As you travel life’s journey, you can take the road and receive anxiety relief.
There are many issues in our lives that cause us anxiety; issues such as our financial security, our relationships, and our future. We can become anxious about the unknown, anxious about the potential of what might happen, and anxious about what happened in the past and how that impacts our present. It’s one thing to be uneasy about a situation. But, if you do not address that feeling, it can grow into doubt and fear and rob you of the joy of life.
The problem with anxiety is that life presents situations that you cannot manipulate or fix. You cannot control every situation or every person in your life. You cannot twist every situation for your desired outcome. And you have to admit that there are times that you cannot control even your own emotions and feelings. When you are faced with issues that cause anxiety, you can try to follow your feelings and your own personal standards. But who is to say that your feelings are true or that your standards will bring the results that you want?
Life would be so much easier if he had someone to journey with us and to show us how to overcome our anxieties with perfect peace.
Central Assembly is here to tell you that person does exist! His name is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came to earth over two thousand years ago to show us the love of God the Father. He did not come to set up just another religion. He came to pay the penalty for our disobedience to God and to give us a new life. The Bible quotes Jesus as saying, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you … Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
See, Jesus is the only person in the history of the world who is qualified to make that statement. He knew what it was like to be in situations that were out of His control. He had close personal friends who thought that he was crazy, who walked out on Him, and who betrayed Him. If anyone in the world had reason … good reason to feel anxious, it was Jesus. But, He overcame anxiety and the feelings of not being in control by giving His Will over to God.
Jesus prayed to God the Father, “not my will be done but your will.” What Jesus did was to humble Himself and was obedient to God’s standards, and God’s will. And that is the key! The road to peace was not found by seeking control but by giving up control to God and following God’s direction.
As you travel life’s journey, you can take the road from anxiety to peace. Pray this prayer…
“Dear Jesus, I need help with anxiety please replace it with your perfect peace. Please forgive me of my sins and bring meaning and fulfillment into my life. I surrender my heart to you and ask that you take control of my life now. Thank you.”
