5 Minute Life Coach - The Cure For An Anxious Heart
December 08, 2011

How has your week been? I know this is a busy time of year but I hope you are remembering to have FUN while keeping the momentum going.

I consider it an honour to serve you, help open your eyes to possibilities and call you up higher. I believe that God is calling us all to play a bigger game, to stretch our vision, reach out for more and step out in faith…to live an on purpose life rather than a mediocre one.

My aim is to give you the strategies, tools and the mindset you need for you to be the person God called you to be and do the works He called you to do.

Today's article shares simple ways to deal with anxiety!

Pay close attention – because this is where many people drop the ball – when you deal with anxieties as they arise, and face life with courage knowing that

nothing touches you that has not passed through the hands of your heavenly Father first, NOTHING!

Then life will take on a whole new perspective and you'll find reserves of courage that you weren't aware you had.

May the Son of Righteousness shine upon you. As rain refreshes dry parched land may the Spirit of God wash over you and bring you renewed hope.

Be blessed to be a blessing

I'm making progress with revising my How to Hear God book and have plans to offer it as a print book and on Kindle soon. God is good.

The Cure For an Anxious Heart

Thankfulness is a powerful spiritual weapon.

Few things will transform your life more than thanksgiving. Thessalonians 5:16-18 says,

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Notice that it says to give thanks in EVERY thing, that means in every situation. Why? Because God asks you to.

If you believe that God causes all things to work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose, then giving thanks in the midst of all things becomes easy.

When you obey God and do that, you rise above the circumstances and walking in faith, believing that God really will work all things together for good.

He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honours Me; and to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God"(Psalm 50:23)

Think about that for a moment.

It says that when you offer a sacrifice of thanksgviing you honour God. It also promises that when you line your life up with God's ways He will show you salvation.

Many Israelites died in the wilderness without ever reaching their Promised Land. Why? Because instead of continuing to trust God they grumbled and complained.

Grumbling and complaining

Have you ever noticed that people who grumble and complain tend to spend their lives going around in circles just like the Israelites? Grumbling and complaining robs you of God's blessing.

It takes faith to inherit God's promises and put yourself in the path of blessing. I strongly encourage you to decide now that you will put an end to complaining and choose instead to do things God's way and be thankful in all things.

It will transform your life and bring you closer to fulfilling your destiny with joy and peace.

Stop for a moment and think about how you might have been contributing to your current circumstances. What will you do instead?

When you begin your day by telling the Lord what you are thankful for and remember to be thankful throughout the day, you'll find it much easier to abide in God's presence.

You will be happier as a result, the people around you will benefit, and I'm sure you will find that life works better.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your mind."

When you start feeling anxious about things , talk to God and thank Him that He is working everything together for good. Encourage your heart and remind yourself of what the Lord has already done.

Thanksgiving will guard your heart, keep you peaceful in the midst of trials, help you to walk through life trusting God and open the door to blessing.

Is God calling you to write?

There is a no cost online class you don't want to miss if you have aspirations to write.

You can register here =>

If the time doesn't work for you, register anyway and listen to the replay.

Content creation is much easier than you think, especially when you use articles as your foundation. I learned how to write without agonizing over every sentence when I was in Jeff Herring's mentor program.

Jeff taught me how to write articles that people want to read and how to market those articles and repurpose the articles into other products.

If you've been struggling to write easily and quickly I recommend that you follow the steps that Jeff teaches in the online seminar...if you do there is no good reason why you can't leave the seminar with an article ready to use. Really!

Jeff makes content creation very doable. He is going to walk you through creating an article LIVE in the online class so you will know exactly what to do and how to do it.
