Jesus....The Cure For Our Anxiety "But the Lord answered and said to her, 'Martha, Martha you are worried and bothered about so many things;but only a few things are necessary, really only one, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her'" Luke 10:41,42 When we live with chronic illness and pain it is natural for us to be consumed by many frustrations and concerns. We worry about our finances, we may beconsumed with pain and wonder what is the point to it all and if the pain will ever end. We may even wonder at times why our loved ones stay with us...we feel guilty that others have to see us living in pain and we feel helpless that we have no control over ourselves. We may feel like a burden. Such thoughts about are self worth, but although natural, are lies. Lies that the devil plants in our mind. We are worthy to be loved. Although our mind plaguesus at times, God sent us His Free Gift of Love; Jesus. Yes, there are many frustrations that we bear. But we do not need to bear them alone. Jesus asksus to choose the one necessity which will hold us through any trial or storm. Chose the one ingredient which makes all others function in harmony. He asks us to choose Him. He is there for us and longs to take our burdens and frustrations. "Come to Meall you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn for Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29 NIV The same Jesus of the Bible is here today. He is alive and is only a call away."The angel said to the women,'Do not be afraid, for I know that you are lookingfor Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here;He has risen,just as He said. Comeand see the place where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples: He hasrisen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him." Matthew 28:5-7 NIV The same Jesus that appeared to the women and to the disciples is here today. He longs to fill our troubled hearts with His comfort and love. "Search me, O God and know my heart;test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way of everlasting."Psalm 139:24,25 NIV May God fill your anxious troubled heart with the peace of Christ and lead you in The Way of Everlasting.....Jesus.
