There are times when anxiety grabs a hold on you and it squeezes the life out of you, what’s your next move?

Could this be a wake-up call that God is clearly trying to get your attention?

Psalms 119:29 says, “I am overcome with sorrow. Encourage me, as you have promised to do.”

During the day you can be distracted by the busyness of life. But in the quietness of the night you feel like a woman who is about to give birth, the pain is great. Sadness leaves you feeling naked and vulnerable.

The Psalmist David asked God in times when sadness overwhelmed him at nights to encourage him as He has promised to do. (Psalms 119:29)

2 Corinthians 12:10, “When I am weak, I am strong.”
When you start the healing journey, you must be selective of who gets your time. Everyone of us must go through seasons of distress and grief, but some people are not prepared to move out of the season.

You will never know how strong you are until you say to yourself, ‘Enough is enough. It may get lonely, but I’m going to trust God to keep me safe.’

So you take comfort in knowing that the Lord is your Helper in time of need, and you will not be afraid.

As the songwriter who nicely penned the words say, “I’ve lost faith in people who said they cared, in the time of my crisis they were never there. But in my disappointment, in my season of pain, one thing never wavered, one thing never changed. I have never lost my hope. I never lost my joy. I never lost my faith. But most of all, I never lost my praise. My praise’s still here.”

Friends, take joy in the journey even when it feels lonely and long. You will find strength in each leg of the journey knowing that Jesus is right there at your side, cheering you on.

Feelings are just like having visitors. Don’t allow them to overstay their welcome, they will invite more anxieties.
