Anxiety arises when there is a gap between what we believe and what we experience. Something happens outside of us which triggers anxiety within us. We ask, "What if?" We wonder, "Why?" Anxiety creates tension. If we do not figure out ways to proactively and reactively relieve the tension, we are more likely to break and cause damage to ourselves and others. God promises peace and joy to us, even when we are anxious. Peace does not solve the problem. Peace does not change our circumstances. Peace relieves the tension. We do not need to be anxious because God is anxious about us.
