What is “Anxiety?”
“Anxiety” is our reaction to a situation that we perceive as either stressful or dangerous.
So…How should we respond to anxiety?
Three Key Principles that are meant to be experienced and modeled for others
Modeling truth is a key. Jesus Himself did not come only to teach content; He came to “be” truth.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life…”
The first Key Principle: Stewardship of our time.
Remaining intentionally conscious of the reality that throughout our day…..God is with us
The second Key Principle: Boundaries and Accountability
We must identify and draw a line between “I am responsible for you” and
“I am responsible to you.”
This is a fine line but an important line
Crossing this line adds to our anxiety and all too often we cross it.
An Accountability Partner will help us identify and honor our Boundaries.
The third Key Principle: Do not major on the minors
We need to be faithful to our calling and “stay in our lanes.”
How can a leader care for him or her self when it comes to anxiety?
