The Anxiety Club
By Demetria Brown Zinga


“How am I going to make it? What am I going to do? Where will we get the money?”

Do these questions sound familiar to you? Are they perhaps, questions you’ve asked recently?
Then welcome to the club. I call it the Anxiety Club.
We’ve all been part of that club at some point in our lives. There are moments when bills need to be paid, but the money is no where to be found. Situations occur in our lives, and we have to make really tough decisions that affect everyone involved. Sometimes we don’t see that light at the end of the tunnel and we feel trapped.
So I’ve asked, “What do I do? What do I say? How will I solve this problem?” and last but not least, “God, are you there?”

The Anxiety Club always has a way of making you pay your dues even before you decide to discontinue your membership. You’ll pay through your emotions, your health, and spiritual well being. Anxiety and worry causes undue stress, not to mention a myriad of other negative things it does to your nervous system. By joining the club, you could end up be an emotional wreck, and spiritually depleted of your joy, energy, and enthusiasm for serving Christ.

So you want out of the club? “But how do I get out?” you say. I mean, it’s one thing to wish yourself into a peaceful state of mind, but the reality of it is, you STILL have bills that are unpaid. Life still goes on.
Okay, true, but the words of our Savior sum it all up:
“Do not worry about our life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? …Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature…?”
In other words, worrying will not make the situation better. Here’s a GREAT, practical solution to the problems we face:
“Have faith in God…”, quoted by the Savior Himself.

Ready to join the Faith Club? Well, hop aboard. Don’t worry, there’s no penalty for signing up too late, and the only dues you’ll pay will be the commitment you make to trust Christ for everything you will ever need in life. And the good thing about it is, membership to the Faith Club offers GREAT benefits, like peace of mind, joy, security, and strength to face the hard times. Additional perks and bonuses are also available.

Now don’t you think it’s time to leave the Anxiety Club behind?
