  1. Oh my gosh, you sound so much like me!! I have dealt with anxiety since I was a teen. I am not saying this is what you need, but I did end up using medication, which has helped a great deal. I have also constantly worked on my relationship with Jesus Christ. I don’t know what I would do without Him. I don’t know how anyone can go day to day without Christ and not be anxious! I will be praying for you, and put you in my prayer journal. God bless you. Jan

    1. Thank you Janene. 🙂
      I think sometimes medication can be a very useful tool. I’m glad it helped you. I’ll be praying for you as well. It’s good to meet you.

  2. Whenever there is nothing I can do about a situation, I can’t dwell in anxiety because it’s out of my hands. Knowing God will bring good from the situation helps. And I ask Jesus if there is truly anything I can do to make the situation better.

    1. Amen, that can be so hard to remember in the middle of something, but that’s why we have to practice before anxiety comes.

  3. I love this message because whether it is anxiety, guilt, shame, fear, or anything else. I agree it is dwelling in it is a problem. Many times we can take a thought captive, but it is allowing the problem to manifest itself within us that causes us the most trouble. The good news is Jesus never loves us any less because we struggle or more because we don’t struggle. Thank You for sharing!

    1. Amen, and that’s what I was trying to get across. That Jesus loves us whether or not we have a struggle. 🙂

  4. Boy can I ever relate to this! This is so practical and so beautiful. The part about Jesus holding my hand reminds me of the song In The Garden. I needed these words this week because I’m fighting a big anxiety inducer- successfully so far, but I’ve got all week to sit in limbo. I’m so grateful for your post

    1. Thank you for sharing, Valerie! I’ll be praying for you. I know those sit-and-wait times can be the worst. It’s what we imagine that really gets us more than most other things.

  5. What a wonderful distinction to be able to make – the difference between feeling anxiety, and giving in to anxiety. I tend to be a worrier until I remember to trust in God.
