ANXIETY OR PEACE? (3)

.

.

“[A]sk where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls

(Jeremiah 6:16b).

 

 

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.
