A Cure for Anxiety

Every one is anxious about something. What is nagging at your soul? Maybe you are anxious about work, your children, or your messy house. The other day I was reading a familiar verse, Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”  How are you doing with that? I took out a index card and wrote down all the things I am anxious about. I was surprised how long the list was. Then I asked myself, “How many of these items am I praying about? Which of these am I taking to the Lord in prayer?” I realized I was not seeking God with regards to these things. I now have my card with all my anxious items I am taking to God in prayer. God wants us to be prayerful instead of anxious. So, I encourage you to do this exercise. Write down everything thing that has you anxious. Begin to take these to the Lord in prayer. It may not change your situation, but it will certainly change your attitude toward the situation.
