After 100 posts, I needed some rest :). So after a long break, here we go…
Anxiety and worry are greatest enemies of peace. Having the inner peace can be destroyed by these two twin sisters. When I talk to different people, I come across many people who have lost their peace. Losing our peace starts in our mind. Always thinking what others may think about us is one way to stay anxious. Another way would be to fear about the future and worry about the past. So how do you come out of this anxious and worrying thought?
You cannot come out of aniouxs thoughts by thinking more on the problem. The more you focus on the problem which is imaginary most of the time, the more anxious you get.
One thing that I have found helpful to do when I am anxious is to focus on the One who is in Control. Many times we are anxious because we feel out of control or someone else takes control our lives. Isaiah 26:3 is a pill to regain peace. It says, You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
So when you are anxious you need to remember two things:
• Trust God
• Fix your thoughts on Him. (Meditate His word, Pray…)
Anxiety attacked is a very good book if you need to read more on this topic.
