An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up. Proverbs 12:25
The pandemic and the election have weighed us all down with anxiety. So here is a kind word from the Word to cheer us up.
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your love, O Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul. Psalm 94:18-19
This verse reminds me of the 1967 R&B song by Jackie Wilson: “Your love keeps lifting me (higher and higher)” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzDVaKRApcg
So — “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
