I read this devotional out of "Jesus Calling" this week and wanted to pass it on. I have dealt with anxiety since I was a little girl, like 7 or 8. I have no idea where it came from, but it was something I dealt with all through my growing up years. The worry became full blown panic attacks when I was in high school. I finally sought Christian counseling when I was 19 and I was able to get rid of the attacks. Thank you Jesus.
Over the years, I have slowly let fear and worry creep back into my life. I guess being a parent can do that to you, especially if you are prone to it like I have been. Let's call fear what it is, SIN. I know that and I know that it's from the enemy. So why can't I conquer it? Losing Jonathan escalated the anxiety big time. Being constantly dizzy also adds fuel to the fire. I don't want to be in this place. I know the Lord can bring healing to my heart and to my soul. I lay all this out here because I know I am not the only one, who deals with this. If you are struggling with fear and worry tonight, please know I am here with you. You are not alone. I hope this speaks to your heart. I for one find it comforting tonight.
