Anxiety. That is the label that many of us might attached to the year 2020. If we weren’t afraid, all we had to do was turn on the news channel of our choice, and the fearful voices were compelling: Join me in worry.
If you, like me, found yourself sitting in anxiousness at time, what did you do to remember that God tells you and me, “You don’t have to be afraid. I’ve got this.”
- Can you identify something that gnaws at your thoughts, distracting your mind so that you can’t give yourself to the new creation God has made you to be?
- Does God intend for you to handle your worries on your own?
- How much are you worth to your heavenly father?
- Are worries your mental and emotional companions? Are they worth that level of importance?
- Jesus took care of our greatest need at Calvary. Will he leave in you in the lurch in the little things?
- Try rewriting (or drawing) these verses. Keep them close and reread them when you find yourself worrying.
Pray with me: Lord, when the storm is raging and waves threaten to swamp our boat, show me your light shining bright saying, “I am your safe passage in this life and the next.” Help me to see it, to believe, and to live it. Help me to pack up my worries and send them to you without hanging on to them. My hope is in you. Amen
