Sadie Robertson Huff Explains How ‘Worry Robs Us’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Sadie Robertson Huff and author April Rogers recently discussed why we need to give our worries to God on an episode of Huff’s “WHOA That’s Good” podcast.

“Worry robs us of trusting the Lord to meet our needs. We falsely believe that if we worry, we can invoke some kind of control over our situation. But in reality, God is the one who is in control and has the power to change out situation,” Huff read from Roger’s new book “Resting In Jesus.”

Resting in Jesus,” a 30-day devotional, teaches readers the “art of letting go of daily chaos to find perfect peace in Christ.”

“When our phones are pinging, children are crying, emails are pouring in, and the refrigerator is empty, finding time to rest in Jesus can seem like a near impossible task. If we aren’t being productive, we feel like missing out and falling behind. But Christ invites us to sit at His feet, especially in the midst of our daily chaos,” a summary reads.

“The example of Mary and Martha offers us a picture of how God understands not only what we’re going through, but where our priorities really need to be. Resting in Christ is not a luxury, it’s a necessity…and it informs everything else that we do,” Roger’s synopsis concludes.

“So I just have to stop there because that was like a gut punch,” Huff said. “Like, that is so real. And I think, especially for moms, I see this being true that we worry about our kids, right? Like you worry about your kids all the time. But it almost feels like you should worry about it because you almost have some kind of like control in the situation of like worrying for them. And I see like a lot of moms struggling with this.”

“So, what do you feel like, when you wrote that? Like I’ve never even thought about the tie of like control and worry,” she continued. “But I was like, man, I do that so often. Me worrying about it feels like I can control something in the situation even though I’m aware that I can’t. It’s just something I can hold on to.”

“It’s all an illusion anyway,” Rogers added. “Like, we really don’t have any control over that, and so if we just kind of like loosen that grip and give it to [God] then what we will find is that peace and that presence comes in.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Huff:

Sadie Robertson Huff recently hosted author Dr. Daniel Amen on her podcast, and the brain disorder specialist shared the “best brain health advice” Huff has ever received.

“The most important strategy to raising mentally strong kids is to model the message,” Amen said. “You have to be mentally strong yourself or your messiness will get passed down and you don’t want that…”

Huff knows that her audience will question whether it’s too late to make efforts toward their mental health if their children are already teens or of adult age. So she asked Amen what he wants to say to the people who have doubts.

“To the person who thinks am I too late to get on this train, you know, if your children are 40 and you get yourself more mentally strong in your interactions, you’re always going to be their mother,” he said. “You’re always going to be their father. So I often say it’s never too late to have a better brain and a better life…and it’s never too late to have better relationships and a better life.”
