Anxiety and Fear Are Twins|Causes of Insomnia

Anxiety and Fear Are Twins

Life is full of unknowns. Nothing stays perfectly still. Separation is inevitable. What do you value most?  Ranking our life priorities is a must. 

What I learn from the Bible, there is no fear in strong steadfast faith. What I learn from life, vanity, love of money,  anger, and the feeling of unbeloved are the common causes of anxiety and suffering, all of which are the reasons to make us a fool in life. Save regrets in life.  According to the Bible, the main causes of human suffering are selfishness, greed, and hatred. If a person suffers from worrying about losing his face or worrying about his future, what would you say? His worries root in low confidence in problem-solving and even selfishness. 

Our Duties in Life 

  • According to the Bible’s instruction, “One’s gift is prophecy” and you know the way to where you are going (Romans 12:6).
  • To serve and to help
  • to repay favors. 
  • the ability to interpret all happening in life in a positive way so as to find the gifts and blessings behind the storm. 

 

Take Advice from the Bible 

Health & Illness 

Believe in God’s arrangement. Stick to “love and self-discipline” (2 Timothy 1:7). According to the Bible “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones” (Proverbs 17:22). “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down” (Proverbs 12:25). According to the Bible, “Bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come” (1 Timothy 4:8).

The cost of chronic anxiety is high. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), unconstructive overthinking and persistent anxiety are crucially detrimental to the kidney and liver. Essentially, worries and anxiety root in fear, such as fear of losing or someone important, or fear of losing a once-in-a-lifetime chance. It’s top important to keep a peaceful mind to keep good health. If you can’t stop worrying, it means you are scared and you don’t have enough confidence in your problem-solving ability. Do not run away from your fear. Do something. Learning is the best weapon to overcome fear.

 

Anxiety is the manifestation of fear, fear of losing something or someone valuable.  Anxiety “weighs down the heart” and takes away our hope and inner peace (Proverbs 12:25). It can be a sign of wavering faith or little faith.  Thus, when you are “afraid,” put trust in God’s plan, God’s justice, and God’s mighty power (Psalm 56:3).[3] When people around us struggle with fears, “a kind word” cheers up the heart (Proverbs 12:25). Believe in the Bible’s instruction and “Do not let your hearts be troubled” for “no word from God will ever fail” (John 14:1, Luke 1:35-37).

The Cost of Little Fatih 

Most people experience moments of wavering faith.[1] Countless people have doubts in their hearts. If we do believe that God is watching over us all the time, why we fail to discipline ourselves? If we truly believe in God’s plan and God’s arrangement, why we suffer from fear of the unknown? The Bible says, Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen(Hebrews 11:1). Be aware of little faith, namely wavering faith. Those who have little faith and trust in God, their hope will perish too (Job 8:13-15). 

 

As to God’s discipline, we’d better “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” happen for a purpose to make us “perfect and complete” and “produce steadfastness” in faith (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). The Bible makes it clear that “Suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character” (Romans 5:3-6).

 

Embrace Changes 

Staying in a comfort zone is a double-edged sword. Staying in the comfort zone means resisting uncertainty and the unknown. Changes are inevitable.

By walking out of the comfort zone, we open the doors to change, growth, and self-actualization. Great rewards take time. Do not expect overnight success.

Significantly, the lines in our palms keep changing based on our minds and behavior. Our future is not fixed. It’s alterable. It can be better or worse. Thus, guard yourself against temptations. Self-discipline is the key to a good blessed life. God holds against fortune-telling. If any of you get confused about life, or if any of you “lacks wisdom,” seek answers from God (James 1:5). If God does not answer your prayers, check your motives first.[2]

About Tomorrow 

Proverbs 27:1
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.

James 4:13-17
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Ephesians 5:15-17
Be very careful, then, how you live.

 

“People perish for lack of knowledge”

As elaborated in the Bible, “People perish for lack of knowledge” (Proverbs 24:5, Hosea 4:6). The righteous compassionate God takes “no pleasure in the death of anyone” and God does not want “anyone to perish” (Luke 15:10, Luke 15:7 2, Peter 3:8-9). Significantly, “do not gloat over” people’s “calamity in the day of their disaster.” (Obadiah 1:13). As to the seven deadly sins, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). To love and to repent. Again, “love covers over a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).

 

In the Bible, David experienced “pain” and “troubled in spirit” because of the visions he saw (Psalm 69:29, Daniel 7:15). Whenever David cried out to God in anguish, he acknowledges God’s power and plan (Psalm 13:5). Place full trust in God. Believe in God’s plan and stop worrying.

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and a dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems, and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies, and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Stop recording the faults of others and practice compassion mediation instead.我喜歡文字,大概是因為我喜歡永恆的東西,而世上多數的東西都不是。不是所有人都需要心靈雞湯,如果你絕對正向而強壯。養心養身,而潛意識24小時不睡覺,身體自癒的開關落在潛意識的區塊,只有絕對入骨的正向樂觀才能痊癒,恐懼傷骨傷腎,老人家們容易膝蓋牙齒不好是因為恐懼多憂慮多。中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼、悲觀和過食是疾病的根源。自認不是棉花糖的勵志派,是寫實警世的定位,但我肯定有邏輯基礎的正向思考,Bible很多內容都很科學,也符合中醫的論點。佛教主張前世今生的因果論,而 Bible主張人生只有一回,但人生必有難題。難題分兩種,一種是磨練鍛鍊心智的training,好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物。禍福相依,壞消息可能帶來跳板、第三條路的視野、或逆境激發潛力。好消息往往伴隨更多責任挑戰,甚至暗藏陷阱,很多好消息最後變成頭痛點。第二種難題是試煉,上蒼期望你我在逆境中堅守,試煉,是上蒼決定該不該給你我天堂入場卷的門票!猶太人虔誠,但他們的教堂沒有神像沒有十字架,只有書(因為信仰在心中)。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,當掉就要重修(歷史就會重演)。氣生災,如果你我相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。Bible強調柔軟的力量、自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。寫信給站長(責任編輯)司馬儀: jpsiawase@gmail.com 如果遭受暴力(家暴,或霸凌)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休。生活學業工作等等困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。若簽約租賃碰到詐騙,撥打165反詐騙專線(警察)或內政部警政署反詐騙諮詢專線:0800-018-110
