Word of the Day: Anxiety

Dec 25, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

ANXIETY – a strong desire sometimes mixed with doubt, fear, or uneasiness; fear or nervousness about what might happen

We can count on the Lord to provide for our needs, protect us from evil, guide us, and keep our souls secure for eternity. We may not be able to prevent anxious thoughts from entering our minds, but we can practice the right response. Philippians 4:6, 7 instructs us to “not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Scripture: 1 Peter 5:7

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”


“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”

— Epictetus
