We bring anxiety upon ourselves. Whether it is part of our nature or situational, we all have found ourselves to be anxious. However, we often fail to recognize when we cause anxiety in others. Anxiety is defined as a "perceived threat". Sometimes we unintentionally cause people around us to feel less confident in their own abilities than they should. We inadvertently cause them to question their competence or worth. The solution to anxiety is encouragement. Encouragement is defined as "instilling courage". When we encourage others, we build courage in them and remind them that they are competent and that they are worthy.
Lord, thank you for encouraging me and help me to encourage others.
