“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.”
- Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything? For me that is a daily struggle as I struggle with anxiety disorder diagnosed a few years ago.
My mind's natural tendency to be anxious about many things collides with the word of God to not be anxious about anything at all. I struggled with the idea of coming to God about everything as the word instructs us to do. What can the Lord do about me being so filled with anxiety I struggle to do daily things or even to write this blog?
However, these past few days I have been putting this scripture to practice and the peace of God has been ruling my mind and heart as I lean on him and not my own understanding! I sing this song and meditate and it fills my heart with joy because I know the Lord is bringing healing to my mind as I live in him. When I face anxiety provoking situations I tend to panic and become distraught but God has provided a way out for me and the Holy spit brings this very scripture to my remembrance daily and one by one I tackle the giants in my life through prayer and supplication making my needs known to God who loves me and continues to make my path straight as I walk up rightly be for him.
Psalms 23:1-4 is my testimony!
"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. he makes me lie down in Green Pastures he leads me beside Quiet Waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right path for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the darkest Valley, I will fear no evil for you are with me your rod and your staff they comfort me."
