Ever Have A Tune Stuck In Your Head?

It's called an Earworm. An earworm, sometimes known as a brainworm, sticky music, stuck song syndrome, or Involuntary Musical Imagery (INMI) is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing.

I have these all the time.  After years of memorizing music, I just do it automatically.  

But here is the tune that is stuck in my head. 

Sick and tired of being sick and tired
Had as much of you as I can take
I'm so done, so over being afraid

I've gone through the motions
I've been back and forth
I know that you're thinking you've heard this before
I don't know how to say it
So I'm just gonna say it, yeah

Fear, you don't own me
There ain't no room in this story
And I ain't got time for you
Telling me what I'm not
Like you know me well guess what?
I know who I am
I know I'm strong
And I am free
Got my own identity
So fear, you will never be welcome here
The Breakup Song by Francesca Battistelli

1 Peter 5:7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Cast all your fears and worries on Christ.  He cares about everything that you are going through.  

One year I was visiting some family out west, and as kids do, we went camping outside.  My cousin was asking me questions about my faith.  As a 10-year-old kid, I didn't have a lot to go on.  But what I had I freely offered.  I told him that Jesus cared about His every need, everything that He was going through.  He quipped back to me, "You mean to say that God would care about my big toe if it hurt?" I said yes, and He said, "I don't believe it."  

Most people don't give their cares to Christ because "They don't believe it."  OR  They are ashamed that they have to.  OR  They want to "clean it up a little" before they give it to Him.  

Believe - don't be ashamed and don't worry about the mess.  It's time to have a break up with fear.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, here are all my fears, I don't know what to do with them.  AMEN
