Many of us deal with anxiety and all the methods we try don't really help. The anxiety keeps returning and so does our frustration.
Whether it's panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, fear, loss of joy or the physical symptoms of anxiety like fast-beating heart or dizziness...it keeps returning and we get frustrated and feel stuck
I know these feelings because I've been there. I dealt with intense anxiety, agoraphobia and didn't drive for over a year.
Just because we feel stuck, doesn't mean we are stuck.
Here's what brought me through my anxiety.
God could help me overcome all of these manifestations of anxiety.
The question is, how can we really leave anxiety behind?
Let's face it medication, diet changes and supplements aren't enough to leave anxiety behind....sure they can help but finding real long-lasting relief requires something more!
I tried diet changes, medication, meditation and supplements and my thoughts were still set to anxious. I needed to find long-lasting relief.
Did you know most anxiety-sufferers have issues with control and perfectionistic tendencies? If we can't make it turn out the way we want, or fix something, it causes unbelievable stress and tension.
So we think, overanalyze, and get stuck in obsessive thoughts.
What we forget is God has us in the palm of His hands. He has our whole life planned out. He is faithful.
As believers in Christ, we don't need to grasp control or worry about what the future holds.
The Anxious Woman Bundle is different in that it shows us how we can draw closer to God during anxious moments and replace anxiety with greater trust in Him.
Through using Victory Verses and Living in Victory workbook, we will learn how God can use anxiety to grow us in faith and dependence on Him, help us find joy in Him, and grow in confidence to live the life He has planned for us!
If we want to be victorious over anxiety, we need to be intentional. Sure, God could do the work in us, but we'd never learn to rely on Him and trust in His promises.
(Isaiah 26:3, NLT)
3 You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
In this verse, God tells us we need to keep our thoughts fixed on Him.
No medication, deep breathing or supplements will keep our minds intentionally on Christ.
We need to ask for His strength and power to help keep our minds on Him.
I FEEL your words, your understanding and compassion! I have struggled with anxiety/panic for 15 years although it was controlled. Over a year ago it controlled me; I was diagnosed with agoraphobia and haven’t left the house in over a year. I WANT to be ok, I WANT to live a life and not look at my 4 walls all day, every day…As you so expertly stated, “what’s even more challenging is a habit that others can’t see”! Wow, that hit home for me, as did all your thoughts about how this is hard work and God will help but I have to do more than just pray to Him. I get scared, defeated and I crumble into a place of giving up. I have read the self-help books but they don’t include God in the picture and that is why I appreciate and devour your emails! I need you and I need God! LOL. ~Sandy
Your workbook was so helpful in walking me through the Bible stories, asking myself questions and then using what I learned to apply these lessons to my own life. Thank you so much! ~Cassie
