We all experience anxiety at some point in our lives. As women we try to juggle all the different roles in our life and at times feeling like we have fallen short. I can personally say it has happen to me on many occasions.
But as I study and meditate on God’s word, I have decided to “Pray More Worry Less”. There are many comforting verses in the Bible on anxiety. Consider 1 Peter 5:7 "casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you" My personal favorite is, Philippians 4:6-7, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
In closing, my prayer is that this will edify my sisters in Christ.
And if you are not a member of the body of Christ, my prayer is that your heart and mind will be open to seek what is needed for your Salvation, for the door is always open.
If you live in the Philadelphia area, I encourage you to contact the Mt. Airy church of Christ to study and learn about God. If you live in the Conway Arkansas area, I encourage you to contact the Northside church where I worship. We will be happy to assist you. And if you need information for church locations in other states, let us know. We will help you locate a church of Christ.
