Anxiety-free life…

Last night at church, Pastor Jeff spoke from I Kings 19 about anxiety and worry.

I John 5: 1-5; Proverbs 12:25; (and others)…

God’s Word is a healer for anxiety.

Step out and live free.

He also encouraged us not to be ignorant of the devil’s devices:  The devil will not pat you on the back and he will not encourage you when you do something right.

He spoke about Adam and Eve, Elijah, Jonah and Paul to name a few who had issues.

He reminded us that generally there is a let-down after a BIG event.

He encouraged us to get out of funk and self-pity.

Like Elijah: eat, nap, eat more, nap again – and don’t forget to drink water.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but God delivers them out of them all!

At the end of service he shared 12 ways to have an anxiety free life…and sooo sorry, but I missed the source for the list.

1.  Admit anxiety can be known and managed.  Used examples:  David’s sin caused anxiety…the cure was repentance.  Whereas Elijah was in the cross-hairs of an evil woman because he took a stand for God.

2.  Recognize due to presence of choices, fear does not need to result in emotional paralysis.

3.  Learn to distinguish what you can and cannot control, then live accordingly.  Wisdom to know the difference.

4.  Recognize you alone are responsible for defining your own guidelines in life.  Draw lines and take a stand!

5.  Communicate your anger constructively and don’t let it fester inside.  Don’t get physical or weird with it.

6.  Drop idealistic wishes that hinder you from accepting reality.  Know and believe God for His will.

7.  Self-directed thoughts of insecurity are the result of wrong input, and they can be corrected.

8.  Learn to distinguish safe from unsafe people and choose only healthy patterns of relating.

9.  Drop the requirement of having a mask.  Let yourself be known.  Be real.  Drop the front…the church-face.  Honesty.

10.  Release yourself from stringent performance requirements and accept yourself for who you are.  Get comfy with your skin.

11.  Realize you can experience self-inflicted anxiety due to poor priorities.  Don’t procrastinate, face and deal with it.  Choose priorities that serve you best…figure out what matters most…Seek His Kingdom First!

12.  Know that each problem has some sort of resolution.  Let patience have it’s perfect work.  Double-minded is unstable in all it’s ways.  Commit yourself to being an overcomer…you are more than a conqueror!

:)

Good list…I plan on putting it somewhere for easy viewing when I’m dealing with an issue… “a check-up from the head up”

:)

He also shared that stress is when we embrace things outside of our control.

He reminded us of the Serenity Prayer – and – that we don’t have authority over other people’s free will, but we can pray, trust God, and invite Him in.

He encouraged us to meditate on the right things…and watch what you say out of your mouth.

During worship early on in the evening he shared:  Col 3 = keep seeking the things above, don’t quit!

Aaaahh

Resting Faith

James 1:3 “The testing of your faith produces patience.”

From Billy Graham

“Dwight L. Moody was fond of pointing out that there are three kinds of faith in Jesus Christ:

STRUGGLING FAITH, which is like a man floundering and fearful in deep water;

CLINGING FAITH, which is like a man hanging to the side of the boat;

and

RESTING FAITH, which finds a man safe inside the boat – strong and secure enough to reach out his hand to help someone else.

Notice each man had faith.

Each knew the boat was his only hope.

Only one had discovered he could actually be in the boat – where all he had to do was rest.

A faith that trusts Him totally.”

“LOVE” – the re-read…

Last week, I went through the books in my ‘permanent’ collection.  Ya know, these are the one’s not really open to public viewing…keepers, you don’t loan out…

yet that was exactly what I was thinking about doing!
I never cease to surprise myself.

God does that, I think.  It’s soooo nice having Him in your life.

These are the books from SLFC studies, friends, family…the ones you REALLY underline in and scribble all sorts of soul-notes in the margins… or crease edges of the pages…

I have less 20 books on this shelf… I’ve been reading books my WHOLE life.

So,

“LOVE” by Grace Ryerson Roos… only 27 pages, but juicy!

Read first time 10/01

and

just finished re-reading.

Good stuff.

I copied one whole chapter (the last)  for my Mom about keeping a SABBATH rest.  Something she feels God wants her to do on Sundays.  My Mom is one of the hardest workers I have ever seen…so this was awe-inspiring for my brother and I when she mentioned it one Sunday a few months ago.

The first chapter of the book is on LOVE, and it reminded me of my grateful journal.  Yet more intimate…more deep…methinks this is more what God wants when we fellowship with Him.

Here’s one from the book:  “I love You, because You always have the answers. I don’t always understand You, but You give me enough understanding to calm my heart and mind, and to exercise my faith that You are in control and peace flows over me.”

The  next chapter is on UNCONDITIONAL LOVE…rare thought for a human, but for God notsomuch.  I Cor. 13:4-8 is of course included (I have this in another blog entry or of course feel free to look it up with the Biblegateway link using whatever translation you so desire).  BUT the part that ‘sticks’ out: 

“The word, unconditional means without conditions…absolute. God’s love is not dependent on anything we do. God is LOVE, ABSOLUTE LOVE. This love is complete, entire, and not mixed with anything else. ” 

 It goes on to encourage us to love others…and to stop being critical.

