    Talk to GOD!!!!

    There is no question that anxiety and anxiety disorders are in fact painful, and yet very natural occurrences in life. Unfortunately, they rob many of their joy, peace of mind, and basic everyday living. I have been dealing with anxiety for over ten years, and let me just say, it has not been a walk in the park.

    My bouts with anxiety- specifically the tasks of trying to face them head on, has in many instances swept me into a whirlwind of emotions. For a great deal of my life, I have either lived it in doubt or uncontrollable fear. But it was when I discovered the power of prayer that my life begin to change. I too in the past have taken medication, and have even taken part in some therapy. And let me just say, that both of these resources were very necessay solutions in dealing with my anxiety; but I found that what helped me most of all was when I prayed to GOD.

    I encourage everyone who may be dealing with the pain of anxiety and anxiety disorders to just stay in constant communication with GOD. And with whatever methods that you are taking to counteract anxiety, please include prayer as way to also fight.

    Everyday for me is still an ongoing challenge, but I know that nothing is ever done in vain. And so once again, I encourage everyone in this community to discover the power of prayer. Prayer really HELPS!!!!!
