The guys who had been beating up on the one guy stopped and started to slink away. I didn't know why until we turned and looked behind us. Out of the bar had come the biggest man I think I've ever seen. He was something like six feet, seven inches, maybe pounds, maybe 2 percent body fat. Just huge. We called him "Bubba" not to his face, but afterwards, when we talked about him.
Bubba didn't say a word. He just stood there and flexed. You could tell he was hoping they would try and have a go at him. All of a sudden my attitude was transformed, and I said to those guys, "You better not let us catch you coming around here again! I was ready to confront with resolve and firmness. I was released from anxiety and fear.
I was filled with boldness and confidence. I was ready to help somebody that needed helping.
I was ready to serve where serving was required. Because I had a great, big Bubba. I was convinced that I was not alone. I was safe. If I were convinced that Bubba were with me 24 hours a day, I would have a fundamentally different approach to my life. If I knew Bubba was behind me all day long, you wouldn't want to mess with me. I shall rest tonight knowing that he has already worked this all out on my behalf. I just started a new school, and the anxiety and stress I have is terrible.
Liz — Amen sister!
You just want to share it with anyone who will listen, right? Ignatius Loyola. LeeLee — Thanks for your openness and honesty about your work situation. God is in control, and we also have free will. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Pray that God convicts your heart to do the right thing.
It gives you peace that can only come from Him that so many people seek. This is such an encouraging post.. It was really the worst thing that i ever went through. Though it hard at first, i read bible verses and prayed and put my life wholly in His care. My favourite bible verse during those times and still is Psalms I just really wanted to share that. May the Lord bless us all.
Thank you for the wonderful scriptures. I, myself, have been battling this sickness off and on for years. I went off my meds over 2 years ago but the past few months have been a real struggle for me. My Dr. I too can only pray and hope I can beat this! Prayers for all you of too! I have honestly always been embarrassed to tell anyone of my anxiety but I thank you all for making me feel not alone! Please disregard the very very long comment I just submitted today.
I happened upon this website by accident and I read through a few of the posts and responded to them rather quickly. I responded without reading what you were asking people to submit at the the top of the page: When has the Lord helped you overcome worry? How did it turn out. Thank you! I have been worrying for quite some time.
Every relationship is unique. Description Product Details Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! Terry Wahls have been my touchstones throughout this journey and it is incredibly encouraging to see those in the medical field supporting their work. Share-A-Care Pu.. Lately I have come to believe that some of my fear is my intuition protecting me…. Certain kinds of wisdom arise only through seeing something happen repeatedly.
My husband and I recently reconciled after being separated for 6 months. He then left for work for 2 months and we rekindled and had a nice anniversary this past weekend. He is now at a bachelor party in Miami and I am freaking out with worry. He told me not to worry but I did the most horrible thing.
We are both very insecure because of the separation. I need him now to fix this situation and to allow me to turn to him during this time, trusting that God will bring my husband home and that we will get past this argument. As of right now, my husband is back to not speaking to me. Please Lord God be with him, protect him and watch over him.
And Lord please allow me to repent to you for not turning to you this past weekend as much as I should have. I feel horrible. Please Lord help save this marriage. Please allow me to trust in you and not lean on my own understanding. Please ease my worry. Please allow my husband and I to get back on solid ground before he comes home.
I want him to have a nice time and not blame me for things while he is gone. Please be with us.
Please allow this forgiveness. Please father.
It is am and after not being able to sleep due to great anxiety and fear over everything that seems to come to mind I arose and came out to my couch and opened my bible and began reading the bible and prayed that The Lord would deliver me from my anxiety, worry, and fear that I deal with daily and now has come to a point where it effects every part of my day and my health.
I think I am and pray and ask God to help me trust Him more but I am still struggling. I believe there is power in prayer so I ask for your prayer that I may overcome this thru Jesus Christ who gives me strength. I want to be free from this once and for all. Thank you for your words above and the scripture and references that I can meditate on.
I know I am not alone in this and pray for all who struggle daily with the same thing and pray they will be set free from this terrible sickness. God bless! Thank you for the verses!!! This site is amazing!! So glad i came across it.
I too now suffer from fear anxiety, and panic attacks. And since that day, i have been scared to drive because the fear of having another one while driving alone. Everytime i hear someone die, it puts fear in me too. I feel fear and anxiety comes from the enemy, and if he knows you are afraid of something, he will keep it in you mind and conscious.
But prayer and faith in God brings us through. I dont do half the things i use to do anymore like clubbing all the time, dating multiple guys, etc.. Or have the same friends like i use to. I just feel like God is working on me and testing my faith.. And i believe him. This too shall pass. About September of this year I was about 19 weeks pregnant,is when this panic attack occured and has caused ongoing constant anxiety, my fifth pregnancy.
I have a daughter Clara to turn 3 on the 21 of December, she is my only child I have. My very first I had back in , we gave him up for adoption as it seemed the best option at that time. Then in Jan. Got pregnant shortly after she passed but miscarried at 12 weeks. It started at 19 weeks pregnant and I took a cymbalta and it caused me to have a panic attack, before the pregnancy was on zoloft did fine with it So they tried that again did same panic attack, then recently because of the constant ongoing anxiety they tried lexapro and same panic attack with suicidal thoughts.
