I’m casting it away

At 9 years old, I didn’t expect to be on anxiety medicine, say I’ve went to therapy, got tested at Childrens Hospital, and got tests done, all for anxiety. Being so young and feeling like something is always wrong with you was a horrible feeling, all for anxiety.

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, your mind is always on the run, overthinking a little bit of everything, and feeling like your body is shutting down. Everyone has anxiety, its just the matter of how you cope with it.

In the bible there is a very popular verse about anxiety and the best way to cope with it..The best way to get find the real meaning of this verse is to dig into it..

-Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.- 1 Peter 5:7

Cast: To cast means to let go, send off, give away. When you cast a fishing rod, you are giving your bait away, and it is out of your hands.

All: Not a little bit, not just enough, but all. Every single piece, wholesome. Don’t leave anything behind.

Your: “Your” being you. The one who was thought about and created by Christ. The one who has their sins saved from Christ. The one who is loved by Christ. The one who receives forgiveness by Christ. The one who has a reason on earth.. You.

Anxiety: A feeling that is hard to cope with. Worrying too much. Overthinking things. Stressing about things you cannot control. Feeling at unease about situations. Unwanted thoughts.

On: A word that means in contact with something. On is a preposition that states how something lays.

Him: Him..Christ..Our Lord.. Our Father.. The One who IS love, the One who saves lives, the One who creates peace, the One who knows us inside to out, the One who forgives His children, the One who is the KING.

For: For is to help someone or something. Shows who is intended into something and why. A word that shows detail.

He: Same as him.. He..Christ..Our Lord.. Our Father.. The One who IS love, the One who saves lives, the One who creates peace, the One who knows us inside to out, the One who forgives His children, the One who is the best thing that has ever happened.

Cares: To care is to feel of concerned or interested. Looking after, provide the needs of.

For: For is to help someone or something. Shows who is intended into something and why. A word that shows detail.

You: Same as your..”You” being yourself. The one thought about and created by Christ. The one who has their sins saved from Christ. The one who is loved by Christ. The one who receives forgiveness by Christ. The one who has a reason on earth.. You.

Word for word, the verse gets me through my anxiety. You are so loved, you are so cared for. Allow God to take away your worrying, your stress, your unneeded thoughts. Give it to Him. Because He CARES and LOVES you. Peter didn’t say to give God our anxiety because we don’t have anywhere else to put it. He is telling us to give our anxieties to Him because God cares for us so much..so so much.

Now I’m 17, coming off my anxiety medicine, haven’t had a panic attack in a couple years (knock on wood), and am learning to trust God over myself. Did the medicine help my anxiety? Absolutely. Did the therapy help my anxiety? There is a chance.

However, God saved my anxiety.

Hi sunshine!!
I stared this blog in about January of 2016 to share His Word in a creative way. I was praying one night, and it kind of just came onto my heart.

I pray that The Lord may speak to you through me, I can only hope I can help you in your relationship with Christ.
