Kudos to Frodo, Dipstick, CDC, Squatter, and Speedwalker for Pre-Run!
I was really dreading this workout after writing it down for my winkey. It got super quiet during the first EMOM and lots of breathing. I couldn’t decide if the rest was the Burpees or Thrusters!
For the last 5 minutes, I reviewed what’s been a struggle for me lately (actually all of my life): Anxiety.
“There is nothing more self- sabotaging and frustrating than being double-minded.
Now, in James 1, verse 3, James is suggesting that when we ask God for wisdom, we do so with confident and unwavering trust in Him. Still this can be applied to anything that we go to God for.
Because the truth is, you either trust in Him or you don’t.
Remember the ill woman who followed Jesus through the crowd (Mark 5:24)?
She reached out her hand thinking,
“If I could just touch his robe I will be healed.”
She didn’t say, I think I’ll be healed.
Or I hope I’ll be healed.
Or He’s healed all these other people but I don’t know if he’ll actually heal me.
She said, “I will be healed.”
And she did it; pressing in with full faith in the power of Christ.
Jesus says, “Your faith has healed you.” and she was instantly freed from her suffering.
He didn’t touch her. He didn’t say some eloquent prayer. (Not that I disregard any of these things).
But in this case, it was her unwavering faith and the 100% confidence of her recovery in the power of Christ that activated her healing.
I constantly worry about everything. If I’m alone or driving and I don’t have my mind preoccupied, worry, doubt, and anxiety creep in…all of these thoughts happen within a 15 min car ride:
“I was supposed to do this thing for my dad and I forgot, I wonder if he’s coming home today or tomorrow, maybe next week”
“What if my car won’t pull the camper correctly”
“Are these tires really the right ones or did I not research enough”
“Are the kids doing enough in homeschool?”
“I gotta get my kids working out more, eating better…but am I eating better”
“What if a competitor takes my account without me knowing it, should I have spoken to the other manager today? Maybe he’s planning to leave my company but do it secretly so I can’t even fix the situation”
“Should I turn around and go back?”
Squatter said he didn’t understand anxiety because he’s a rational person, but when he spoke with someone who has anxiety and tried to walk them through that specific situation, the person told him “I know it’s not a rational thought, but I can’t stop having anxiety about the possibility of the bad alternative happening”. I know I butchered that quote but you get the meaning behind it.
Squatter also quoted Philippians 4:6-7 by memory.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Others shared stories about how they have experienced others who have anxiety and encouraging them. It was a great 10 minute discussion that meant a lot to me to share and hopefully helped a brother know where to turn when they need help and freedom over worrying. Worry replaced by prayer equals the peace of God.
