What I’ve learned about anxiety is that it comes from overthinking and things we consume; whether it’s through: our eye gate, ear gate, or mouth gates the future is always what we are thinking about. Thinking about things we can not control causes us to become overwhelmed or creates procrastination because the thoughts are so overwhelming. This is not making an excuse, but anyone who has ever dealt with anxiety understands how it can be daunting. I have learned that planning for the future and thinking about it is ok, However, worrying about the future and the past including the guilt, shame, and animosity it may contain… can consume us and cling to us can also create anxiety. We must know that the present is important it’s a gift. We must learn to bask in the moment and if that moment is horrid… don’t escape it…feel…pause… pray… take a breath and release. Know that God has you and he desires what’s best for us. Trust him don’t be anxious. Anxiety is fear of the unknown and relying on your own strength. God desires to help us. You may not understand: how, when, or where, but relinquish those anxious thoughts to “the one” who knows the beginning from the end. I get it… I promise. I am not only talking to you, but I am talking to me as well. Take a deep breathe in… hold… breathe out…and pause. Trust the Lord and lean not unto your own understanding. He knows the future and plans he has for you not to harm you but to give you hope. Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 5:5.
I want to pray for those who suffer with anxiety or anything that is attached to it I also want to pray for those who are unbelievers. God is an anchor. Jesus died for our sins and promised to never leave us nor forsake us. God is the truth and he cares about everything concerning us. Just release reach out to him daily. For unbelievers the bible says if you confess with your mouth and believe in heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Romans 10:9-10 & John 3:18.
I leave you with this:
The Lord is our anchor…He cares and his word says to cast our cares upon him, because he cares ( 1 Peter 5:7).
I Love You!!!
