Overcoming hardships

“Cast all your anxiety on him because┬áhe cares for you.┬áStay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

Getting stuck in the what if’s

How come it is so easy for us to get stuck in the what if’s of life. Why does constantly getting stuck in the what if’s cause so much anxiety and stress? I’ve noticed a lot lately that my focus has been in other places rather than focused on God because I’m so stuck in…

Stress

In contemporary society it is so easy for us as christians to fall into pleasing people rather than pleasing the wonderful God we serve. I’ve been thinking a lot about what constitutes worship in gods eyes. It is often overlooked how everything we do is considered worship of god, whether it be who we let…

Feeling drained…

I’ve never really stopped and thought about it before this week but living with anxiety is exhausting. Finding a balance between focusing on myself and helping others has really become challenging. It’s so crazy to me how god works in putting certain things on our minds at certain times. I’ve learned a lot about myself…

Hurricanes of Emotion

We take our shame and guilt and give it to Jesus to grow in love with Jesus everyday. This is definitely something I’ve been struggling with lately. To be honest I haven’t been taking my struggles to god lately I’ve been trying to cope on my own with anxiety, feeling alone and just struggling in…

Coping with anxiety

Anxiety is definitely a weird thing. I felt really anxious tonight about going to my neighbors house tonight but I went anyway. Just had a feeling that I can’t describe, as in feeling like something awkward was going to happen. Little did I know that was going to come true. I don’t know what it…

Routine

Why is it so easy for us to fall out of routine but getting back into it is another story? It’s easy for us to get into the habit of reading our bibles daily but when you fall out its so hard to get back into it. The same is true with anything. I know…

Coping

One of the hardest things for me to do whether it be with grief or anxiety or stress is to cope. I tend to push my feelings down until I can’t handle it anymore. Not the best coping mechanism but hey it works for a while. I know it’s not healthy for me to do…

Baby Steps

One thing I’ve always struggled with is knowing when to take time to myself or for myself. Whether that be through expressing my emotions or confronting my anxiety it’s just challenging for me to step back and focus on myself. But, today I did just that, I took time to write out a prayer for…

Anxiety lessons

The last few weeks I’ve learned a lot about anxiety and how to cope, whether it be family talking about you when your not around, anxiety over upcoming things and just planning our what could go wrong and then there’s the anxiety of feeling like you’re doing something good for you but others think otherwise….
