I do not occupy myself
with things
too great
and too marvelous
for me.

But I have calmed
and quieted
my soul.

How to Respond to Anxiety

When the cares 
of my heart 
are many,
your consolations
cheer my soul.

Psalm 94:19 ESV
Quote

What to Do When You Feel Anxious

Here [is the] game plan when you start to worry and obsess:

1. Name the pressures. You always worry about something. What things tend to hook you?… Anxieties feel endless and infinite – but they're finite and specific.
2. Identify how you express anxiety. How does anxiety show up in your life?
3. Ask yourself, Why am I anxious? Worry always has its inner logic… What do I want, need, crave, expect, demand, and lust after? Or what do I fear either losing or never getting? Identify the specific lust of the flesh. Anxious people “eagerly seek” the gifts more than the Giver. They bank treasure in the wrong place. What is preoccupying me, so that I pursue it with all my heart?
4. Which promise of Jesus [from the Bible] speaks to you most? Grab one promise and work with it.
5. Go to your Father. Talk to Him. Your Father cares about the things you worry about. Your Father knows what you need. Cast your cares upon Him, because He cares for you.
6. Give. Do and say something constructive. Care for someone else. Give to meet human need. In the darkest hole, when life is toughest, there’s always some way to give yourself away.
