sometimes I get jittery

 I had some experiences today that had the potential to make me nervous, jittery & anxious – all for good reasons that don’t need the details here.  But I think that we all struggle with being anxious, nervous & jittery for various reasons.  Hopefully, this might provide some helpful ideas:

  • It always helps me when I’m anxious or jittery to take a minute & fix my thoughts on Jesus – gives me some good perspective
  • When I’m nervous, I want to be mindful that I’m not snappy with people because, then I feel bad in addition to feeling nervous
  • If I have some long-term nervousness going on, sometimes I’ll stop & make a list of the good things that God has done (inventory God’s faithfulness);  this helps me to adjust my trust off of the anxiety & onto Jesus
  • asking a friend to pray can also be very helpful
  • God also reminded me one time that He has more answers than I have questions & that He has more solutions than I have problems – that was super helpful!!

Ps 55:22 says to cast our cares on the Lord because He cares for us.

  1. Thankyou Sarah, I’m going through some serious health and financial problems and getting very jittery about it. Your blog could not have come at a more opportune time for me! Thankyou Again.
