Gratitude Challenge – November 3 – Thankful for Anxiety Relief

Here at Words of Encouragement



I am thankful we can find relief from anxiety by casting our cares on God. Anxiety is rampant today, which is not surprising in this world of constant turmoil and continuous bad news blasted at us from numerous sources, especially during this volatile election season. It’s essential to find a way to manage anxiety in a healthy manner. Doing so can improve our overall well-being, along with increasing our ability to be more productive when we’re not distracted or weighed down with anxiety and worry.



Onto today’s inspiration…

“Lord, thank You

that I can give myself up to be led by You…

I can go forth praising and at rest,

letting you manage me and my day.

Thank You that I can throw

the whole weight of my anxieties on You,

for I am Your personal concern.”

–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise” 



My reflections:


I’ve mentioned before that this is one of my favorite day’s devotions in this particular devotional book. It’s nice to know God can help me manage my time and be more productive if I let Him.  It’s also a relief to know I can cast my cares and anxieties on Him, because He can handle them better than I can!



So what are YOUR thoughts?


Have you ever considered relying on God for time management and anxiety reduction?


Do you have other strategies that help you relax, but also stay on task?
