In life we will all experience worry. Every single one of us. The enemy uses fear, worry, and anxiety as weapons to keep us from experiencing the life God intended. Such emotions can overwhelm us to our very core and leave us paralyzed.
The Bible is full of worriers. But the Bible gives those worriers a loud and clear message: God is our rock and refuge. He is always available to give us the strength we need.
Meditating on God’s Word can help us break free from the cycle of worry and anxiety. We pray this gathering of scriptures about worry will help calm your spirit and lead you to lean on God’s promises when life is uncertain.

“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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
