🕊️ TACKLING WORRY WITH REST

🕊️Mondays have always been a bit of a ‘Mayday’ in my schedule. The bulk of my online work is done, the week’s schedule laid out, and worry can move into the forefront of my mind if I don’t keep it in check.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🕊️When I need to tame worry or anxiety, I go to a quiet place (aka my sofa) and sit, and let myself sink down as I physically begin to rest.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🕊️Once my body starts to relax, then I open my Bible, and take in 3 verses which have helped me over & over & over again, as the passage reminds me to lay ‘it’ (aka worry, stress, anxiety, frustration…) at His feet and begin to rest in Him again.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🕊️As I spiritually align myself in His Presence, His peace begins to soak into my mind. The reminder that He is good, is in control, and is with me calms my fretfulness, as it elevates my hope.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🕊️If you too have a day (or two, or three…) where you need to raise a Mayday cry, add these verses to your prayer tool belt. I have them posted where I can easily see them, and be reminded to start praying when I need to do so. And so doing, I put my faith into action in the moment, and can rest – knowing He’s got me.

“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”

(Philippians 4:6-9 MSG)
