Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)
The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
For my entire adult life, I have wrestled with anxiety. I worry incessantly. I have learned to settle my nerves by taking time to breath, to pray, and to hug my hubby if he’s near.
God quiets me with His love in those moments, and it’s wonderful to hear His, “Shhhhhhh.”
Whether we experience consistent or intermittent anxiety, each of us needs to be quieted at some point or another.
I encourage you to stop for a moment during each day; breathe deep, and let God quiet you.
Pray: I hear your,”Shhhhh.” Please help me to feel you arms holding me close. Amen.
