Everyday Anxiety Attack
I have struggled with anxiety attacks and crazy anxious thoughts and the physical response my body has to fear can feel immobilizing. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. By God’s grace He gives courage to go forward despite it.
It’s only by admitting our weakness and humbly changing direction toward God that we are repaired by God’s generous love. In his holiness He must punish sin because sin separates us from God but in His love He cannot punish us. Christ proclaims our infinite worth and His eternal love for us aside from any human standard, even our own. We will live forever in a community of equals – saints and sinners all, saved by grace. Remember Romans 8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.” Our temporary imperfection is a quality which actually connects us to others rather than a secret shame which sets us apart. Becoming transparent and vulnerable will set you free with God’s grace and change you as well as other lives around you…everyday.
