Devotional

I can’t be the only one who suffers from anxiety and needs encouragement on days when I’m really anxious.

Being a college student, working an internship, being involved in different organizations life can get kind of hectic and can cause anyone to be worrisome or anxious. I have found a few verses that I wanted to share for when I am suffering from anxiety.

A lot of the time anxiety can stem from not fully trusting God and his plan. God has a perfect plan for your life and you have to willing to trust Him. Proverbs 29:25 says that “Fear of man will prove to be snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.” This verse speaks for itself. God succeeds fear, trust in Him.

A lot of the time we spend too much time worrying about tomorrow and getting anxious about things that haven’t even happened or things that are out of our control. Matthew 6:34 says “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Take things one step at a time and trust God.

Now, my favorite verse of all time John 16:33. This verse is amazing and can instantly calm any anxious mind. It says “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” This verse is so powerful to me. Even though I’m a Christian, it doesn’t mean all my problems go away but it does me that I can face my problems with God which is so comforting.

Last but not least, Proverbs 12:25 says “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.” Kindness, support and words of encouragement are a great way to combat anxiety. Jesus can give you the perfect words of encouragement when you pray and talk to him.

God gives us the solutions to all of our problems in His word. He gives us the solutions that no therapy can.
