Angst. A feeling of deep anxiety or dread. Typically an unfocused feeling about the human condition or the state of the world in general. Yuck.
Yep. That terrible feeling that is out of nowhere and about nothing in particular. If we really start thinking about the state of the world, there is plenty for us to consider. The state of the human condition is revealed in social media every day. There is enough angst out there to send us into a feeling of dread in a heartbeat.
Anxiety over the choices that other people are making is useless. Dread over the condition of the world may be inevitable, but we have little control over the human condition. What we do have is our faith. Don't lose yourself in anxiety and dread, instead let your faith be the bedrock of your life.
Let your FAITH run rampant. Choose Joy. Choose Happiness. Do what you can do, and be satisfied. Do what God puts in your path to complete and feel content. Do what God's people all over the world are called to do. Have Faith that God has a plan. It's for our good. It's a good plan with unlimited possibilities and potential. Chose happiness.
Psalm 16:9 MSG
"I’m happy from the inside out, and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed."
