While I was driving home from work a few days ago, I felt an unusual kind of dizziness and a constant tightness on my chest. It lasted the whole 2-hr ride and I remember wanting to get home as soon as possible.
I asked my parents to check my blood pressure and it turned out that I had a normal one.🙃
Me: So, what was it po? What did I feel while driving?
Dad: ANXIETY, anak.
I was shocked because it was the first time that I felt anxiety physically (that intense). It’s possible that the burdens I’ve been carrying this past month overwhelmed me so much. A similar feeling happened a month ago, after I ate a huge chunk of sansrival with thick butter frosting. Both times felt like I was going to have a heart attack.
I realized that God was serious when He gave us 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he CARES for you.” and Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect PEACE those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
It was God’s way of telling me “Nic, because of Me, you REALLY don’t have to worry about anything. Lift them up to me. I gotchu.”
