Anxiety 

“GOD met me more than halfway, he freed me from my anxious fears.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:4‬ ‭MSG‬‬


Anxiety is a FEELING

Anxiety is frightening 

Anxiety is intense 

Anxiety is normal 

Anxiety is an uncomfortable FEELING of nervousness or worry about something that IS HAPPENING or MIGHT HAPPEN in the Future. 

Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time. 

But when anxiety takes over your life:  

  • you become sleep deprived
  • your mind is racing and you can’t calm yourself down
  • fear of everything big or small
  • panic attack
  • fear of failing
  • uncontrollable tears when left alone 
  • abnormal heart rates
  • hopelessness 
  • constantly judging yourself
  •  you feel that you can no longer control your thoughts – it drives you to overthinking 

Anxiety happens when we feel that we have to figure EVERYTHING out all at once. 

When you are anxious, it can be very stressful to explain what’s going on inside your head. Chances are – you may not even understand it yourself. 

The Psalmist David says, “God met him MORE than halfway” …. he was a human just like you and I. 

God met him more than halfway. 

What a testimony of the faithfulness of God. I love the fact that we can trust God to meet us more than halfway. 

Next we read more of David’s confession – “He freed me from MY ANXIOUS FEARS.” 

This is great encouragement to know that God CAN free us from our anxious fears. 

But do you know what? The devil will purposefully blind some people’s eyes from reading the end of the verse – “Freed from my anxious fears.”

But to those who CHOOSE to believe that God CAN free us from our anxious fear – we will be grateful to:

  • Breathe
  • Be strong 
  • Take one day at a time
  • Sleep well
  • Have hope 
  • Peaceful thoughts 
  • Look forward to tomorrow

  1. The bible actually tells us – Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer, supplication and with thanksgiving, let our requests be made known and His peace will guard our minds and hearts………

    What more can we ask for to replace anxiety?
    Keep on writing.
