Let Go & Let God: 20 Verses on Anxiety and Stress

 The other night I was reading on She Reads Truth, and I came across this quote.  
“Christ is often nearer to us than we think he is.”– Matthew Henry
How wonderful is it that our God is always with us, watching over us, and will never forsake us?!  I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on being patient with the Lord, His timing, and His plan for my life.  But my God is always there telling me to be patient and trust in Him.  And with learning to be patient and fully trust in Him comes anxiety and stress.  Buy this print here.
I’m anxious…Anxious about what job I’ll have in the fall, if I’ll have a job at all.Anxious of where the Lord will take Thomas and I’s relationship as the year goes on.Anxious of where my next move is.  To live on my own?  To stay living with my parents?  To moving closer to Thomas?  Can I handle the long-distance much longer, or is a move to another state in the making?
And I’m stressed…Its a time for making new friends now that I’ve moved away from college and back home.Or maybe renewing old friendships that I didn’t maintain during my college years.Do I get a summer job?  Or focus on getting a job in the fall?If T and I both have jobs this summer, will we be able to visit each other?
So many ifs linger in my mind along with the many decisions that need to be made as I “grow up”. —And by the way if you wanna know my opinion, growing up is for the birds.  I’ll take coloring outside the lines, or even ditching college classes to lay out in the sun, over paying off student loans and job searching any day of the week; PLEASE!!
But back on topic with all this stress and anxiety filling my life, I must redirect my thudding heart to God and remember that He is in control.  And I know I’m not the only one who could use this reminder so here are 20 verses that help me deal with stress and anxiety.

150K+Proverbs 3:5-6 ”Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” 
Matthew 6:27 "And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?"
Romans 8:18 ”The pain that you’ve been feeling, can’t compare to the joy that’s coming.” 
Proverbs 12:25 ”Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down but a good word makes him glad.”
Psalm 62:8 "Trust in Him at all times, pour your hearts out to Him, for God is our refuge."
Matthew 6:34 ”Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.”

Isaiah 35:4 "Say to those who have an anxious heart, ‘Be strong; fear not!  Behold, your God will come with vengeance with the recompense of God.  He will come and save you."

Matthew 6:25-26 ”Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and you your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?
Romans 8:28 "And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."
Pslam 94:19 "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy."

Philippians 4:6-7 ”Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known to God.  7And the peace of God which suprasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Matthew 10:19-20 ”When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour.  20For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”
Psalm 118:6 ”The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”
Isaiah 41:10 ”So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Jeremiah 29:11 ”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope.”
Matthew 11:28-29 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Proverbs 31:25 "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future.” (NASB)
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you."
Romans 12:12 "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."


I’m constantly working on being patient and waiting on God’s timing because even though I know He know what’s best I struggle.  I struggle with being patient.  I struggle with waiting.  I struggle with not being able to control everything, and not having what I want when I want it.  But God knows what is best, so I must continue to strive to be patient and wait.  Wait for what he has planned.  
But I can’t do that alone.  I lean on God for strength and patience through prayer and His word.  And since I’m assuming I’m not the only one who doesn’t live on Cloud 9 full time, I’ve decided to share my list of verses that I turn to when I’m struggling…
