Feeling Anxious

I have started the last two classes associated with the Masters program that I am pursuing.  Just 8 more weeks and I will be finished.  I feel like a rat running around in a maze.  I know that I am close to the end and the closer I get to the cheese the more anxious and nervous I feel.  I am reminded of what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:6 – 7

Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

I am praying for the Lord to help me stay calm, cool and collected.  I am thankful that the Lord has strengthened me and guided me through my journey thus far.  I know that He can be trusted to continue to lead me, to continue to strengthen me and to continue to help me focus my thoughts and my efforts.  We serve a good and gracious and merciful God who seeks to give us a mind of tranquility and a heart of peace.

I know that whatever you face this week that may be trifling to you or that may cause you grief, if you turn it over to the Lord in prayer you will have the strength to do what you need to do.  And He will lessen your anxiety as you go on your way.  I pray that you will have the peace of God this week and that your heart and your mind will be peacefully and pleasantly centered on Christ Jesus.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
