I wish anxiety was as foreign to me as computer programming or nuclear physics.
Too often we allow anxiety to take a hold of our lives in a way causes us to lose our joy and be destroyed. The root of anxiety is one thing...Pride. Anxiety is often associated with fear. If you think about it this fear is from not trusting God which means you are essentially trusting yourself. See the pride in that. It's sad to think that we put ourselves in the very place that we don't want to be. It is by being humble that our souls are preserved, tranquility is found, and we are able to be patient under trials. Missing the mark on being humble? praise God that today is a new day. anxiety of what the future holds means a lack of trust in God's plans and pride that your plan is better than His. Not only does God " adorn the humble with salvation"(Psalm 149:4) but he also "leads the humble in what is right and teaches the humble his way" (Psalm 25:9). God's way is supreme and in fact that only way, so lets start trusting in it. God is the great physician and he alone can cure us of pride and anxiety.It only BY casting all our anxiety on him that we are healed. How can be be worshiping the Lord fully if our hearts are rooted in pride causing us anxiety? Humble yourself BY casting all your needs and desires on Him.

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness. If you will do this, He will provide for you all the things you need in great abundance! If you will do this, He will exalt you at the proper time. If you will do this, all your anxiety will be cast on Him. God wants this for you because He cares deeply for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
