Feeling stressed and anxious

Today, I felt something that i have not felt in a very long time.  This morning, i felt anxious.  Feeling anxious is something i battled with for a very long time.  As i grew older and my faith in Christ grew as well, the space were being anxious resided was replaced by the grace of God.  This morning (and last night), i found my heart racing a little faster and i even had a “gagging” reflex.  It was scarry in that being anxious is something i do not want to live in again.

As i contemplate why i feel like this, i realize that i have gotten a little to comfortable with life here on earth.  Being comfortable meant less time reading the word of God and talking to God.  Worrying comes when you do not remember that God is with you.  For just a split second, i forgot that and it was eating me inside.

God of everything or God of nothing

God cannot and will not be in just half of your life.  You cannot have God in your family life but when it comes to work/school, you live outside the boundaries.  The contradiction in the worlds will just eat you alive.

This is a subject i have strgguled with and still continue to struggle in.  Just because you are battling, that does not mean you are losing.  You lose when you just give up.  PJSLB

Waking up is God’s way of giving you another opportunity

Lately, I have been on a TobyMac steak here.  The quotes coming from them are just fitting for what we as Christians are going through on a day to day basis.

Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is an uncertain future, yet we have today.  Dont waste today and put off something that God may be placing in your heart.  Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.  Share the word of God to others.  Be compassionate and forgiving.  Love as Jesus loved you.  We can never make up for the past…lets make sure the current is where we live and where we let our actions speak.  Have a blessed day everyone.  PJSLB
