When we experience anxiety, our fears and worries often hinder our ability to make decisions.
Lauren Lawson suffers from anxiety disorder, and she knows first hand how challenging it can be to move toward a goal without setting off her anxiety. "My therapist once wrote a big “X” over the words what if on a piece of paper. Apparently, I had used the phrase what if so many times that she felt the need to physically show me how these two words were keeping me from moving toward any goals, let alone a single goal."
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~Phililppians 4:6-7 In the battle against daily anxiety, seek out small acts of faith we can turn to: Surrender Novena; Rosary & Divine Mercy Chaplet; Offer up prayers for others; Remember God's love for you.
