Even if you don’t suffer from anxiety, you’ve likely felt a little anxious over the last few months. True anxiety isn’t something that just goes away, you have to work your way through it. For me, I start by taking slow, deep breaths. Then, I pull out a 3×5 card with scripture and focus on that scripture for several minutes. Focusing on something other than the anxiety helps calm everything down. Just remember, you’re not alone.
Here are four verses to help you build up your own “Scripture Focus Cards”.
“He knows every detail of what is happening to me”
2 Timothy 1:7
“…for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.”
