To My Never Ending Anxiety God says Shalom / Peace.
Do you have a quiet spot where you can withdraw from the world around you? A place where the only sound you hear is your heart beating and the rush of wind coming out of your lungs.
A place where the sound of silence is deafening; a place not where you go to meet with God; but a place where God is always waiting patiently to greet you with open arms.
Jesus described this personal place as a prayer closet. A small place where we can be alone with God…a place of prayer. It is a chosen place where the image bearer of God goes to meet with the one whose image we are called to reflect to the world around us.
I have learned the best way to wait on Him is to Worship and Praise HIM for who He is. This lifts the clouds of anxiety and the SON shines again into my soul. Our prayer life when tied to our worship feeds our faith. Then when the answer comes the invisible God becomes real to me in a greater way.
He is the God who made you. He is the God who was broken for you. He is the God who cries tears over you. He is the God who patiently waits to be wanted by you. He whispers your name and says, “Why have you not returned to me?”
Yes true peace is resting within the protection of someone greater than you. Go find your quiet place, call on HIS name, He will hear you. Then wait quietly…it will be worth it. He will answer you and when you receive your answer be still and know that HE is GOD.
