Posts Tagged ‘neuroticism’

Sometimes, I think I’m the most neurotic creature in the world. Other times, I know it to be true. I wonder at times if it is a result of a lack of faith, somewhat akin to anxiety, but it’s not as if i constantly worry about things. It’s more that there are some things that I can’t throw off very easily, and they come back to pursue me.

Knowing this, I’ve been trying to cast my burdens onto Christ. This doesn’t necessarily make me feel better, but it does have a sense of rightness, a putting on of dependence to someone who is worthwhile and able to carry them far better than I ever could. Yes, this is an admission that I need something outside of myself. And by admitting this, I find my weaknesses swallowed up in the greatness of Christ. There are many flaws about me, but none that he cannot change or use.

And then I have to think, hey, you know… there are a lot of good things about me. I know I am strong and intelligent, I know that I’m fairly spiritual (whatever that means), I know I’m pretty, I know I’m kind and compassionate (*cough* most of the time…), and I know that my passion is toward the right place. So I can’t hate myself too much. 🙂

Maybe I’m wrong and I’m actually just crazy. I mean, who drinks hot tea on a warm day like this?

“Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” – Psalm 55:22

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” – 1 Pt. 5:6-7
