Give Up Anxiety!

This past week was a real testing time for us. Our little home was in pretty much chaos with remodeling work being done. It required all our dining room things to be moved into the living room; the kitchen also was unusable. Had to wrap up and box all the treasures from the hutch. It was time consuming work. It was 5 days (that seemed like a month) before we were able to move back into the dining room and kitchen; that too was a big  job. . . and a test.

As I reassembled the cherished items in our hutch, I realized some of our most valued ones were missing. Valuable and precious gifts from dear friends, a little china doll, a figurine I loved (that was in my house ever since I was a child), were all missing. A sense of loss attacked my spirit, a sickness in my stomach and soul hung on me like moss on a tree as negative thoughts flew in. Were some boxes stolen by a worker?

In the middle of the night a fierce attack came. It was a battle; after tossing around a while, I prayed and totally gave the treasures to God. I "saw" them in His hands and asked Him to return them to me. Then peace came and I was able to sleep. The next morning I thanked God that the missing would be returned. Later in the day we discovered we had forgotten that at the 'beginning of the project' my husband put several containers in our daughter’s storage unit. Guess what? All our cherished items were there. My faithful Lord held them and then returned them.

In speaking to God about this, He showed me that when I was upset with a negative spirit hovering over my mind, I was not looking for people to love and not loving anyone, rather I was self consumed with my loss. Oh and isn’t that how the enemy wants us to be?

Thank You Lord that You were faithful, and when I turned it all over to You, the evil spirit had to leave; my mind was protected and freed, my faith and trust in You was renewed, and a loving spirit was once again in ascendency!
Your word says:
“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. (7) And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”(Phil. 4:6–7 Amp.)

It is so true! God’s promises are real and they are for all of us! Believe and cast Your burdens and anxieties upon the Lord! Be at peace. His faithfulness may surprise You!




Kenneth Hagin  says: “As long as you do not take this first step—as long as you fret and have anxiety—you are nullifying the effects of your prayer. You haven’t cast your burden on the Lord—you still have it!”
