ANXIETY IS A RESULT OF ENVISIONING THE FUTURE WITHOUT ME. SO THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST WORRY IS STAYING IN COMMUNION WITH ME. WHEN YOU TURN YOUR THOUGHTS TOWARD ME, YOU CAN THINK MUCH MORE POSITIVELY. REMEMBER TO LISTEN, AS WELL AS TO SPEAK, MAKING YOUR THOUGHTS A DIALOGUE WITH ME.
IF YOU MUST CONSIDER UPCOMING EVENTS, FOLLOW THESE RULES: 1) DO NOT LINGER IN THE FUTURE, BECAUSE ANXIETIES SPROUT UP LIKE MUSHROOMS WHEN YOU WANDER THERE. 2) REMEMBER THE PROMISE OF MY CONTINUAL PRESENCE; INCLUDE ME IN ANY IMAGERY THAT COMES TO MIND. THIS MENTAL DISCIPLE DOES NOT COME EASILY, BECAUSE YOU ARE ACCUSTOMED TO BEING god OF YOUR FANTASIES. HOWEVER, THE REALITY OF MY PRESENCE WITH YOU, NOW AND FOREVERMORE, OUTSHINES ANY FANTASY YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE.
Confide in Jesus every day and let Him guide your steps in the direction He chooses. We must remember that our lives were planned before we were born and nothing happens by accident. We should not become anxious over what might happen in the future, take one hour, one day at a time and remember that when we reach tomorrow, remember, Jesus is already there. God bless you my friends.
