Feeling scared or anxious? Sometimes we just have to be still and let go. Let go of our need to control and need to know and just be. Just BE STILL.
This can apply to times when we are at home being a busy busy Mom or wife. Times when we are at work being a working Mom grinding it out, times at the grocery store when you want to bite someone’s head off in line or on the freeway when you have just been cut off and you want to scream and curse. I could go on and on because we face a lot of trials and tribulations in our time on this crazy earth.
Recently I have been faced with a very challenging situation. One that I am still very much going through and don’t know when it will or how it will end. I don’t have all the answers but I do know one thing
I know God loves me. I know God wants the best for me. The bible tells me so. So just be still. Do not be afraid. Just breathe. Sometimes it is frightening but take a deep breath, breathe it all in. Breathe in all the peace because it is there. Talk to God, tell him your heart’s desire. Tell him your anxieties, fears and needs. Can you hear it? That sweet sound of silence. Can you hear him? He is there. The bible tells us so.
1. Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. Sometimes you have to wait in silence, hoping in him, in God alone.
2. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10. Don’t be afraid, God is with us!
3. “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3 . Trust in God in times of fear!
4. “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 . You will find peace when you are filled with anxiety. Pray and guard your heart and mind!
