PANIC BUTTON CHRISTIANS
It could be a car accident, it could be something suddenly coming your way, saying 'you better get right with God, are you ready? As for what is at stake, Laurie said that according to the Bible, the only two possibilities are Heaven and Hell.
Laurie said that people can make sure they are going to Heaven by believing in Jesus, and led viewers in a prayer. I read about another man who got in the bathtub with his family and prayed. He posed a number of questions people could consider: Would you call on the name of God? Would you ask for forgiveness of your sins? Would you contact your loved ones? I learned to compensate by avoiding highway driving.
My fear had become a specific phobia. This type of phobia involves a ginormous fear and avoidance of one particular type of object or situation. My mind made this iron-clad connection between the two: And I lived short of the abundant life Jesus desired for me. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I Jesus came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I hope it help you get relief if you too have had a panic attack or other types of anxiety, including general anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Yes, some Christians have panic attacks. Jesus himself was deeply troubled in the hours before his imprisonment. You see, overcoming panic attacks involves identifying your heart idols — those things you love more than God — and learning the truth about God and yourself as well as renewing your mind in line with Romans To overcome panic attacks, knowing what God says about fear is a step in the right direction but I had to take another step, a scary step: Two summers ago, I buckled my seat belt, turned up the praise music, waved good-bye to my family, and drove my Honda west, flying down highways, singing and smiling.
Six hours later, I arrived at my destination.

We offer both Skype and in-person counseling. You can check out our counseling page at https: We look forward to helping you. I am also experiencing panic attacks.. The words give me anxiety although I think I know about grace—I would even describe me as a prisoner of hope. But I hate it when these things happen. I wish the Lord just spoke to me or comforted me, Himself—not that I think I deserve it. I cannot comfort me.. I am afraid I would forget myself and then sin. Since I am kinda forgetful, too. My heart goes out to those believers and non-believers who are struggling with daily anxiety and debilitating panic attacks.

My inner man has lived in fear for years. When I was a new Christian it felt like the fear was gone but it slowly returned. Hi Steve, as you know better than most people, panic attacks are awful. Yet there is hope. First talk with your doctor to see if there is an organic cause for your panic attacks.

The urgency of avoiding hell surpassed any trivial education the world had to offer. Salvation was attached to belief, and in order to protect my belief I had to censor my thoughts. So I was careful to never even think a thought that could be considered blasphemous. This was profoundly exhausting; and while I was mostly successful at repressing my intellectual curiosity during the day, once sleep came I lost all security clearance to my own mind.
Not My First Panic Attack
My dreams were terrorized by a wide-eyed witch who worked for the devil. Soon I began sleepwalking, often waking in the darkness of our back yard. Soon I began avoiding sleep, staying awake, watching TV to stay awake as long as I could.
Throughout my middle and high school years, I flunked more classes than I passed. Release came only when my evangelical friends and I put on theatrical productions that frightened audiences into conversion. Those plays would happen on Easter, but the most fun came at Halloween with the Hell House. Presented as just another haunted house, crowds would be led through a series of vignettes featuring abuse, overdoses, abortions, drunk-driving crashes, gang shootings and suicides this was how we assumed all nonbelievers spent their time , followed by the big-budget climax of hell.
Our sinners would walk through a slim, dark hallway, where unseen hands grabbed at their ankles. Once completely disoriented and emotionally exhausted, patrons were then ushered into a comfortably lit, domestically furnished room with tissue boxes and smiling counselors ready to share the good news of Jesus with them. Looking back, I now realize that the tactics guilt, disorientation of senses, casting doubts of their moral identity would probably qualify as brainwashing. Perhaps I knew that at the time but rationalized it because so much was at stake.
After all, the year was nearly upon us. Despite living in a small town, I was a member of three different evangelical Christian churches at this time. Needing far more than just a Sunday fix, I was attending about nine different religious classes a week. And then there were two different church camps each summer, four conventions each school year, and countless youth rallies, concerts, and theatrical productions. I even enrolled myself in a rural Christian school my junior year of high school. I was perfectly isolated from any outside influence. My dad, however, had renounced church altogether, and my mom only went on Sundays, so for the most part my zealotry was self-imposed.
I judged their lack of commitment and often stopped speaking to them for stretches of time. Unlike drug use or listening to gangsta rap, no parent worries about their kids spending too much time at church.
