On Fear and Anxiety

It’s taken me a year to hit publish on this post. One whole year. What if no one reads it? What if everyone reads it? What if I lose followers? What if, what if, what if. But, here we go y’all.

A little back story and a brief history on the anxious person that is me.

When I was in third grade, I pulled out all of my eyelashes because I couldn’t handle doing word problems.

When I was in ninth grade, I walked around the house carrying a Bible because I had chest pains and I thought I was going to die.

Every once in a while, at age 26, I can’t function as an adult. There are times when I can’t hold it together, when everything makes me anxious, and where I doubt literally everything.

Yep. Hi. This is the Allison that most people don’t get to meet. It’s kind of nerve wracking to admit that I’m a broken person. That I can’t do it all on my own. But do you know how exhausting it is to TRY to do everything on your own?

It’s so easy to get caught up in the broken areas of our life, but guess what? God doesn’t want us to stay broken. He promises to prosper us, not destroy us. How cool is that?! Not to mention, it’s EXHAUSTING.

“I’m no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God…You split the sea so I could walk right through it. My fears were drowned in perfect love. You rescued me.” – BETHEL

When you get caught up in the negative mindset that you can’t do anything, God is saying, you can do anything with Me. Trust Me.

Listen for His gentle whisper today and everyday.
