Our minds are filled with so many different, natural chemicals.
We are all probably most familiar with adrenaline, that burst of energy we get when it is fight or flight time.
Whether it’s seeing some strange bug or getting into a confrontation with another person, we have built into our systems chemicals that cause us to react certain ways for a reason.
Only as we mature do we learn that those chemicals can be put into balance and we can still be in control to a certain degree.
For me, one of the chemicals that I seem to have an extra dose of is serotonin.
To my understanding the neurotransmitters in my brain shoot out neurons that are then suppose to dock and send the message to the rest of my body,
“Everything is going to be ok.”
What happens when they don’t dock correctly and that message doesn’t get thru?!
You guessed it I’m sure. I get the sensation that things are not and will not be okay!
So, I do my part, take prescribed medication, meditate, work through situations by journaling and all that helps but I also have to tell myself, reassure myself, that God’s got this.
My God is bigger than it all. He created me, everything in me and everything around me.
Memorizing a few words of His and repeating them over & over helps me get through the fog that side blinds me & causes me to have such great anxiety in what ever circumstances I find myself in or anticipating.
Here is one portion of Scripture I hold onto for reassurance:
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:7-11 NIV
Out of all that just that 1st verse I repeat iver & over,
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 NIV
I flood my mind with God’s living water so I don’t drown in despair.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
