“Do not be anxious about anything.” (Philippians 4:6)2

Life… wow is life crazy. Every time I say the word “wow” I think of it as a little prayer, a thank you prayer for what is happening in my life that I am so amazed by. Recently, I have found myself saying “wow” not for the things I used to, but instead for how much I have on my plate, how much I feel as if I am working myself to the bone – really for how much anxiety and stress goes into college. But I have this book that Vikki gave to me when I graduated that are 356 Daily Devotions, and there is a devotion in there that has really spoken to me lately. And that is to not be anxious about anything. I find myself constantly being anxious for the week to end, or for a work shift to be over, or to just pass that test in my really hard class. But all of this anxiety, I am letting get to me, and God says to hand it over to him. Be anxious about everything, but be anxious in him. Every little thing. Not just the big times when nothing is going right, and you’re so anxious about fixing it, including the little times. The Streams of Desert book says that we should develop and instinct to turn to him in these times “During those sleepless nights, we should speak to him, no matter how small they might be.” So this is my challenge to myself, to send all my anxiety to him, and let him speak to me on how to deal with it. With this I challenge you, how many times a day does your to-do list just seem to big, to hefty, and impossible to do, send it to God, and let him speak down to you and upon you with insight on how to get through even the worst and highest anxiety days.

Blessings to all,
Casey Bergeron
