13 Most Powerful Bible Verses For The Girl Struggling With Anxiety Attacks

Powerful Bible Verses For Anxiety Attacks

[I’m thrilled to share today’s post with you by Sacha Rose from Clothed With Dignity! She will be talking about her experience with anxiety and the scriptures she’s used to help her get through tough times. I will also be making a few additions to her post but I will put my comments in purple so you’ll know the difference :). Now let’s get started and see what she has to share!]

Mental health is a bit of a taboo subject in modern Churches.

There aren’t a lot of pastors that openly talk about Christians who have mental health issues such as anxiety disorder or depression, and what can be done in order to help them.

Oftentimes Christians will brush it under the rug and say that you are lacking faith, or need to pray to God more.

We know that Jesus died for our sins, for the sins of the whole world, and there is nothing that is impossible with Him.

There are so many testimonies throughout time of people breaking free of their mental health issues that Jesus has healed them from.

But this isn’t going to be the case for everyone. For many, including myself, there are ongoing struggles that we have to work through.

I suffer from anxiety and have done so for a very long time. Some days are harder than others, but what truly helps me get through each day is my faith in God alone.

7 Anxiety-Reducing Activities To Help You Cope With Stress (Unique Method)!

Top 7 Ways To Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Have you ever lived with something so long that you begin to think it’s normal?

Then you get a clue and you’re like wait I’m not meant to live like this!

I had that realization this week about anxiety.

Although I’ve overcome depression completely and given anxiety more than a few punches, I still am not completely free and I’m guessing you’re not either.

I guess I thought hey as long as my anxiety isn’t paralyzing like it was before then it’s ok to have some anxiety.

But why though?

The goal should be to beat anxiety in the face and win the fight, not settle for being less anxious.

There’s a reason why Jesus said don’t worry over and over again.

He doesn’t want us to use precious brain cells and time worrying when we could be praying to the Father and getting real results.

So in today’s post, I’m going to talk about some anxiety-reducing activities and tips to start beating stress for good.

These are some of the ways that I’ve used to help me at least get a strong grip on anxiety.

But first I’m going to tell you HOW to use these tips because that’s equally as important.

Being lonely is one of the most universal and isolating emotions in the world. But you don’t have to feel this way. In this post, I’m going to show you that you are desperately needed and loved. 
I saw a heartbreaking video yesterday.

It was of an English woman who would go to the grocery store just so she could talk to the cashier.

She said that If she didn’t do that she said she could literally go months without talking to another person. What’s even sadder is that she’s not alone.

Loneliness is at an epidemic level. In the UK, an estimated 9 million people are as lonely as this woman.

25 Powerful Signs Of An Emotionally & Mentally Healthy Woman

black woman smiling

Signs Of An Emotionally Healthy Woman

Does it sometimes feel like the world has gone stark raving mad and they are trying to drive you to crazy town with them?

Sometimes it’s people trying to pull you into their drama at work (“Girl, did you hear what Susie Q said to me?”)…

Or your husband saying stuff (“Why aren’t my pants ironed yet”)…

Or your kids tripping at school (“Mrs.So&So, This is the principal at Central High School. We need you to come down here right away”).

Or it’s the news or social media (News Headline: “The Worst Thing That Has Ever Happened In The Existence Of The World Has Happened Just This Morning“).

Of course, I’m being a little tongue in cheek but there does seem to always be something or someone that is trying to mess with our emotional and mental state.

So if you’re able to have these 23 signs of an emotionally healthy woman in the midst of all the dramas of life and constant state of outrage that the media seems to claim we are in you’ve got it going on.

If only I had a dollar for every time a news headline said something or someone “sparked outrage” I’d have at least $5,000 dollars by now.
