If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen the list of 10 Verses for When You're Anxious. If you don't already follow me, you should!
I've shared before, but one of the things I struggle with in this life is anxiety. I am a worrier, a stresser, a panicker. I worry about things that COULD happen, or might happen, haunted by the "what-ifs." Sometimes social situations and big crowds make me anxious, confrontation makes me anxious, dogs I don't know, a messy house, etc. etc etc. make me anxious.
On Monday, I was feeling especially worked up over some big life-changes that are on the horizon for our family on my way home from work. There are a lot of things I can do to help relieve anxiety, but I felt my bible calling my name, so I sat down at my desk and just thumbed through it, looking for verses that helped me when I felt an anxiety attack coming on. These verses were not hard for me to find because they are so marked up, some of them have the pages folded or tear drops on the pages, verses that I've clung to while caught in fear. I wrote myself a list in my journal, and want you to have the list too for those times of worry, of stress, of fear. For the times life seems out of control, the times you don't know how you can whether the storm you're in, the times you don't know what is on the other side of the door.
I purposely didn't write these out for you because it was a wonderful time of worship for me to look up each of these verses, read them, and reflect on God's promises. I hope you will do this too. He is who he says he is. He will take care of us, He calms our hearts, He provides for us, He loves us and will never leave us alone. Remember that today my friends!
