Dear Anxiety

April 2, 2019

Dear anxiety,

 

Please take note of this warning, as I issue it with the full backing of my Lord and King.  You see, there is a discomfort in your presence that affects everything in my life, so take your presence and leave with it. 

 You may be thinking that I don't have the right nor the ability to command you in such a way, but the Word says that I do.  I read where I can "banish anxiety", and I can "cast all anxiety on the Lord."  You may not want to listen to me, but you must listen to the Word.  So get out.

 

What would fill your spot at the table?  Well, peace for one.  Peace that I cannot even understand enough to describe to you is already here to escort you to the door then take your place.  I would say I'm sorry, but I'm not...like at all actually.  I have no regret and no hesitation in kicking you out of my house.  

 

Now, don't think that I am naïve to believe that you will never come around again.  I know better.  But the same God who gives me authority to kick you to the curb now - well, He will not change between now and then.  And I choose to stay with Him.  

 

So listen closely so that you don't miss a word of this:  LEAVE NOW.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Child of God

 

Father, thank You that You keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, trusting in You.  I choose to trust You, and I choose to walk in Your peace.  Thank You for the authority to banish anxiety.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.
