An Open Letter to Anxiety

Dear Anxiety,

You had me waking up in the middle of the night. I felt tired and burned out. My eye lids were tired but I couldn’t catch a break because everything that I had to complete in the future had my mind racing. I began to question everything. I began to question how all this could be done in such little time. I got on my knees and began to pray. I asked God, “what’s wrong with me, why do I feel this way? Why is the devil after my peace of mind..?” Everything began to cave in. I began questioning friendships and the personal relationships I’ve invested in. How some I couldn’t do anymore because of their aggressive behavior and attitudes that don’t reflect who I am and who I want to be.. On my knees prayer hands just collapsed and my head on my mattress as my knees are no longer in perfect prayer position. I realized somewhere along the way I forgot the promises of God. And how he has nothing but good success planted in our lives. If we try to do it without him that is when it becomes overwhelming. In all things give thanks.. I forgot to remind myself of how he made a way before and how he will do the same this time around.. I forgot to breathe.. I feel more at ease and reassured. Thank you Lord..

Sincerely, your child in need… the one who almost lost his way.

  2. Hey there Deonte,
    I enjoyed reading this, you always come up with good stuff! I just wanted you to know that I have nominated you for a writing challenge.

    You have 5 questions to respond to and you’ll need to create 5 new ones to send on. I hope you don’t mind and that you have fun doing it, if you choose to take part.
