Afraid of Being Alone?

Are you afraid of being alone? Does your relationship status, finances, health, or family cause you to be anxious and afraid? Take a look at an email I received today. Some of you may have read this before, but it is very profound and worth a second look.

“Recent scientific tests revealed something totally consistent with the Bible.  They studied fear and anxiety.  What they found was that it’s pretty impossible to be thankful and fearful at the same time.  If you’re giving thanks from your heart, you wont’ have anxiety or fear.  Thanksgiving is an antidote to fear and anxiety.  They don’t go together. 

If you’re living in fear and anxiety, you’re not going to be living in thanksgiving.  And if you’re living in thanksgiving, you’re going to have the power to overcome fear and anxiety.  So the Word of God, says, over and over again, “Do not fear.”  It also says, “give thanks in all things.”  The two go together. 

If you live a problem-based life, you’ll have anxiety.  but if you live a  blessing-based life, you’ll have peace and joy.  As it is written, perfect love casts out fear.  SO make it a daily habit and discipline, to spend time, not dwelling on any problem, but just on the blessing of God, and give thanks.  For it’s a lot better to live in blessing than in fear.”

{Overcoming Fear, Worry, and Anxiety: Becoming a Woman of Faith and Confidence}

Psalm 69:30

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
