Humility

6Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded;be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11

When i am experiencing anxiety the root issue is that i am trying to be self sufficient acting independent of God..all the cares coming my way  are actually provided by God specifically for the purpose of cultivating humility in my life ...God wants me to learn to depend on Him to NEED HIM and in the end to give glory to Him with an ever deepening appreciation for the mighty hand of God...
