Victory – Why are you anxious?

Why are you anxious?

What has stolen your peace? What causes you to suffer anxiety? What’s upsetting you? What loved one is troubling you? Has the climate of hatred, anger and fear in society sucked you into its grip? When the politics of your nation make you feel anxious, how often do you complain or fight those who think differently than you? What about the terrible abuses that have been done by perpetrator priests and the cover-ups by Church hierarchy — what are you saying to others? Do your words and feelings reflect your faith in Christ?

Why are you anxious?

Jesus and his disciples came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. Her sister Mary sat at the Lord’s feet to listen to what he said. But Martha busied herself with all the preparations that had to be made. She came to Jesus and challenged him: “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

“Martha, Martha,” Jesus replied, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38-42)

The more worrisome things get, the more urgent it is to take time out to pray and read what God’s Word says about the problems and listen to what Jesus is telling you through his Holy Spirit.

Keep your eyes on Jesus, and keep your mind resting at the feet of Jesus, listening. Don’t get up and do anything until the peace he is offering has filled you.
