I remember speaking on my Instagram stories to you all about my anxiety and how I deal with it daily. Some days it is absolutely crippling and other days its manageable. I know there are many of you that can relate to living with anxiety, which is why I am writing this post. Have you ever wondered why? Why am I feeling this way when I have everything I could want right here… my family is healthy and happy, why do I have this anxiety that something is going to happen. I think about things that honestly don’t even matter at this point in time.. why do I continue to do this to myself. When it gets this bad.. I stop and I just speak with God. I ask him these questions and I just feel his presence. I sit there and think about how he has never left my side, he’s always kept me and provided for me. When I sat there in my quiet time thinking and asking God these questions one word came to my mind…. GRATITUDE.
Gratitude… the definition of gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and return the kindness. Why do I continue to let the devil play mind games when my savior has never left my side. Why must I doubt the plans he has for me. Gratitude is the enemy of anxiety. God is ALWAYS faithful. His faithfulness shows us that there is nothing more important or more powerful. He continues to prove himself to us when he doesn’t have to. That is reckless love..
If you ever feel this way just know you’re not alone.. I’m here and Jesus is here for you! Let’s be thankful, let’s let gratitude drowned out our anxiety and fear.. and let’s love!
Love you guys!!
