I feel really anxious these days. So many thoughts. So many fears. My brain is just going so fast. It is starting to get out of control. I had trouble falling asleep last night - that NEVER happens. Now I think I am starting to get sick over all my thoughts, and that is just too far.
I am stopping this bus before it leaves the station.
Get it together Emily.
One day at a time.
You know I am anxious when I whip this guy out---
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
This time thought my favorite part is the part in bold. I find something new in this verse every time I read it. God is good, and I know my 'worries and fears' are so minor compared to what other people have going on in their lives right now. Perspective and trust- that's what I'm aiming for.
