I battle with fear and anxiety.  Today I am losing the battle.  Will I always be anxious? What am I afraid of? I don’t get it some days.  I battle with trust.  Just when I think I am winning the battle, something happens and I feel like the rug has been pulled out from under me.  Maybe I trust people too much.  When they mess up, I take it personal. Like it was my fault.  Ugggh…..this suks.

So, I put on Christian music and read these verses again and again. Please Lord, let it sink in.  I know God is at work, I just wish He would hurry up about it!  Sometimes I think it would be easier to be a rock.

10 Bible Verses About Anxiety

Philippians 4:6-8

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.

Matthew 6:31-34

“Do not be anxious then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘With what shall we clothe ourselves?’ “For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Psalm 56:3

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.

  2. I’ve been struggling a lot with anxiety too, mostly from just bad things happening in my life lately. I’ve wished many times that I could hit the rewind button and start 2013 all over. I know God has reasons for these trials I’m going through right now, even though I don’t understand them. It does help to read these verses. I need to print them out and put them on my refrigerator or somewhere that I can see them frequently! I pray that things get better for you.

    1. Thank you Gail. I appreciate your honesty. Is is worse for girls? We just have too many hormones I think. I will have to put the verses up too. If you find the rewind button sign me up, I’m ready! And I pray that you receive peace that surpasses your understanding as God wraps His arms around you like a warm fuzzy blanket.
