Sometimes anxiety hits you like a hard wave in the ocean.

If you’ve felt it you know exactly what I’m talking about…

The imagery I like to give is like when you literally are in an ocean and jumping over waves with your friends.

You just jumped one and start laughing/being silly with your friends – when suddenly an enormous, skin cutting, harsh wave hits you out of nowhere. You didn’t see it coming!  

It’s so violent that it pushes you back, and if hard enough, can cause you to fall back.

The hard wave hits you and then overwhelms you in the waters.  

That’s how I like to describe anxiety/panic attacks.

If you’re reading this and have struggled with this – I want to tell you this:

<3 YOU ARE NOT ALONE! <3

I had anxiety/panic attacks growing up – so much so that I would tell my Mom that I felt as if I was about to have a heart attack.

With panic attacks I began to hyperventilate; it was so bad.

Anxiety, on the other hand, is so easy to get. The smallest things in life can cause them. Since anxiety has the ability to rise up so unexpectedly, we must be aware of the biggest Helper in our time of need:

The Prince of Peace = Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 9:6

“And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

He is The Prince of Peace – therefore it is in His nature to give us peace.

There is no medicine, no therapy; absolutely nothing in the world that can compare to Him.

Does anxiety sometimes try and come again? Yes, especially when I am overwhelmed by so many tasks.

But, having the certainty of the One who is constant, near, and promises to never fail me is what settles and washes away the LIE of anxiety, panic, and fear.

Anxiety, panic, and fear may try and come… but Jesus stays the same forever.

And for you, my friend, He too promises to give you His peace.

Both now & forever-more…

“Peace I leave you, peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27

PRAYER FOR ANXIETY:

Father God, I come before you today and ask you to give me the peace You say You left us in John 14:27. I recognize my complete and total need for You. I surrender my anxiety, panic, and fear to You – right now. I ask You Father to overwhelm me with Your peace and give me freedom. I want to be free and have my entire trust in You. Help me & guide me with my tasks so that I have full assurance that the Prince of Peace is right next to me through it all.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, I pray,

Amen.

Again, let your peace not be dependent on tranquil, unchallenging circumstances. Let your peace be found in who JESUS is!

“…Prince of Peace…”

I’m praying for you, dear one.

Big hugs!!
