I’ve Got A Case of Happiness
And there is no cure
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
Anxious: experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
Hope: looking forward to something, expecting it to happen.
There’s a saying, “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it.” If we’ve presented our requests to God, we should have nothing to be anxious about, and should be going about our days filled with hope, thanking Him for all he’s done, all he’s doing, and all He’s about to do.
Worry is fear, hope is faith. And there is no middle ground.
The world would have us believe anxiety is a medical condition, and I strongly disagree. The way we allow ourselves to deal with anxiety or worry can cause medical conditions, but in and of itself it is not a physical malady.
And a chorus of “Yes, but,” went up all over the world.
Yes, but, nothing! Worry is not something that comes upon us; it’s something we choose to do. If worry is a medical condition, then is happiness a medical condition? And I suppose they have a medicine and/or treatment to cure happiness? (They probably do.)
There is a remedy for worry (Jesus), but there is no cure.
