The Answer to Deep Anxiety

In case you wondered, it is not your job to fix everybody and everything.

It’s not your job to point out everybody else’s mistakes and errors or to correct their political view.

It’s not your job to carry around the burdens of every single person plus your own.

It is your job to trust God.

It’s not your job to carry around anger all the time.

Yes, there is a time for righteous anger, but the Bible says 1) in your anger, do not sin, and 2) don’t let the sun go down on your anger. Carrying around anger constantly is like playing with fire– eventually you or someone you love will get burned. Someone you did not intend to harm will get hurt.

The answer is always deep adoration of God. After all, He’s the only one with the real power to heal and unite and restore.
