Do not be anxious.

April 19, 2011

I had a little bit of a panic attack tonight. One week from right now I will be done with my Property final, starting my preparation for Civ Pro on Thursday. Needless to say, I'm starting to panic. Everything I've done this entire semester rests upon the next 3 weeks. Everything. I just want to succeed. I just want to make everyone proud. I want to feel good about a job well done.

What if i fail? 
What if this is not what I'm supposed to do with my life? 
What if I'm not good enough? 

One week away and the nerves are here. The anxiety is here. I just want to do well. I just want to be proud of myself. So, in the midst of all this panic, I picked up the Bible I've had for 10 years and started paging through. There is so much hi-lighted in there that it makes it hard to decipher. But I found a sticky note on this page. It's such a good reminder. And it sets my heart at ease.
Philippians 4:4-9 - 
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
