Are You Worried? Here are 6 Scriptures to Help You Battle Anxiety

anxiety guest postWhat worries you? If you are like me and suffer from anxiety disorder, then many things worry you:

  • the health of my son and husband
  • our finances
  • if I will ever go back to teaching
  • if my husband will ever get a promotion or a job that pays him what he’s worth
  • when we will be able to move out of my parents’ basements
  • when there isn’t a plan for the day in place
  • getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight
  • this year’s presidential election
  • why so many different sects and denominations of Christianity hate each other

The list could go on and on. I don’t worry about all of these every moment of every day, but they are always in the back of my mind.

However, I am often taught by Christ to trust in Him and to put faith in His plan for me. I mention on my blog often about when anxiety overcomes me: here, here, here, and here. But, in the end, I always recognize the comfort that the Holy Ghost gives me, the familiar feeling of being hugged by my Heavenly Father telling me it will be all right.

So, I encourage you to read those posts and think about your own experiences with anxiety and worry. Then, I want you to read the following scriptures and quotes from church leaders. (Also, read Psalms. There is such beauty in Psalms, and so many promises of a loving, protecting Savior.) Finally, I want you to kneel down in earnest prayer. Lay all your trouble on our Savior. That is one of the reasons He died for us. He has been there and always will be here. He knows. He understands. He will lift you up and help you through it. I promise you that.

Proverbs 3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Elder David A Bednar: But can we hush the fears that so easily and frequently beset us in our contemporary world? The answer to this question is an unequivocal yes. Three basic principles are central to receiving this blessing in our lives: (1) look to Christ, (2) build upon the foundation of Christ, and (3) press forward with faith in Christ.

Elder Jeffrey R Holland: (Seriously just read this whole talk, especially if you are suffering physically or mentally) Whatever your struggle, my brothers and sisters—mental or emotional or physical or otherwise—do not vote against the preciousness of life by ending it! Trust in God. Hold on in His love. Know that one day the dawn will break brightly and all shadows of mortality will flee. Though we may feel we are “like a broken vessel,” as the Psalmist says,10 we must remember, that vessel is in the hands of the divine potter. Broken minds can be healed just the way broken bones and broken hearts are healed. While God is at work making those repairs, the rest of us can help by being merciful, nonjudgmental, and kind.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Psalm 3:3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

Psalm 115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

Psalm 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Spontaneous Trip to Grandma and Grandpa’s House

neni

This past Friday and Saturday my grandparents were vendors at a flea market. Now before we get into that ordeal let me enlighten you on a little bit of background information. O. K. so Thursday I had a study date with a special friend. While he was over my dad went with my grandparents to help them with a flea market they were doing over the weekend (little did I know then I would be helping as well later). So my friend and I got a ton of school done for the week  and then got to hangout. Once my dad and grandparents were done they came back to the house and stayed for a while. Right before my grandparents were about to leave my dad asked if I wanted to spend the night at their house. O.K. now you are up to speed on Thursday. Recap: 1) Was just a normal school day 2) Spontaneously gets asked to spend the night 3) Of course excepts! I went to dinner with them and then went back to their house and had fun with them.  The next morning I got up at a ridiculous time and went to the show. We sold a bunch of stuff and had fun! Then Saturday we did the same thing. This fun packed weekend could have never happened if I wasn’t homeschooled. Thursday is a school night and I was able to spend the night and spend time with my grandparents. Grateful for how blessed I am, I love homeschooling! Thanks Mom and Dad!
