15-Minute Spiritual Morning Routine to Ease Anxiety
Seven years after Rebekah Lyons (click here to view her website) thought she had overcome her daily battles with anxiety and depression, she suffered a major panic attack, worse than any she had experienced before. The relapse caused Lyons to take a closer look at her response to fear. In her new book, Rhythms of Renewal: Trading Stress and Anxiety for a Life of Peace and Purpose, out today, Lyons details how daily struggles with anxiety and stress make it difficult to find peace and reach spiritual health in an article at Parade.com (click to to view). Below is a synopsis of that article.
If possible, I start every day this way. Prayer grants me access to the Holy Spirit’s comfort, a balm that transcends time and space, reputation and race. Through these moments, Jesus repairs, restores, redeems, and resurrects.
Each entry begins with the setting, the time, the date. As much as these entries help me discern the direction of any given day, I know they’ll serve as reminders of God’s faithfulness in the days to come.
Each day is a little different. Sometimes I take a passage and camp there, or a long section of Psalms, sometimes an entire book at a time in the Old or New Testament. But each day, this time in the Scriptures is like the table set by God in Psalm 23. It’s a feast the Father has laid out for me, offering me everything I will need as I set out for the rest of the day.

By This Name
In today’s world, many adopt their own brand of spirituality to make God out to be anything they want. Others consider God to be an impersonal force. By This Name utilizes a seldom-used but solidly biblical method to set apart the God of the Bible from other forms of spirituality, all the while answering two questions: “Who is Jesus?” and “What are the cross and tomb all about?” It establishes the authority of Scripture and gently compares the biblical worldview with other worldviews in an objective, non-arm-twisting way.

Arab for Israel, Brigitte Gabriel born in Marjayoun, Lebanon goes on CNN to correct and expose Arab propaganda on the media and explains it is Hezbollah who began the fight by throwing missiles to Israeli land and kidnapping Israeli soldier which goes against the law.
She says Israel is the guard to stop the Islamic terrorism from killing other non-Muslims and from stopping them to take over land not theirs.
As a South Lebanese Christian, Christians are killed and their land is invaded by Muslims who overpopulated them. Nasrallah wants all of the world to be Muslim and kills anyone who is against him.
He placed me in a little cage,
Away from gardens fair;
But I must sing the sweetest songs
Because He placed me there.
Not beat my wings
against the cage
If it's my Maker's will,
But raise my voice to heaven's gate
And sing the louder still!
My God Carries Me
Though friends may abandon and dreams may grow dim;
High hopes fall around me, I’ll still trust in Him.
Can’t trust my emotions The way that I feel,
The fact is - God loves me, That’s all that is real.
Yes, my body is failing My memory’s poor; My ship is past sailing, Old age at the door.
Still, I know God is faithful, What He says is true; He sees all the heartache that I’m going through.
So- I’ll turn to my Jesus, and take in His Word; and watch all my worries fly off like a bird.
Hallelujah, I’m happy, Content just to be In arms strong and steadfast
As God carries Me!
