When Anxiety Attacks by Cassie Gotthardt
The world tells us to do more, be more, and have more. This road is an anxiety attack waiting to happen. Over the last few years I have had a growing problem with anxiety. Life always seems to be moving faster than I can physically and mentally handle. Some might say that this is a weakness, and even I have viewed it this way. When having an anxiety attack all you want to do is regain control. It can be frustrating and maddening, and I feel weak to overcome it.
God tells us when you are too weak I am strong. I am beginning to see that my weak spirit is what has always drawn me closer to my heavenly Father. My weakness makes me teachable. Mt weakness makes me rely on my relationship with God. My weakness makes me a better Christian. All I need to overcome my weakness is to focus on God instead of on myself. I am never going to get it together, but I can let God do it through me.
Prayer: Lord, I pray for all those people trying to keep it together and be strong, and for those on antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds. Let them feel your strength in their weakness. Let them be proud to be weak and learn to rest in you. Amen.
