Sometimes the reason for our anxiety cannot be pinpointed to a single cause. Others the reason for the worry can be found in front of our face. It does not always come on as a result of a traumatic experience, abandonment, or neglect. Sometimes it is just a fear of those things happening even though they have not, and quite possibly will not.
For me, my constant worry and anxiety is sometimes just the fact that I woke up. Everything I do brings me a unease that makes sometimes breathing impossible to do. When I finally do feel a sense of peace, the full panic begins because what have I forgot, what will I do wrong, why are things so easy.
I have started a Bible study plan for overcoming anxiety. The worst part about this is it asks that you learn to let go of control and trust in God. Letting go is not always easy, especially when you constantly worry about going at all. I hope in this path, I will learn how to recognize the lies that are keeping me anxious and allow me to break free of those strongholds. Allow myself to truly “Let go, and let God.” I want healing and restoration through Him, and His word.
Psalm 34:4 – I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
Psalm 55:22 – Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
I have started a separate blog that I will be posting on as I go through these plans and devotionals. I will post a link to them here as well. You can see what I post there here on Daily Devotional
