“[A]sk where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls”
In his blog (2-28-11), Roy Lessin wrote these jewels of truth:
Anxiety tells you that you are in a situation that is too big for God to handle;
Peace assures you that nothing is too hard for the Lord.
Anxiety assumes the worst will happen;
Peace affirms the best is yet to be.
Anxiety points you to your inadequacy;
Peace confirms that God’s grace is sufficient.
Anxiety causes you to panic;
Peace causes you to be still.
Anxiety shows you your lack;
Peace points you to God’s supply.
Anxiety warns of defeat and failure;
Peace proclaims God’s victory and success.
Anxiety causes you to strive;
Peace causes you to rest.
Anxiety says “You will be carried away by the storm;”
Peace says “Your anchor holds.”
Anxiety fills you with darkness;
Peace floods you with light.
Anxiety tells you to first seek a solution;
Peace tells you to first seek the Kingdom.
Anxiety tells you, you won’t make it;
Peace assures you, God will bring you through.
WORRYING DOES NOT TAKE AWAY TOMORROW’S TROUBLES—IT TAKES AWAY TODAY’S PEACE. Like a rocking chair—it gives you something to do but doesn’t get you anywhere.
