Anxiety

Certain situations in life make me nervous. I don’t know what is going to happen, and I am not sure what to do, if anything about it. When these kinds of situations show up I work hard at obeying the command not to be anxious about anything, but to pray about everything, but I find my mind going back and mulling over the situation, and I can feel my stomach getting in a knot. So I pray some more, and keep on praying every time I think about it. God promises to give me a peace that passes all comprehension and if I don’t have that peace it means I haven’t prayed enough about the situation. I also pray for wisdom so that I will say the right things and do the right things in regards to any solution I might bring.

In our present culture of pandemics, inflation, and constant upheaval in the news it is so easy to let anxiety stay in our mind. Being anxious about life isn’t good for our health, our spiritual growth, our relationships with others, or our productivity in life. Many tend to think that they have no choice but to be anxious, but when God commands against it we certainly do have a choice. It takes discipline and self-control but taking our thoughts captive is essential and doable.

    Thank you Pastor Dee. Timely and helpful thoughts in these prophetic days. While reading through the Bible this year and Proverbs each month is very encouraging I still have to discipline my reactions to world events, and most uncontrollable circumstances.
    Some great Christian philosopher said “You don’t have to act like you feel”.

    God is sooo good!
    Thank you Pastor Dee for this very timely message. I’m sitting in the parking lot right now waiting to go in for a MRI to check for brain tumors.
    I lost my precious wife two years ago to a terrible brain tumor and six months later we also lost my sister to cancer.
    You are making a difference, thank you and God bless you…
    Philippians 4:6-7… I’m praying with thanksgiving! The other day when I was praying I decided that no matter the outcome of this test that I was going to continue to praise our heavenly Father…
    God is such a good, good Father!
