Anxiety should not always be thought of as a disease. Nor should we merely quote Scripture at one who claims to be anxious.
Anxiety is not a pleasant feeling but it can be constructive.
Anxiety often points us to an area in life in which we should invest.
Perhaps we have some unresolved hurt from our past or an apology that we owe to another.
Perhaps our anxiety is connected to our present situation and so we work on this situation and find comfort in God.
Perhaps our anxiety concerns our future and so we do all that we can to secure that goal but again we trust God. He holds our future in His hands.
Anxiety can be a friend rather than an enemy. Anxiety is a natural emotion for each of us at times. It does not have to be a dreaded emotion but a cause to inspire change.
