Day 31- Anxiety Is Overrated

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. ~Philippians 4:6

Are you letting your worries and the what-ifs in life keep you from being all you can be?  Maybe the anxiety is keeping you from doing all that you can do for the kingdom of God.  Today after having recovered from the stress of the stress brought on by almost worrying myself out of a victory, I finally faced my fear and decided to trust God, but not until the very last minute.

I knew I needed my wisdom tooth removed for months.  It took me that long to do something about it, because I had perceived the pain and tragedy of a possible broken jaw or overdosing on anesthesia was more than my little fearful heart could handle.

How foolish I felt when after all that worry and self inflicted anxiety I breezed through it almost as easy as standing in line at the grocery store. My BP read 178/96 and to my doctor’s surprise I’d never been diagnosed with high blood pressure. The worry and stress brought my numbers almost off the charts in an otherwise healthy individual. Silly me, I should have just trusted God from the very beginning.

If your anxiety is keeping you from doing something that you know you should do.  Or perhaps you are avoiding an opportunity to serve simply because your imagination has been corrupted by fear.  Take it from me it is so much easier to trust God from the beginning.  Enjoy the victory, it has already been won, trust God today even if the giant in your life is as big as my wisdom tooth.
