The Bible has a lot to say about anxiety. Jesus said, “Do not be anxious” (Matthew 6:25). Solomon said, “An anxious heart weighs a man down” (Proverbs 12:25). And Paul added, “Be anxious for nothing” (Philippians 4:6).
So what is the problem with anxiety? Why is it such a bad thing?
Author Amelia Aldao writes, “Anxiety makes us crave control. Anxiety makes it difficult to accept uncertainty.”
Indeed, anxiety is not your friend. We live in a crazy world that is filled with uncertainty. And we have to be okay with that.
Recovery Step: Pray this with me – “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
