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.

I originally wanted this blog to be about my views on politics and to share some of my faith, but I wanted to find a way to properly execute both of them. Although politics have taken over this blog I thought today would be a good time to share my faith with you guys. I don’t really share a lot of personal information, and I plan on keeping it that way but in order for me to really talk about my journey with God I’m going to reveal a little bit to you guys.

At this point in my life, my relationship with God is the strongest it’s ever been. That doesn’t mean that there is not more room to grow because there is.  Not too long ago I thought I had my life figured out. I made my own plan for my life. I went to church but I didn’t fully allow God to work in my life. I convinced myself that the direction I was going in was Gods plan. Then He put a stop to it. I was confused and heartbroken. I thought “Why would God allow me to live like this for so long, then when I finally think I have it all figured out he takes it away from me.” Because he knew I deserved better. He knew the life that I was living was not the one he planned for me. After he revealed that to me, he healed my broken heart. I put God in complete control over my life after that, and I’ve never been happier. In order to be truly happy, you have to let God have complete control over your life. You’re still going to go through some bad days but the good days with God are worth it.

A verse that has been stuck in my head through this journey also happens to be my favorite verse. John 16:33 “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.”

God showed me that I am enough. He showed me my worth.
