Psalm 31:10 ” My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my afflictions, and my bones grow weak.”

No matter if our stress comes from internal or external sources, we can become overwhelmed by anxious hearts & thoughts to the point that it literally rules our life. But what good is it? Worrying is like getting on a treadmill and walking for 5 miles, but in the end, you’ve got a pounding heart & racing mind but you’ve gone nowhere. We are thus reminded in Psalm 73:26 that, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” That’s right, God & His Word are not only your strength, but the only solution to overwhelming anxiety & worry. We are to “Trust in the Lord with all our heart” …the fruit of that being God’s Presence, protection & peace.
