Instructions to the Anxious

by Kevin Smead © 2018

Whene’er I have an anxious thought
And go to God in prayer,
I know I’m doing as He taught,
And casting all my care.
I have the promise of His aid
Which in His word He has displayed.

But when I seek to bear the load
In pride or unbelief,
I’m headed down a harmful road
And will find no relief.
This is a choice I’ve often made,
And what a heavy price I’ve paid.

Take it from one who knows it well �"
When the tempter’s voice,
Your troubles to your spirit tells,
You must make God your choice.
Upon the Lord, cast all your care,
And seek the peace that comes from prayer.

And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent
all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched
his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes,
I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up;
and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
Mark 5:25-29
