Fear and anxiety are time wasters and energy drainers. It causes you to become less productive and keep you worrying about matters that are outside of your control, or worrying about possible scenarios that may never happen.
What I've learned in my battle with fighting fear and anxiety is that when I am most vulnerable, God protected me even more. His grace and mercy covered me in ways I could not imagine. Because we are in need of His love and nurturing in times of trouble, just like a newborn baby, He shelters us under His wings.
" Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Matthew 6:34 (MSG)
I have come to realize years later that fear and anxiety was a distraction that kept me on a wall seemingly impossible to come off guard. When you allow fear and worry to creep in, you become the watchman of your own life, putting your trust in your own abilities.
