Anxious ?

 

    We are indeed living in uncertain times. Many people are experiencing fearful and anxious thoughts just as a result of hearing the daily news. As Christians, this is an opportunity for us to shine in dark times. Our trust is not in ourselves, the government, or the wisdom of man. Our trust is in the One True God. However, this does not mean that Christians don’t feel afraid, worry or experience stress. WE DO. The difference is how we respond to these feelings. I think there are two ways we react when worry and stress creep into our lives.  One way is to pretend that it isn’t happening and all is well. Just put on a happy face and keep going. The other way to react is to be real, face the facts and go to the Lord with all your true feelings. I have lived both ways. I plead with you, please don’t deny your feelings but instead run to One who can help you. Then you will be able to share with others that a relationship with Jesus is the answer to all their worries.

      For much more on the subject of worry, please read the 4 part series → Worry Part 1
When I am afraid, I will trust in You.        Psalm 56:3  NKJV
 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest! Put on my yoke and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”        Matthew 11:28-30  J.B. Phillips
 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].        1 Peter 5:7  AMP

    Good afternoon Lynn,
    My name is Felicite , I talked to you outside a Starbucks store in Short pump the day before Easter 2017. I was very devastated by the fact that my two sons left home in difficult circumstances that day, and very lonely. I haven’t been able to reach out to you since, in fact I travelled overseas.
    i want to say thank you again for having paid attention to my grief that day. God is still working in my life and in my sons’ lives as in all of our lives I guess, He is working out resilience, patience , and real trust in my heart. I thank God for your ministry. I am still looking out for a church here , going around and considering. If I may , can I ask where you go to church ? I may explore there too before I make my mind, I am not settle yet, we moved here 5 months ago.
    Thanks again
    May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in Hope.
    Felicite
