My daughter recently spent a couple of weeks away from home. It was different not having her around the house and her absence was especially noticed by our dog. He was anxious not having all of his family nearby and sought consolation from us until the family was reunited. There are many reasons that may cause us anxiety, but turning to or reuniting with God can help calm our souls!
When we feel anxious, we need to consider our relationship with God. God can bring us joy, but we have to be willing to call on Him and to allow Him into our lives. If we are moving away from God, He will not force us to move toward Him. However, our anxiety may remind us that we need to keep our eyes on Him. Once we look to God, then we can allow His love and joy to fill our hearts. We can allow God to take our hand and lead us through those anxious times!
Call on God and hold His hand as He leads you away from anxiety and toward His joy!
Thank You for Your love and for Your patience. Help me to hold on to You and to allow You to lead me through any anxious times. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
