There were so many areas of concern weighing on me recently that even my prayers were giving me an anxiety attack. So I did what I always do in these overwhelming situations, I simply said; “Lord, you know what’s going on in the lives of those I love. I’m laying all of these issues at your feet and I’m just going to thank-you for every blessing instead.”
For a few minutes I think I just said “thank-you” over and over again..and then I slowly started to visualize blessings in my life and express gratitude for every single one of them. My unease was slowly lifted and I was infused with that powerful peace that literally sweeps away fear.

“I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1
