At one time or another, all of us have gone through suffering from some anxiety. Whether it be from a loss of income, taking a big test, going for a promotion, etc., we’ve suffered from it.
However, those of us who are believers in the Lord know He is also called the Great Physician and so we have His book close at hand. The Bible has the answer to any situation we might have. In perusing Matthew 6:25-34, we find the most significant information regarding worrying about our lives as Christians.
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. herefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.“
Let’s put aside our anxiety
As with anything else we desire as Christians, we know we’re able to pray to our Lord to obtain it; we even get told about us being anxious in Philippians 4:6. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;”
Naturally, all of this requires us to believe in the Lord’s plan for each one of us and us being willing to put our trust in Him. We need to remember that Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us of the following: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
Given a genetic condition I suffer from, for the longest time, I’d always been anxious if I could find someone who’d be willing to accept me for the person I am inside and marry me. It finally happened when I was almost 43, and my dear OH just turned 39 and brought my anxiety regarding this matter to an abrupt end.
Have you ever suffered from anxiety? If you’re willing, why not share your experience and possible testimony here with your Christian sisters and brethren who might be suffering from it today.
Have a blessed day with whatever you’re going to be doing, especially if it’s something for our Lord and Savior.
