anxious

Monday, i woke up
stressed…
panicked…
anxious…
bad dreams had abruptly awoken me at 3am. trying to forget them, the next 3 hours were an attempted failure of sleep.
tossing…
turning…
worry covering the whole brain
like a fog.
it seemed the day would be shot before feet ever met floor that day.
what was the point of even getting up?
i trust God. i believe God. i walk in His truth. i walk in His love.
but the fog would not be shaken.
He beckoned me, as He had at 3am. “Come sit. Converse with Me. I AM the One who can help clear the fog.”
i finally relented, but there was not much time before the day would demand attention. even a short moment. spend time with the One.
One who cares. One who loves.
One who can break thru the loud screaming of defeat.

there is truth within.

i was feeling depressed about things that have happened.

i was concentrating & worrying & stressing about things that have not yet happened. things that might never happen.
anxious about the future.
forgetting everything that God has helped us come thru.

forgetting all the miracles. the blessings. the past. the present.

TRUTH: living in the present. at peace. satisfied. not worrying. confident.

Philippians 4:6NLT
“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about EVERYTHING. Tell God what you need & THANK HIM for ALL He’s done!”
Talk to Him.
Build your relationship with Him.
The stronger the relationship, the easier it is to entrust, be thankful, worry less about the things that have not yet come to be.

Psalm 37 NLT

Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong.

For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither.

Trust in the Lord & do good.

Then you will live safely in the land & prosper.

Take delight in the Lord & He will give you your hearts desires.

Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him & He will help you.

He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn & the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.

Be still in the presence of the Lord & wait patiently for Him to act.

Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop being angry! Turn from your rage!

Do not lose your temper – it only leads to harm.

For the wicked will be destroyed

but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land…

Today i prayed for those…
