â€œ[A]sk where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your soulsâ€
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 Godâ€™s grace is sufficient.
Anxiety causes you to panic;
Peace causes you to be still.
Anxiety shows you your lack;
Peace points you to Godâ€™s supply.
Anxiety warns of defeat and failure;
Peace proclaims Godâ€™s victory and success.
Anxiety causes you to strive;
Peace causes you to rest.
Anxiety says â€œYou will be carried away by the storm;â€
Peace says â€œYour anchor holds.â€
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 wonâ€™t make it;
Peace assures you, God will bring you through.
WORRYING DOES NOT TAKE AWAY TOMORROWâ€™S TROUBLESâ€”IT TAKES AWAY TODAYâ€™S PEACE.Â Like a rocking chairâ€”it gives you something to do but doesnâ€™t get you anywhere.
