Psalms 29:11 The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.
I got saved when I was just 9...and along the way I dedicate my life to God several times... trying to live right along the way... but somehow I was still missing out on God's gifts of strength and peace. I suffered anxiety and panic attacks. I did handle stress good at all. Then my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas in 2009... I started reading it every morning and praying... and I got stronger and stronger and less anxious... now I pretty much just don't worry. I feel pretty strong too. What I learned that I never knew before is that as a Christian I had to do my part go get to know God. I had to read His word so I could learn His wisdom and what He wanted for my life... I had to be in prayer talking with and listening to God.... not pray at God. To truly have salvation I had to have a relationship with God. Reading my Bible each morning... praying and talking to God each day... and throughout the day... asking God for guidance...taking the road less traveled ...now that has made all the difference.
