Anxiety / Worry

anxietyanxietyAnxiety (or worry) is about a future event we do not think will go well. It is fear.

Most things we worry about never happen. But some of them are very likely to happen and that causes us stress. Here’s a little Christian anxiety counseling you can do on your own:

Lets begin by taking some deep breaanxietyths to calm down. Call upon Jesus to help you think clearly and to guide you.

Emergency Scripture: Matthew 6:25-34

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

 

And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

 

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

 

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Now let’s think. Take the anxiety to its extreme. Ask yourself “What is the worst thing that could happen?” Then, on a scale of one to ten, where would you place this extreme anxiety? (one being no consequences whatsoever and ten being,perhaps death). With the extreme anxiety ask yourself another question: “What is the first step I would take in solving this problem?” Then the next steps until you have a working solution.

Remember, the solution doesn’t have to be perfect. It does not even have to be that good. But, at least you have a solution in your pocket until you can get more information.
