Overcoming Anxiety With Thanksgiving 

Feeling thankful during a flash of anxiety sounds counter- initiative, but it’s exactly what allows us to embrace the truth (God is in control) grow in faith (I’m giving this to You, Lord. Please help me) and remain joyful in miserable moments.

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

Back then when I get worried about something, it would get me down a drainage, sinking in my worries and anxious state. Still in progress in conquering the spirit of worry because it gets to.me some times, but have learnt how to overcome it, by praying and leaving all to God to handle.

God works in our lives and does miracles. I have prayer about situations and have seen God change the outcome- prayed for help in times of tension and have seen God clear the air. I pray for my family, friends and see them receive breakthrough.

God is faithful and He wants the best for us. When we trust that, we don’t need to fear evil. Jeremiah 29:11 states that I know the plans I have for you, declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God offers the kind of healing that goes to the soul- it goes straight through us into the darkest of the dark.

For anyone who has ever dealt with stress, worry or anxiety, you know how tormenting it can be when it grabs hold. Without God in control, we are left feeling vulnerable and unprotected. Let Him be the one who grabs hold. I’m praying to die to myself day after day. Sometimes even moment after moment, so that God can prevail in my life.

We turn to Him and say “I need you Lord” He is there, holding us as we manage to put one foot in front of the other and make it through another day.

True peace, true courage and true love comes from God. The Lord Jesus Christ  died for us so that we would be set free from the evil of the world. Nothing can win against the one who conquered death. Keep in my mind.

  • Psalm 56:11 says, in God i trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
  • For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, Love and self- discipline. (II Timothy 1:7)
  • And if you’re still worried about what tomorrow could bring: therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Mathew 6:34)
