Anxiety is something that so many people struggle with. And not just people in general but Christians in particular even though Jesus said about a million times don’t be anxious.
As much as He said this though it’s still a negative emotion that many of us can’t shake.
So I’ve put together this bible reading plan of Bible verses that talks about anxiety. I got this list from: https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/worry-and-anxiety-bible-verses/Continue reading
An estimated 40 million Americans are suffering from anxiety.
And while there should be no Christians counted in that number I know for sure that there are (I am one of them).
Why shouldn’t any Christians that struggle with anxiety?
Because Jesus told us about a million different times not to be anxious ( give or take a few times).
Yet so often we still can’t overcome the constant worry and doubt that plagues so many of us.
So I thought it would be good to have a devotional and remind ourselves of 5 major things Jesus said about overcoming anxiety. Continue reading
This is part 2 of my How To Overcome Anxiety-Based Procrastination blog post series.
I split it up only because there’s so much information here that it might overwhelm you if you tried to read it all in one sitting.
If you haven’t read part 1 of this anxiety-based procrastination series, please click here and do so because part 2 probably won’t make much sense without you reading the beginning.
Know what I mean, Verne?

You’re ready for a life change…
You know the Lord is calling you to do something different with your life. Not just like buy a new bible or pray a little bit longer or try that new Sunday school class.
No, He wants you to do something big. Radical. Scary (yikes). And he’s been wanting you to do it for a while now…like maybe even years.
But you’re too scared to jump out there in faith and start whatever it is that he’s been wanting you to do.
So you procrastinate because your anxiety is off the charts (also known as anxiety-based procrastination…it has other names too that I’ll discuss later).
You let everything including the kitchen sink (hey the dishes have to get done, amirite?) get in the way of following God’s plan for your life (ask me how I know).
Every time the Holy Spirit starts poking prodding you to start the project ( in fact that’s what we’ll call it throughout the duration of this post, the project) you’re all ” is this really what I’m supposed to do? If only I could get a sign”
And because no clouds roll back like a scroll, no dove descends upon your shoulder, and no booming voice from heaven proclaims “yes my child this is exactly what you must do. Go forth and use thine talents in the name of the Father Son and the Holy Spirit” you act all brand new like you aren’t sure your really being “lead” or not.
Well, let’s establish something.
If the project is challenging, outside of your comfort zone, scares you a little (or to death) and it will glorify God and serve people, it’s prolly God’s will.
Trust me, I feel your pain.
