My friend, Elle, from Your Faith Journey, addressed anxiety in our zoom gathering. She challenged us to start studying the promises, not problems.
Since anxiety is rooted in fear, and since we are united in joy and love, fear has no place in our lives!
We have power to change the atmosphere because God uncomplicates things. He is a WAYMAKER.
Here are 3 tools Elle gave to help us on our faith journey:
1. Do not come into agreement with lies. Repent and receive God’s grace. Sit with Jesus.
2. Plan IN ADVANCE how I will interact in the moment when I face anxiety. Recite scripture. Sing praise.
3. Think on these things: What does God declare? Fasten your thoughts on what is authentic and real.
Remember: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
