

      It is a similar theme. I have another one with the same idea called Little Worry Jar. If I haven’t posted it yet, I’ll put it up soon.
