The Offense of Anxiety - heavy word that!

Don't recall anyone putting those two things together.
Psalm 139:23-24 seems to link them together, it's been on my mind for some time
Psalm 139 ends on a different note to the frequently quoted earlier part.

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
  test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
  and lead me in the way everlasting.


Examples of more common Biblical approaches to anxiety can be found here:

But offense?

Is anxiety a slur on God's character - echoes of Genesis 3:1?
Did God really say ...

Listening to the radio heard reference to thankfulness and anxiety not being able to co-exist in the brain.
Live in a state of one or the other - guilty of parrot like lip service to thankfulness?
That stirred me to put these thoughts in writing and create this post.

Where did that quote come from? Possibly...

In Revelation 14:6-7 we have described what is called the eternal gospel, what I think of it as 'the bottom line'.

... he (an angel) had the eternal gospel to procalim to those who live on the earth - to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice "Fera God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgement has come. Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water!.

Worship - impossible without a thankful heart.

That reminds me of Revelation 12:11, which I paraphrase / apply as

They overcame by the blood of the lamb.
A legal done deed, I don't have to understand it, I pick it up and live in the benefit of.

They overcome by word of testimony (worship, thankfulness).
I declare the goodness of God - answer to Satan's slur on God's character in Genesis 3:1.

They maintained the word of testimony at great risk to themselves.
I declare the goodness of God in the face of 'apparent' evidence to the contrary.
