A book I recently began, My Age Of Anxiety, By Scott Stossel, is so timely while not about the current global pandemic, is certainly applicable.
And in our day in day out battles in life.
Last night I sent the person I care about a text…it said…
“…came across this book Saturday and have started digging in. The author has suffered from tremendous anxiety since childhood, yet been very successful.
He believes that we create our greatest anxiety not by what something is, but, what we think something is.
In his sub-title the author has hope, my favorite word, between the words, fear and dread.
So that got me thinking, which led me to the following Biblical verse, which is very familiar.
‘Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable – if there is any moral excellence and if there is anything good – dwell on these things.’
The Apostle Paul thought it so important that he saved it for last by introducing it with, Finally…
If there is ANYTHING good – dwell, or think on that.”
End of text.
We should all, at this time, dwell on that.
