Anxiety In The Body
I tend to think everyone is aware of when they're anxious. But, the more I talk with others, the more I realize Americans are so up in their head and not so aware of what messages the body is sending them. This is a major reason we (even Christians) have high blood pressure, stomach aches, and aches and pains. Psalm 139:14 tells us we are fearfully and wonderfully made. That includes the way our body functions. The pain in our bodies is actually a clue to pay attention to what we're thinking, doing, or ignoring. Negative thoughts go beyond our mind generating a corresponding pain in our bodies.
