All Your Anxiety

A man said on the radio that, “Anyone who doesn’t have high blood pressure theses days simply isn’t paying attention

Two men were talking about this issue of worry and anxiety and one of them said to the other:

I have a mountain of credit card debt.
I have lost my job
My car is being repossessed
Our house is in foreclosure
But, I am not worried about it.

The other man said:

I don’t understand – I would be worried sick if I were you!

The first man said;

Well, I don’t have to worry because I hired a professional worrier and he does all my worrying for me.

The second man said:

That’s fantastic! How much does your professional worrier charge for his services?

First man - $50,000

Second man - $50,000! I thought you said that you were broke. Where are you going to get the money to pay him?

First man; I don’t know. That’s his problem to worry about, not mine – that’s why I hired him.


“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety “– George Mueller
