Verses on Stress and Anxiety

Life has been pretty crazy lately. As my fall semester draws to a close, with exams just around the corner, I have been experiencing my fair share of stress and anxiety. My college assignments seem to be never ending and I'm finding it hard to make time for everything. Alongside this, I am in the process of trying to figure out my plans for next semester/year. Should I keep my babysitting job since I will be taking 20 hours of classes? Should I study abroad over the summer? Where should I live next year and with who? Should I go back to work at the movie theater while at home? Should I take an online class over the summer instead of attempting to do 20 hours next semester?

These are a few of the many questions keeping me up at night. I'm sure you all can relate, and have your own long list of "what if/should I" questions as well. It can be very confusing and stressful trying to answer them on your own.. and God doesn't want us to! He is holding out his arms to us, ready to take on our problems and sort them out for His good. He always has a plan for our lives. This is an important concept that I need to remind myself of more often. I can't get through this life on my own and my future will continue to be blurry if I do not lean on His words. That's why I have compiled this list of amazing verses dealing with anxiety, stress, and the future. His timing is always perfect; it just requires a lot of faith and trust. Let go and let God.

Matthew 6:25-34 // "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Jeremiah17:7-8 // "But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

Psalm 55:22 // "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you, he will never let the righteous be shaken."

Matthew 10:19-20 // "Do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."

Matthew 11:28-29 // "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

Psalm 121:1-3 // "I lift up my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip - he who watches over you will not slumber."

Psalm 34:4-7 // "I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them."
