Day 8: Anxious No More


Today I will be

ANXIOUS

about everything, in every circumstance.

I won't talk to GOD about what is bothering me.

I won't ask HIM to do anything about it.

I will continue to complain.

I will focus on whatever is false, unwholesome, wrong, impure, ugly, and unworthy,

And then I will be

ANXIOUS

about everything, in every circumstance.

Therefore I won't talk to GOD about what is bothering me.

I won't ask HIM to do anything about it.

I will continue to complain.

I will focus on whatever is false, unwholesome, wrong, impure, ugly, unworthy.

Hmm...

I guess I will always be

ANXIOUS.

My choice.

What are you anxious about?

How do you try to get rid of it?

What if I told you~

"DO NOT BE" anxious?

Do those three words carry the power to take away your anxiety?

Actually they bring more anxiety to me,

because it is so hard "not to be" in the midst of being

ANXIOUS..

But GOD

just doesn't tell us to

"DO NOT BE"

as HE desires to be part of the process.

What happens when we do it

HIS WAY?

Today

I will

NOT BE ANXIOUS

about anything, no matter the circumstance

Because

I will talk to GOD about what is bothering me.

I will ask HIM to do something about it.

I will thank HIM for all HE has done and for all who HE is.

I will focus on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable

Then

the PEACE OF GOD

that transcends all understanding

WILL

guard my heart & mind

in

CHRIST JESUS.

HIS PEACE overrides ANXIETY.

PEACE~

a gift from GOD.

PEACE~

with GOD, because of JESUS CHRIST~

that is beyond anything that you could ever imagine,

when it covers your ANXIOUS heart.

PEACE in the midst of a storm.

PEACE in the midst of pain.

PEACE in the midst of the unknown.

HIS PEACE

moves us

beyond

ANXIETY

when we choose to

take our eyes off of our

ANXIOUS SELF

&

instead fix them on the

ONE

who tells us to

DO NOT BE

so that

HE CAN BE

what we can't be.

Let's

fast

from the weight of

ANXIETY~

GOD'S WAY

&

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS

"about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD. And the peace of GOD, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—

if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. "

(Philippians 4:6-8)

What do you have to be anxious about now?
