5 Bible Verses for a Worried Heart

Everything Happens for a Reason

This time of year, pretty much everyone has stress about one thing or another. From sports fans, to students, and so on, we all have some type of anxiety in our hearts, and with the holidays fast approaching, it’s only a matter of time before we’re completely overwhelmed.

However, I have some good news. The stress is only temporary. Everything happens for a reason, and God has your back. He has a plan.

Here are five Bible verses to ease your worried spirit.

Philippians 4:6-7It is amazing what prayer can do as a stress reliever. It’s basically the same thing as venting to your best friend. You’re telling God about the adversities you face and the troubles weighing on your heart. It just feels good to get it all off your chest.

John 14:27

When you give your worries over to God, He gives you His peace in return. His peace is better than the first sip of coffee on a winter morning or finally laying down to bed after a long day. The world might give you problems, but God gives you an escape.

Matthew 6:25-34

I’m just as guilty as anyone when it comes to worrying about things that haven’t happened yet, instead of understanding God will provide for me. No matter that happens later today or tomorrow, God will provide. We can sigh with relief because we need only concern with the now, and God takes care of the later.

Joshua 1:9

This verse is my personal favorite. How reassuring is it knowing God is always with you? In the good times, the bad times, the overwhelming times, and the lonely times, God is always there. You’re never alone.

John 13:7

God’s plans for us are so much bigger than we could ever imagine. He knows our minds, He knows our spirits, and He knows our capabilities (even when we don’t know our own). If you believe in Him, and you trust in Him, do not to worry. Just rest easy knowing God has something spectacular planned for your life.

When you take a deep breath of fresh air and dive into the word of God, you’ll come out feeling more refreshed than ever. We are busy people with busy lives and loads of responsibilities, but we also have responsibilities as followers of Christ. Take a little time out of each day to remind yourself of the blessing in your life, thank God for those blessing, and exchange your worries for His peace.

Don’t let the stresses and worries of this world overshadow the love of God you have in your heart. Everything will be okay.
