Dear Anxiousness – The Church of Jesus Christ


Dear Anxiousness,

I get it. You want all of my focus. Each and every final drop. You want to speak to me and be with me every single second of every single day. Effectively, that is cute. And I’m flattered. But can a girl get some space?

Ever considering the fact that I met you back in my awkward higher college days, you haven’t left me alone. You are constantly displaying up uninvited, stealing the spotlight, having all dramatic for absolutely nothing. And I know you are applied to the simply persuaded, flimsy tiny girl who constantly gave in without having a fight. But, occasions have changed. And so have I.

Appear. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. You are straight up suffocating. Downright confusing. And 100 % consuming. And considering the fact that we’re (I’m) becoming truthful, I can ultimately say: I can do so a lot greater than you. So I’m cutting you off, after and for all. Sorry not sorry, we’re accomplished.

Here’s why. For 1, you are way as well heavy. I can not preserve carrying you about like a boulder on my back. It is a lot tougher to preserve my chin up with you bringing me down.

And two, you are just a seriously undesirable influence. When I’m about you, I do factors like: reside in panic about the future alternatively of focusing on the now, anxiety about factors I can not handle, overthink till my brain blows a fuse, and be concerned. Can not overlook the worrying. So. A lot. Worrying.

Oh, and here’s a point I could do without having: all that noise you have been creating up there. It is close to-not possible to hear the voice of the Lord (or any constructive believed for that matter) more than your blabbering tiny mouth. Seriously, not cool.

So I figured out a greater program to get via my days. Surprise! It has absolutely nothing to do with you.

Anxiousness, meet my God.

My God, who says, “Be anxious for absolutely nothing, but in every single point by prayer and supplication, let your requests be produced recognized unto God.”

My God, who says, “My peace I give unto you: not as the planet giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

My God, who tells me to cast all my cares on Him, since He cares for me. (In contrast to some persons, cough cough.)

Truth is, my God is so a lot much more highly effective than you. I’m not positive why I’ve provided you so a lot of myself, when seriously I should’ve provided it all up to Him. I really feel absolutely nothing but hope and assurance when I’m standing in His presence, and that is much more than I could ever say about you.

So this is it. Ultimately. Our tiny dance is accomplished. Anxiousness, you are out. My God is taking more than.
