[quote=maryj]I just want to say that what my first instinct after reading these posts was this…Do you have something you need to confess? Is there something weighing on your conscience? It is the only thing I could think of that would make someone nervous about something bad happening to humanity, do you get my drift ? If the Lord were to come tomorrow would you be ready, I know that I am. What a glorious day that will be. I used to be afraid of everything, and I mean everything and I just didn’t know why. Anxiety I thought. But I have learned to keep myself in a state of Grace through regular confessions, daily prayer, daily Mass when I can get there, and I can’t beleive the difference in my levels of fright and anxiety. I can truthfully say I have conquered these fears, with the help of our Lord. Give it a try, it’s pretty remarkable.
God bless you.
You make a good point, although, I just went to Confession last week and go on a very regular basis, at least every 3 weeks.
I have turned my anxiety disorder over to God but there are still physical consequences to my anxiety.
I would like to point out that for some people (me included) it is hard to let go of past sins, even though we are forgiven and especially if we struggle with particular temptations. The devil often reminds us of our past and I know God’s mercy is beyond comprehension but I can only look at my soul through my human eyes. :o It is hard to see through the faults.
That being said, often these “end times” revelations are often accompanied by violence and as a mother of two small children I can’t imagine anything happening to them or my hubby. It is the fear of the unknown. Yes, I do know there is a Novena to overcome fear, it is a favorite of mine.
Thank you so much for your advice though and I do encourage all to go to Confession!
