Each of us struggles with some level of anxiety. Certain triggers seem to exasperate it at times, and yet many of us don’t know what to do when the onslaught begins. The issue is not if you will be anxious but what to do when you become anxious. It’s time to go the 2nd mile in answering anxiety.
While there is no simple answer for anxiety, God’s Word does give us the first step and that includes coming to him for help through prayer. It probably won’t be the last step, but it needs to be the first step. Relying on him for strength and direction will make all the other steps more effective. If you are struggling with anxiety, approaching God is your first step towards a solution.
