fear of future and end times My husband gets stricken with fear to the point of taking to his bed and just laying here, thinking. He is afraid of the unknown future. Not of what we will eat and wear and where we will live, God has proven himself faithful in that countless times. Let me just start by saying my husband has a mental illness. He is doing VERY well, thanks be to God, and is able to work and provide for his family. However when something comes up that triggers thoughts about the end times he gets anxious. There are so many metaphors and mysteries in Revelations and that we are still trying to interpret and some may not even become clear until they are actually happening. We don't know what kind of tribulations we will have to witness or endure because of our faith. He is worried that he won't be able to stand. Also, needing medication to keep him on this side of reality is another worry of his. What if things get messy while we are still here and he can't get his meds? He had a breakdown a few years ago and the delusions and paranoia were truly heartbreaking. God HAS lifted his burden before but it creeps back again. The uncertainty of the new President Obama (NOT saying he is the antichrist here, just not knowing what kind of changes he will bring and if he is in any way instrumental in end time matters) has brought on the latest attack of uncertainty. He is able to function at work still but comes home very quiet and preoccupied by his thoughts and worries. I am getting battle weary from having to pray for him and offer comfort etc. Can anyone point me in the direction of fresh perspective or scripture I can pray over him or show him? He searches the Word all the time, and is much more the Biblical scholar than I. (I am very busy 'parenting' and running the household to be able to lock myself away and read scripture for hours at a time. He, on the other hand, has no problem sequestering himself for long periods and reading scriptures.) I suggest to him to get up and DO stuff and to take his mind off his own worries. No luck.
