Struggling with Anxiety

by adustyframe ~ February 3rd, 2014

Several years ago, I shared a story about a family that I used to babysit for. The parents went away for the weekend and were killed in a motorcycle accident.

Here is that post in case you missed it.

When James was a baby, I hated to go anywhere without him. I would be afraid to leave him in case something happened to us.

I got over that and didn’t even really remember that it had been something I dealt with.

Now with baby Nathan, it’s rearing it’s ugly head again.

Lee took me out for dinner on Saturday, and we left the boys with a friend. We didn’t even leave town but all afternoon, I had that feeling twisting my heart that if something happened the baby wouldn’t even know that we loved him!

I told Lee and he said I should just get over it! Ha.

You can pray for me! I don’t want to live gripped in fear again. I know God would take care of our children should something happen and I’m also confident that people would make sure the baby knows how much we love him.

I need to quote 1 Peter 5:7 to myself over and over!

“Casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you.”

    I rarely leave my boys with anyone. And never ever for an overnight. I’m not sure if that’s anxiety or caution.

    Well, I know my feelings were definitely anxiety and not caution ;0 it was fully on crazy freaking out….

    I am the same way. :/

    When I was a single mom, and my oldest had to be in daycare while I taught, I would not allow him to go on “field trips”–the thought just gave me anxiety. 😉
