I have some really bad news. My best isn’t good enough. This life is a continual process of proving that we cannot do it on our own.
There is only one answer to anxiety, stress, hypertension, fear, and trepidation about life.
When I refuse God’s ownership, the only way I can be a Christian is by haranguing self into order. This is anxiety!
If I make my fear a Custer’s Last Stand of anxiety against God, then yes, I’m setting myself up for the inevitable fall. It reveals my bitterness with Him.
So, if anxiety is unbelief in God's ability to live my life, what do I believe in?
Anxiety is fear but also control. And when we can't get control, the result is anger.
To “lean” is to go completely empty, looking for His filling. Coming with NO opinions, no thoughts and no strength.
The Lord is looking for an eradication of any fear, doubt, worries and anxiety. He wants me to live leaning.
When mind off-roading in anxiety, we'll surely drop into a ditch of LAW & GUILT. If anxiety is in the ascendance, you can guarantee that His peace in me is declining.
Anxiety is addictive, deadly and used by Satan to destroy its users. Like a soccer mom on meth, I have used adrenaline just to get my day done.
When I’m driving the stagecoach of my life by my will there are negative effects. So how do I live a life that is expedient and profitable?
The greatest potential damage of victims at the Las Vegas massacre isn't done by the bullets that fly through the air but something more sinister.
