anxiety.

The world is a big place with scary problems. Cancer, terrorism, war, crime, the future – all cause anxiety. There is torment with anxiety. Our minds are not at peace since we may worry, obsess, or fear. They all equal pain.

Did you know God promises peace? No matter how horrible the situation is, you can have peace. In fact, perfect peace.

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3

So, keeping your mind on the Lord and trusting him will give you peace. That’s because you have to take the anxiety and place it in his hands. Surround yourself with people who have hope. Distance yourself from negativity. Meditate on the scripture and find out what God is like. Reading a psalm each day connects you with the heart cry of the psalmist’s distress … and what the psalmist concludes at the end!

God sees everything. He cares for you.

  1. Perfect post for a Sunday and for any other day. There’s so much anxiety around, it’s good to be reminded that we can let it go. There is a solution. Thanks Kathy. Great start to the A to Z Challenge.
