Throughout my life I have always carried the burden of worry. By holding on to worry I thought that I was somehow preventing a negative situation from taking place. Worrying never changed any situation. It only caused me to develop a serious condition of anxiety.
Anxiety feels like you are stranded out in a blinding snowstorm unable to see your own footprints and unable to find safety. The icy winds of fear sometimes blow so fierce that it is almost impossible to catch your breath. After suffering for many years I desperately needed to rest. I asked God for help and a way to enter into rest.
I thought about all the times God had answered my prayers and carried me through my many snowstorms of fear. I began to write down all my answered prayers. Each morning I spend time in prayer with God and spend time meditating on the answered prayers.
Moment by moment, I am opening my heart to Godís trust and care. God is healing me from anxiety. My answered prayers are my footprints in the snow that lead directly to Godís heart. The door to Godís heart is always open. Inside His heart the fire of His precious love melts the icy winds of fear and doubt. Godís arms are always open to hold me and carry me through the snowstorms. His shoulder waits gently for me to lay my weary head and enter softly into Godís rest.
