Anxiety is nothing new. We all struggle with anxiety whether it’s having to take a test the next day or going for a job interview. We get butterflies and sweaty palms once in awhile. David, who we know from the Bible, also struggled with anxiety but he found strength in his faith in God. Because of his struggles and his great faith he wrote the Psalms. In fact there are many psalms for anxiety that we can draw from as David went through tumultuous times such as when his life was threatened by King Saul.
There have been many times that I struggled with anxiety, times when I was feeling myself being drawn further away from God. Because of that I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to draw close in my relationship with Him. I was afraid that it was too late and he would be disappointed in me until I read the first page of Psalms.
I felt this warm feeling of hope and love when I read a few verses. I felt closer to God than ever before and I felt the anxiety and the fear melt away and soon enough I felt his presence near me. I felt safe and knew nothing could harm me.
It wasn’t until then that I knew that it wasn’t too late for me and that He still loves me.
You may be feeling the way I did. You may be feeling like you cannot draw near to God. You may feel like your anxiety makes you too flawed for Him. But it doesn’t.
So I wanted to share some verses that had helped me ease my anxiety and drew me closer to God. Reach out to God, He will hear you, he’s always listening.
Psalms for Anxiety
Anxiety Does Not Keep You From God
Anxiety is never fun to go through; I know I’ve been there. But God knows and He listens. All you have to do is cast your troubles unto him and read his Word and pray for His help.
There is nothing too big for God to handle. There is no one too flawed or too broken for God to use.
You are loved by Him and you should never forget that.
