“Do not be anxious about anything…” (Philippians 4:6)
Have you ever had an anxiety attack? Most of us have.
Anxiety is a feeling that we have when we fear the unknown, or fear something may go wrong, or doubt our ability to cope. If you’ve never had any of these feelings, call me. I’ve always wanted to meet Superman or Superwoman
Much of what we get from ministers or other would-be helpers is common sense advice. It goes like this: Don’t worry about things that may never happen; take it one day (hour) at a time; don’t borrow trouble from the future; analyze the cause of your anxiety and do something to remove it. These ideas are good, but I’m sad to say, most of the time they simply don’t work.
The best advice about anxiety comes straight from God’s word. It says don’t allow yourselves to be anxious about anything; instead pray about everything.
Tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do these things, you will find a peace that passes all understanding.
Try it—you’ll like it.
