My Favorite Bible Verses on Anxiety, Stress, & Worry

My faith has always been #1 for me. I’ve always been open about that on the internet, and I always pray to be open and willing to being even more open about that if/when that’s what God calls me to be. It’s always been the thing that got me through the toughest of times in my life, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have had really close, really intimate experiences with Jesus that have, quite frankly, changed my life. I’ve blogged Bible verses on anxiety before, but I wanted to do a bigger, more comprehensive roundup of my personal favorites so that you can bookmark – especially now. 2020 was obviously a year, and since not much technically changes at the drop of the shiny ball in Times Square, I know I for one want to be ~prepared~ for whatever 2021 has in store. I’m expectant and hopeful of the good, but also realistic and ready for the not-so-good that may come with #life. So, I’m putting on my spiritual armor and setting my sight (+ heart) on Truth. Stress, worry, anxiety, depression…it all has no place in the Kingdom of God! Ain’t nobody got time! Without further adieu, here are some of my favorite Bible verses on anxiety, stress, & worry.
