In general I can remain calm under pressure but on occasion I can turn into 'anxiety girl.' I probably watch the news and save it to my stored memory to recall it when appropriate. I think this side of me only comes out when it involves somebody close to me.
Not too long ago, before I went to bed my dad said he had to meet someone early the next morning. Well even though I'd never met this person, I had preconceived ideas about them. So I prayed that night and the next morning that my dad wouldn't get murdered. I thought about going with him and I'll give of myself on about any cause, but just don't ask it of me before 10am, okay? lol
When our dog, Jack, goes on one of exploring escapades, I can turn into anxiety girl until he returns. I think of how he might have been run over, caught somewhere by his collar, or stolen by research thieves.
All of this worry has no benefit. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything prayer and supplication. As the song says 'Let the peace of God reign.' We must turn over to Him what we cannot control and leave it to Him. If I'm going to leap somewhere in a single bound, let it be my voice to His ears.
