Don’t Let Tomorrow Give You Anxiety

The Bible says in Matthew 6:34 (NIV), “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Often times (more than we’d like to admit) we find ourselves worrying about tomorrow, about what it will (or might) bring, and even about how we are going to take action into accomplishing our goal, whether we will  accomplish them or not.

Isn’t the whole idea of making plans, and setting goals to be able to relax and focus on one thing at a time? Yeah… that’s what I thought too. Then why are we stewing on something that is not even in the pot?

The reason for this is called ‘anxiety’, now, you might say no kidding, perhaps you even think that’s not the reason. But, the truth is, that it is; anxiety is lack of faith and believe, first in our Creator and what He is able to do, secondly in yourself, and what He is able to do with you, through you and for you, and lastly in the power of the mind.

Woo… is this getting too real? Brace yourself, we have more. When we doubt God we deny our existence, we withdraw from ourselves, and give power to the enemy (yes, the devil). Because just like there is good in life there is also evil, who can confuse, and play mind games with us.

Isn’t amazing how people believe in evil, and the devil but don’t believe in grace and God? I think so too, but that’s a whole other topic and blog to talk about.

Back to the now… sometimes we sit and come up with a plan, write it down, and set up a goals, but  instead of achieving them we let the debris that come with the wind create a pile and blind us (keep us) from reaching our goals. Instead of cleaning the path we get used to the pieces and live happily ever anxious for ever because we don’t know how to move forward anymore (I mean who can see with dust in their eyes anyways?). Sad reality, human nature, part of life. You’re not alone though, I’ve been there, done that and come back sometimes.

Children are often scared imaginary creatures, of the dark, maybe monsters, and the boogie man, fear to this nonexistent creatures might be normal up until a certain age, and as a child develops a better notion of reality and falsehood this fear begins to stay behind them (they grow out of it), wouldn’t you want to be like a child all over again? But adults are scared of things that are easy to control, and of things that are out of their control as well.

As adults; we’ve been able to outlast those guys, but evolutionary psychologists will tell you that we’re still on constant lookout for the thing that wants to eat us next. We fail to notice, and to make assessments of the things we can control and the things that we cannot, we end up misjudging the situation by elaborating things, and making wrong theories. Thus, we begin to be scared like children all over again.

Forgetting our goals, our plans and our Creator. We are so centered on tomorrow “our goals” that we forget to live today.

You might think being scared is the only way I know how. But the reality is that you have more within you, you wasn’t created to be scared, to be anxious and to focus on the debris that you can’t see beyond it. You we’re created to focus on the beauty of life on the power of prayer and to have faith that allows you to trust, you are more, and you were created for more, allow yourself to see the truth, connect with yourself, try living again. Live how you know (yes how you to deserve), but don’t close the door to new opportunities or your ears to the words of wisdom.

If you don’t live in the present moment you will never get to live out your plans, achieve your goal, see your dreams come to pass, or see what you’re capable of.

Evaluate yourself, and see how you can put all the time that you give to being anxious to do good use in your life. Change the story!

Three decades of research shows that people with close friends are better able to survive divorces, job losses, and other traumatic events.

“Friendfluence” author Carlin Flora says that friendship has long been an evolutionary advantage.

“When we lived in groups where survival itself was difficult, you needed someone who would be guaranteed to throw you a lifeline,” she told Thought Catalog. “You can easily theorize that the notion of a best friend developed because we needed someone where we were number one on their list and they were number one on our list in those life and death situations.”

Also,

The Mayo Clinic says that exercise helps release anxiety in three main ways:

• Exercise releases brain chemicals associated with easing depression, like endorphins.

• Exercise enhances your immune system, lessening the chance of depression.

• Exercise increases body temperature, which helps people calm down.

And a pro tip: If you’re new to working out, psychologists say that “taking away the choice” of whether you’re going exercise is the key to sticking to a workout plan.

Embrace changes and begin to make them!

Along the path of my life I have focused on growing as an individual, studying and learning on how to help others and expanding my view of life. I studied Criminal Psychology and Christian Counseling concentrating in marriage and Family Relations at Liberty University Online. I am a Fibromyalgia Fighter who has focused on living the best that I can every day of my life, my goal is to inspired others to live their lives to their fullest God given potential. In life we are given one body, one brain, and one flesh- with many muscles and we can't concentrate in the ones that hurt and don't work on one single day, we have to think on how we can make them stronger with the ones that do operate well. Staying focus and moving while we can is my key to happiness, pausing when my heart tells me to and thinking outside my head to maintain a healthy spiritual, mental, and fitness balance that brings me peace & provides physical healing. I am a mother of three blessings; 2 boys and a girl, wife, and daughter of God, passionate about people and the way the brain works. Who is always looking for ways to make life easier and helping individuals see the truth that lies within them, I know there’s more for everyone, and that we are far more than whatever our current circumstances may be, remembering that they might determine our situations but don't predict our future. I enjoy working with people and assisting individuals in many different areas, whatever it takes to make someone’s life better and meeting their professional needs. “Go as high as you can, there’s a world that needs your help” - Denise Kilby
