“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25
Anxiety defined: A state of apprehension, uncertainty, and fear resulting from the anticipation of a realistic or fantasized threatening event or situation, often impairing physical and psychological functioning.
Symptoms associated with anxiety . . .
1. Excessive worry
2. Sleep problems
3. Irrational fears
4. Muscle tension
5. Chronic indigestion
6. Stage fright
Anxiety often turns to depression; a sense of dread for the next day which sets up a sort of defeated mentality that says tomorrow will be at least as difficult as today was, maybe even worse, so why even get up!
Anxiety is a gift from the devil; a gift you must refuse to take, much less open.
To fight off fear and anxiety; designed, to steal, kill and destroy; you MUST use and understand God’s word! It is the only lasting and permanent antidote for this ungodly disease!
Jesus said . . .
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:23
Take some time today and look up these verses; you will be very glad you did!