“It is the office of the Holy Spirit to reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. All we do when we do the reproving is alienate the very people we are supposed to love unconditionally.” 

Nice concept eh?!?

“Only God can change hearts, relationships and circumstances. All our condemnations minister only death to the very thing we want to see come alive to God. Here it is where we must come into the REST OF FAITH, that acknowledges that GOD is GOD.”

Then a few chapters later, a prophesy about love:

“Tell My people that I love them.

That My love is not a  love of judgment

whereby I stand to condemn them at the first misstep:

Rather, My love is a compassionate love that remembers they are of dust!

Have they stumbled?

Have they fallen?

Have they acted unwisely and independent of Me and My Spirit?

STILL REMIND THEM:  I love them with a heart overflowing with understanding and mercy.

AND WILL INSTANTLY RESTORE THEM if they will but turn to Me.

I am not difficult to serve!
I am not an austere, self-righteous One!

NAY:  I long, I yearn after My own,

and would have them know for a certainty there is forgiveness with me!

There is a new beginning with Me!

There is love that plans for their eternal good

Yea, have they met a defeat?

Have they been overwhelmed?

Yea, I am Master of the situation,

and am ready to take charge and right the wrong things,

and bring blessing out of chaos!

Yea, tell them I am not a God with an upraised club, but I am THE GOD OF THE NAIL-SCARRED HAND!

Has disobedience brought about a great miscarriage of My eternal plans for them?

Remind them that I am still Master of all,

And if they will again turn to Me in humble contrition, I will do the impossible thing!

I will make defeat turn into victory…

I will cause the bitter fruit of shame to bring them strength.

AND they shall again abound to My Glory!

YEA! TELL THEM I AM WITH THEM TO DO THEM GOOD ALL THE DAYS OF THEIR LIVES!”

:)
The next year, 1967…another prophesy(not writing this one out, sorry)…yet it was the same message I heard while at prayer mountain 2001:

Fear not!

:)
Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not for I am with thee:

be not dismayed; for I am thy God!

I will strengthen thee;

Yea, I will help thee;

yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness”

Grateful Journal

As the summer was coming to an end, a book I was reading suggested having a journal where you wrote all the things you were grateful for…

then a boss gave all of us a journal and a pen.

:)
Nice.

So off I went.  It’s about half full.  I write to God about the big, the small, and all the things in between.  Sometimes I write for pages, and sometimes only a line.

I re-read it when I’m down, and it lifts me up…

Yet recently I’ve decided to stop journaling.

It reminds of the time (7 years ago) when I decided to stop watching TV regularly…it even ‘feels’ the same.  I’m actually excited.  I’m going to have a lot more time.  Just like before, I know it will fill with other things…

Now can you just imagine the time I would have if I gave up reading!!!

Ouch.

Not yet.

:)

I plan telling God what I’m grateful for instead of writing it.  I did that some before, but writing is easier for me than speaking…soooooo

on Confession

“Confession is simply agreeing with God that our acts were wrong…

We keep no secrets from God. Confession is not telling God what we did. He already knows.

How can God heal what we deny?”

A Faithful Father.

From Lucado (‘He Still Moves Stones’):

“To recognize God as Lord is to acknowledge that He is sovereign and supreme in the universe.  To accept Him as Savior is to accept His gift of salvation offered on the cross.  To regard Him as Father is to go a step further.  Ideally a father is the one in your life who provides and protects.  This is exactly what God has done.

Matt 6:25-34:  He has provided for your needs.

Ps 139:5: He has protected you from harm.

Eph 1:5:  He has adopted you.

I Jn 3:1:  He has given you His name.

God has proven Himself as a faithful Father.  Now it falls to us to be trusting children.”

Deuteronomy 32:4

“He is a faithful God who does no wrong, who is right and fair.”

I also like the “abba” verses:

  1. Mark 14:36
    And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
    Mark 14:35-37 (in Context) Mark 14 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Romans 8:15
    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
    Romans 8:14-16 (in Context) Romans 8 (Whole Chapter)
  3. Galatians 4:6
    And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
    Galatians 4:5-7 (in Context) Galatians 4 (Whole Chapter)

:)
I really like it that there are only three verses in the WHOLE BIBLE!
:)

Abba means:

an Aramaic word for father, used by Jesus and Paul to address God in a relation of personal intimacy.

Origin: < Aram abbā father]

Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1)
Based on the Random House Unabridged Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2006.

This Syriac or Chaldee word is found three times in the New Testament (Mark 14:36; Rom. 8:15; Gal. 4:6), and in each case is followed by its Greek equivalent, which is translated “father.” It is a term expressing warm affection and filial confidence. It has no perfect equivalent in our language.

Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary

:)
I’ve also heard it called “Papa”

aaahhh

God is so good.

Psalm 91:1

“Those who go to God Most High for safety will be protected by the Almighty.”

Why would He do this?

Because He’s your Father.
