It’s been such a fearful week for many.
The Paris massacre.
Jews stabbed in Tel Aviv.
Threats to the U.S.
I’ve had to stop watching the news.
Images of ISIS and their propaganda videos are wearing on this not normally anxious woman. I’ve never understood anxiety until the other night when the news images would not let my mind sleep.
It took be by surprise. But I knew that my anxious thoughts connected me with many kindred spirits also turning and tossing in bed.
So, I thought that if I couldn’t sleep last night, maybe somebody reading my blog couldn’t either. I offer these suggestions to help us keep the faith and find peace inside us during this tumultuous time.
- Don’t watch the news. (Keep up with the news by radio if you feel you need too. But don’t watch the images.)
- Light a candle and pray lifting your hands in worship (Psalm 63:4)
- Read, journal and pray scriptures of God’s faithfulness, protection, and goodness (Here’s a few to get us started.)
I’ve got your hand. I’m praying for you.
He’s in control.
