Comforting Words for Anxious Hearts

We all worry. It’s human nature. And probably not the part of our nature we adore.

As uncomfortable as worrying can be however, there is a bright side. I think worry can be used to drive us closer to God, and teach us to trust him.

Sometimes, when I worry, I remind myself to take a few slow deep breaths and trust that no matter what lies ahead, God will take care of me, and of those I love.

Then I recall comforting bible verses, and even quote them out loud. I also pray, and sing or listen to worship songs that help calm my fears. Then I must make a choice to trust God. Trusting involves resting, letting go, and surrendering my will …

But not just to anyone. To God!

If you’re needing peace of mind about the future, or even about what lies ahead today or this week, please don’t worry. Instead, draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Talk to him, trust him, rest in his loving arms. Believe that you are dearly loved!

Dear God, no matter what happens today or tomorrow, or anywhere down the road, please help me not to worry. Instead, help me to trust your plan, and rest in your loving arms. Thank you for being such a good father, and for caring about what’s on my heart. Amen

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
