1.25.2022 – “What if?”

You know what?

Over the last couple of weeks, to be very honest, I have dipped into this “what if, what if” kind of thinking.

And these “what ifs” can so quickly spiral me into obsessive thinking, obsessive worrying

At times, thinking through the maizes of scenarios that these “what ifs” of fear want to lead me into has pulled me deep into anxiety.

And it’s kind of like I am having to be constantly pulled back into the present.

“What if this happens? But what if…

What if I don’t make the right decision? What if I do the wrong thing?”

My husband has been constantly reminding me,

“…don’t worry about that, just focus on the task at hand…”

I came across a video this morning…

It’s so spot on, and I wanted to share it for any one else who has to face this kind of thinking, especially within the new territories of life.

Thank You, Father. You rescue me from the spiral that anxiety and fear try to pull me into, and You bring me back into the present with YOU. 💝☀️ I’m learning to take this life one step at a time…
