3 Years Old!!

On August 29, 2011 this beautiful girl and her littermates were born. But they weren't born at my house they were born at New Holland Vet via c-section after the surgery I brought my first litter of puppies home to raise. And after months of reading books and pouring over the internet I thought I knew alot about raising puppies well boy was I in for a shock. They made me grow up really quick and gave me lots of experience and happiness and tears :). 

I knew I was going to keep one of the puppies and it took me weeks till I picked out Matilda and I am so happy I did I couldn't ask for a better dog, oh sure she has her quirks and makes me upset at times , but I wouldn't trade her for anything. She makes me smile at her antics and her very expressive face and I love how protective she is of me and her puppies. And I can't believe she turned 3 already where did the time go? Ok I am done being sappy :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATILDA!!!!!

Something that has been on my mind very heavily lately is this thing that people call anxiety and it is something I struggle and deal with on a daily basis. I actually have had an anxiety attack a couple of times in my life ,but until a couple of years ago until a very good friend pointed out and described what it was I never fully understood what that total out of control feeling really was. And once I knew what it was I could then work on how to control it and take care of it.

One of the key reasons people deal with anxiety is worry and worry comes from when we are focused on the world and since the world is full of sin and things going wrong we get scared and feel insecure. If all the people in the world (including me) would constantly trust God and know that he has a plan and a purpose for our lives ,and that he has us all in the palm of his hand we would no longer have the problem of worry and then our anxiety would fade away!!

Here is an article that was very helpful to me it goes over the points of dealing with worry and anxiety. Trust me I do not have this area in my life totally taken care of I still deal with it but learning to pray about it and trusting God with every aspect of my life (which is a day-to-day thing as well) has definitely helped!!

Overcoming Anxiety

Dealing with Anxiety and Worry


Do you often deal with anxiety? Are you consumed with worry? You can learn to manage these emotions by understanding what the Bible says about them. In this excerpt from his book, Truth Seeker - Straight Talk From The Bible, Warren Mueller studies the keys in God's Word to overcoming your struggles with anxiety and worry.

Anxiety (Worry)

Life is full of many concerns stemming from the absence of certainty and control over our future. While we can never be completely free from worry, the Bible shows us how to minimize worry and anxiety in our lives. Philippians 4:6-7 says do not worry about anything, but with prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests known to God and then the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Pray About Life's Worries

Believers are commanded to pray about life's worries. These prayers are to be more than requests for favorable answers. They are to include thanksgiving and praise along with the needs. Praying in this way reminds us of the many blessings God continually gives us whether we ask or not. This reminds us of God's great love for us and that He knows and does what is best for us.

A Sense of Security in Jesus

Worry is proportional to our sense of security. When life is going as planned and we feel safe in our life routines, then worries subside. Likewise, worry increases when we feel threatened, insecure or are overly focused on and committed to some result. 1 Peter 5:7 says cast your cares upon Jesus because He cares for you. The practice of believers is to take our worries to Jesus in prayer and leave them with Him. This reinforces our dependence on, and faith in Jesus.

Recognize a Wrong Focus

Worries increase when we become focused on the things of this world. Jesus said the treasures of this world are subject to decay and can be taken away but heavenly treasures are secure (Matthew 6:19). Therefore, set your priorities on God and not on money (Matthew 6:24). Man worries about such things as having food and clothes but is given life by God. God provides life, without which the concerns of life are meaningless.
Worry can cause ulcers and mental problems that can have destructive health effects that shorten life. No amount of worry will add even one hour to one's life (Matthew 6:27). Therefore, why worry? The Bible teaches that we should deal with each day's problems when they occur and not be obsessed with future concerns that may not happen (Matthew 6:34).

Focus on Jesus

In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus visits the house of the sisters Martha and Mary. Martha was busy with many details regarding making Jesus and his disciples comfortable. Mary, on the other hand, was sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to what he said. Martha complained to Jesus that Mary should be busy helping but Jesus told Martha that "…you are worried and anxious about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42)
What is this one thing that freed Mary from the business and worries experienced by her sister? Mary chose to focus on Jesus, listen to Him and ignore the immediate demands of hospitality. I do not believe that Mary was being irresponsible, rather she wanted to experience and learn from Jesus first and later, when He was done speaking, she would fulfill her duties. Mary had her priorities straight. Put God first and He will free us from worries and take care of the rest of our concerns.
