Good morning.


Anxiety is a problem we all will deal with at one time or another. With the discovery of Omicron, the new Covid-19 variant, the anxiety levels have increased for many people.


Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?" (Matthew 6:25 RSV)


The Greek word for “Anxious” in this passage means “distracted.” It’s a word that refers to uncertainty. It feels like the mat has been pulled out from underneath us and we have no idea if we’re going to fall, how hard, in what direction, or onto what.


The word “anxious” is also translated as “worry” in the Bible. For many people, worry has become a way of life.


Circumstances don't automatically create anxiety. Anxiety occurs as a result of the way we respond to a problem or troubling situation.


Remember, God doesn’t set us up for anxiety. He is always at work to bring us to a place where we’ll trust Him more and receive more of His peace.


Trusting God implicitly is the way of peace. It's the road out of anxiety and worry.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
