This week as part of the Faith Series, I’m sharing one of my favorite bible verses. I have previously shared that I struggle with anxiety. Leaning into my faith has been so crucial for me to overcome my struggles and find peace.
1 Peter 5:7 – “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you”
Naturally, I gravitate toward bible verses that have to do with overcoming anxiety, fear, and worry. This verse really stood out to me because it showed me that I can take my fear and give it to God who deeply cares for me. He will carry our worries for us. This is a great reminder for me when I start worrying and having anxious thoughts. It helps me to release them and stay present, knowing that God will handle it and everything will be alright.
This is still a hard thing for me to do sometimes, but I try to remind myself of it often. I think this is an example of learning to trust God and what He has planned for me. I was never really in control anyway, and this brings me solace!
