FICTION: Everyone else lives a perfect Facebook life except you.
FACT: Anxiety is an inevitable companion for most people.
I am blessed to be on the women’s prayer team at our church, and nothing has become clearer to me than the fact that everyone has problems.
People may smile, post pictures online & give the impression that they have it all together, but behind that thin outer layer are other layers. Pain. Hurt. Depression. Problems of life. Some small ones. Many times big ones. Even the kind that make you not want to get out of bed.
But oh, aren’t you so glad that the above Scripture doesn’t leave us there. Alone. Weighted down with anxiety.
Gladness, it says, is in a good word.
Writers are all about words and word count. And the power of those words.
I pray that I may be used by the Lord to write and speak good words. Because there are many a day when I find myself in need of one as well.
What anxiety weighs you down today? Do you need a bit of gladness? I encourage you to look in the Word of God.
Then, give a good word to someone else. You never know the weight that they carry around and the difference that one word can make.
