10 Bible Verses for Worry and Anxiety

  Worry and anxiety are things that we all struggle with to one degree or another, but for some it can become so big that it takes over our lives. If you’re a Christian, you were not called to live paralyzed by fear, worry or anxiety.

The enemy wants nothing more than to whisper lies into your ear and cause you to believe them, but God has defeated the enemy and wants you to walk in that freedom. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” -Romans 8:31

  I’ve struggled a LOT with fear and anxiety over the last few years and I’ve found that through it all, God’s word is true and has power.

When you’re worrying about something, try replacing that thought with what is TRUE. God lives in you and wants you to break free from the strongholds of fear, worry and anxiety.

I realize that this is off topic from my normal frugal living and recipe posts, but at the end of the day, this blog is about my life and my journey. I’ve struggled a lot lately with these issues and I wanted to share the verses that have been helping me in hopes that they can help someone else.
