Anxiety

One Day at a Time

One Day at a Time

Matthew 6:34“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

The Allure of Control

We want to map out the future to reduce uncertainty. But obsessively worrying about tomorrow steals joy and productivity from today. Jesus calls us to stay present and trust God one day at a time.

The desire for control is rooted in fear and doubt. But the antidote is remembering God holds the future. He will equip us for whatever comes when we rely on Him daily.

Entangled by the Future

When we fixate on the “what ifs” ahead, anxiety takes root and chokes out peace. Living in the imagined negative future is draining. It blinds us to God’s presence now.

Shift your focus instead to actively trusting Christ in the present. Refuse to fast-forward in your mind. Receive His strength for today.

Lord, Calm My Anxious Heart

Jesus, when my mind spins with fearful projections, speak Your truth to silence these lies. Quiet my racing thoughts. Calm my heart with confidence that You reign over the future. Keep me mindful of Your presence now.

Anxiety in the Heart

Anxiety in the Heart

“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
7. Self-consciousness
8. Panic
9. Flashbacks
10. Perfectionism
 
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!
