I understand because I also have anxiety. I am praying for you and hope you will do the same for me. I think, and don't quote me, but there is a reason for our anxiety. Maybe i'm wrong though because God also says we aren't suppose to be of fear, but I know God is listening and he loves us and that's all that really matters.You are lucky you don't understand..but thank you for your prayers.
If you have accepted Christ then it is not a punishment because Christ has wiped away your sin at the cross.Thank you godislove, and I agree..I think anxiety can be a number of things;
It could be a trial, sort of similar to job..
It could be a response to sin..( punishment)
I know what you mean...it can really seem that way at times. Your testimony has revealed a whole lot of reasons why you are experiencing anxiety...that's a lot of responsibility. I remember a really similar situation in my life once...I was the only person working...it was me my wife, three of my children, a son in law and two grandkids...the recession was so bad there was no getting work...I had only recovered from a heart attack about two months...the situation did not change for nearly three years...it seemed futile but we Matthew 6:33'd it...my wife and I learned to trust God at that time in a way we had not fathomed...we actually HAD TO trust in and rely on Him...Lastly, I don't know how to tell my mom... she has worries of her own...doesn't sleep well, hair thinning, has arthritis... the only worker in a household of 5..my dad doesn't work.
I'm looking for work..but what good is it if I can't function..
Life shouldn't be this difficult.
Oh sis, that is aweful...I cannot imagine how scared you all are...I will pray for her as well....please let us know when she is found...I just realized that I wrote to you as though you are a child, Pancakes, and that is wrong. Yes, you are the age of one of my grandchildren, but that gives me no right. What was I thinking. Regardless, I had the privilege of praying for you through much of the evening, and I will continue to do so.
I admit that I received word of a 6-yr-old child some distance from where I live who has disappeared, and I am praying vfor her as well. Her father said of her -- his words -- that she is a "brat." He says he is concerned, but in his other words, he was very mean. Others have called Jenise "sweet" and "trusting." I am so scared for this little girl. They didn't report her missing until she'd been gone for 10 hours. They are searching for her.
It MAY even help you with your problem to pray for Jenise (Janise?). She is so little, so helpless.
And I will continue to pray for you.
