Antidote for Anxiety

There is a God.

And that reality
         makes all the difference.
God is in control,
        and I am not.

Stake your life on that truth
and follow Him fully into it.
God is faithful
       and always good,
even when we cannot see it
God redeems
              in incredible ways.

He is before all things,
and in Him
         all things hold together.

                         Colossians 1.17

Do not even be tempted by it.
To paraphrase 1 Corinthians 10.13:

No anxiety has overtaken you
that is not common to man.
God is faithful,
and He will not let you be anxious
                 beyond your strength,
but with the anxiety
will also provide
             the way of escape,
that you may be able
              to endure it.

Walk away from anxiety,
     be not distracted
              or enslaved by it.
God has greater things
     for you to tend.

 There is a God.
         And He is in control.
Abide in Him.
