Hey, friends!

If you saw my last post or follow along with me on social media, then you may have seen that my life if full of worry right now. 

When there are more questions than answers in this life – heck, even when we do have answers – it’s all too easy to let worry creep into our minds and invade our thoughts.

However, we are so blessed that worry doesn’t have a hold on us, and that we serve a God who is bigger than it all – even our worry.

Then next time you find yourself in the pit of worry, let one (or all) of these verses flood your mind instead.

"Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." 
Matthew 6:34

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding." 
Proverbs 3:5

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." 
Philippians 4:6-7

"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?"
Luke 12:25

"Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
Matthew 11:28-29

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world give do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled neither let them be afraid."
John 14:27

"cast all of your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7

  1. Proverbs 3:5 is my favorite bible verse ever and I literally just commented about it on another one of my friend's blogs a few minutes ago because she is struggling with infertility. That bible verse has gotten me through a lot. I'm the worst about worrying and no matter what I do I can't seem to stop it. It's just awful.

    1. I totally agree with you. It is one of my biggest struggles! I love that verse, too. :)
