Finding a Solution to Anxiety
July 27, 2020, 7:56 AM

Life can be filled with anxiety. We all have anxieties. We worry about so many things today. We worry about our jobs. We worry about money. We worry about our marriages. We worry about our children. We worry about the past, the present, and the future. We worry about our retirement. We even worry about our relationship with God.

What good does worry do? The simple answer is none – none whatsoever. The truth is that you generally can’t change what you worry about. All your worrying is wasted. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:25, “I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”

The real antidote to worry is simple: trust in God. God loves you. God is in control. God wants the best for you. You can trust Him with your life and with your fears. So why worry? Trust God instead!

An unanxious attitude comes from faith in the goodness of God. As we relax and rest in God’s perfect plan for our lives, we will find that worry and anxiety disappears in the light of His love.
