Hello friends,

One of the things I myself and I believe most people struggle with is anxiety; fear of the unknown. I've struggled to overcome this for years and always find myself learning the same lessons over and over again. These verses are my go to whenever I let doubt creep in and I hope they help you the way that they do me!

 

Proverbs 12:25

"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but good work makes him glad."

Matthew 6:25-34

 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.  But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

1 Peter 5:6-8 

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."

Psalm 23:4

"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."

Hebrews 13:5-6

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

Romans 8:38

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Colossians 3:15

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace; and be thankful."

John 14:27

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Philippians 4:6-7

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Psalms 34:4

"I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears." 

Romans 8:26-28

"Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings to deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose."

2 Corinthians 12:10 

"For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

2 Corinthians 5:1

"For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." 

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you hope and a future." 

2 Timothy 1:7

"For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control."

Isaiah 41:40

"Fear not; for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous hand."

1 John 4:18

"There is no fear in love; for perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love."

Joshua 1:9

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened and do not be dismayed. For the Lord your God is with you, wherever you go."

Exodus 14:14

"The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent."

 

How simple and self-aware we are.. to ever doubt the presence and power of Christ in our lives. 

With love,

Cassandra
