Worry/Anxiety

Worry/Anxiety. 

 

Do you ever worry? What about anxious thoughts? Are they manageable or overwhelming? 

I have had moments where I literally thought I could not breathe and felt like I would faint right where I stood.

The fear can be debilitating and crippling and cause us to forget who we are and who we belong to.

But... it doesn't have to be that way. Because we know who our daddy is, and He is our strength! 

 

The fear, worry, anxiety is a false emotion that does not own us. There is an enemy that would love for us to believe the lies - that God doesn't care about you or your situation and on and on and on.

 

However, we know that God's Word is true, and we can trust what He says about us today and forever! 

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1

"For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all he does." Psalm 33:4

 

When in doubt walk it out! Let's look at the scriptures to see what God says and what He has in store for His children.

 

Philippians 4:4-7

"4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
The peace and understanding to get through a difficult situation or season comes only from God. We must pray with a thankful heart as we ask Him to carry us through the trials and valleys. 
I have personally cried out to God and felt His peace overwhelm me in the best way. If you are walking through a painful season you can trust that He is walking alongside you and longs to comfort you. 
This holiday season be purposeful in thanking God for the blessings you have received and share your overflow with those around you.
Blessings to you and your family!
