The last few months I have had some personal problems involving work and my family. They have been wearing me down so much that I have not been sleeping well and felt really down in my spirit. I continued to pray and read God's word but hadn't been able to shake off the worry and anxiety that these problems have been causing. I didn't go to church for two weeks either and was avoiding phone calls and just wanting to be by myself.

I continued to do my bible reading plan each day and in Matthew I have been continually reading about the people Jesus healed and how he was so happy when they had faith and did not doubt. These scriptures spoke to me in my spirit and I realised that worrying and being anxious was like saying to Jesus, "I don't trust you to help me. I want to work it out my own way and in my time." When I realised this I prayed for forgiveness and I felt God say to me, "Happy are they who have no doubts about me." I felt his anointing upon me and since then I have just  been resting in him, trusting in him and believing in him to work all my problems out in his timing.

I feel so much closer to God and at peace since I have done this and know he wants me to trust him completely. I was able to share this with a friend who has just had his wife leave him and is feeling devastated by this turn of events. This was an encouragement to him too.
