Confronting the root of confusion and anxiety.

Over the past couple of months I have been on a very exciting journey learning about prayer, fasting and spiritual growth. I set out on the journey because I was aware that I was beginning to get a little lazy and complacent. I was shocked at my attitude to some things and knew I had to take a more active and intentional approach to my spiritual growth. I committed myself to listening to sermons on my way to work, reading my Bible and daily guides and looking for God in all situations. What do i mean by looking for God? I started making a conscious effort to look at the power of God – remind myself that He is all powerful and that in no situation or period in my life should I feel hopeless. During this time of exploration I read a really powerful book. It showed me that we over complicate life. I started to understand that my focus was spread too wide which led me to feel stressed and this stress was leading to a state of defeat. I was starting to feel continually anxious and all because my focus and attention was in the wrong place. My only mission is to build on my relationship with God. To get to a state of absolute trust. after that, everything else falls into place.

Listen to my podcast on my thoughts around this here.

You can break out of feeling anxious and confused.
