Because I Forget

I need to be reminded of God's truth because I forget. I need to be reminded of God's truth because I listen to myself too much. I need to be reminded of God's truth because I am bombarded by so many other unbiblical messages all day long.  I need to reminded of God's truth because it is the only thing that gives me peace.

I need to be reminded that He is sovereign, he is in control, nothing takes Him by surprise and it is He who directs my path, He has a plan and a purpose. His ways are not my ways (thank goodness for that!)

I have been battling anxiety, mostly at night when all is quiet. Waiting is a difficult thing for me, the longer I have to wait the harder it seems to get. That's where the trust part comes in, that's why I need to be reminded of God's truth

I know O Lord, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps  Jeremiah 10:23

Good morning, Maryann!

I also need to be reminded frequently of God's truths. Praying you find comfort and peace, sweet friend, and the anxiety diminishes for you.

Good morning! As someone who has battled anxiety her whole life I can soo relate to this post. And of course you are soo right. The only thing that REALLY works well for me is scripture. Praying with you that your mind will settle into His peace, and that you will hear all is well soon. HUGS!!

Thank you so much for sharing this reminder; I needed it this morning. I pray that God and His love would become more real to you than ever before as you are comforted by His Word!! May His deepest blessings of peace and reassurance rest on you today and always!

Praying that you will find comfort for your anxiety.

I love this line: "because I listen to myself too much". I could have written that myself. :-(

This is one of my favorite posts that I have read so far this week. I understand your anxiety completely and battle it too.

I loved what you said. I, too, need to be reminded of God's truth for the same reasons that you listed.

It is always worse at night when it is quiet. I will be praying for you to feel the peace that passes understanding.
I will always need to be reminded of this over and over.

Oh AMEN, right there with you ...mine is because of different reasons. As I sat before Him this morning I felt He said..."you are missing the blessings of each day I am giving you because you are focusing on the "what ifs" that you are anxious about." I realized I was allowing Satan to steal from me the "now" because of the things I have taken to prayer I haven't released.

Thanks for confirming what was on my heart today and putting in words.
