ANXIETY! I HATE IT!

I was filling up with gas last night and there was a police officer in the convenience store. Another police officer pulled up and came inside. Normally, I am glad to see police. The job they do is tough and with little thanks. I said, “Thank you and that I appreciated him”. He said he appreciated my support. That was nice. I paid for my gas and left.

Then there was this tremendous sense of ANXIETY that came over me. I had a very real sickness in the pit of my stomach. I HATE that feeling. Where does it come from? Why is it there? I took an acid reducing pill and a Benadryl tablet and went to sleep… zzzzz

So wise King Solomon, do you have an answer for insignificant me?

“Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life; don’t for a minute lose sight of them. They’ll keep your soul alive and well, they’ll keep you fit and attractive. You’ll travel safely, you’ll neither tire nor trip. You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry, you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep.

No need to panic over alarms or surprises, or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner, Because God will be right there with you; he’ll keep you safe and sound. ” ~Solomon 

It seems FORGETTING that God is right there with you, confidently knowing His presence and expecting His direct interaction in your life is the source of ANXIETY. I’ll do better next time. “Turn to God. Run from evil.” ~Solomon.

OK. I got it this time…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
