What is anxiety?
anx·i·e·ty [aNGˈzīədē] NOUN
a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
I woke up at 2am one morning feeling anxious. I looked up the definition. Synonyms for anxiety include but are not limited to: worry · concern · apprehension, unease · fearfulness · fear · disquiet, disquietude, fretfulness, stress
After looking up the definition I asked, what does the Bible say about anxiety? This is what I found:
Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, ...” -- Joshua 1:9a
