Bam! A Scripture to Help Ease Anxiety

Yesterday was the 4th of July. After having a wonderful time visiting with my family, I ended up spending part of the evening in the bathroom with the water running crying and repeating this scripture to myself after someone set off fireworks in my parent’s neighborhood that literally sounded like a canon going off. I was hoping that the water was going to be loud enough to drown out both the boom of the fireworks & the sound of me crying so that my son wouldn’t hear me. Seeing the physical and emotional pain that I've endured in the recovery process from the accident has unfortunately negatively affected him as well...

BAM!

The last thing I heard as the car struck me at 48 mph before I woke up on the ground in a pool of blood in the worst pain that I have ever experienced was a loud bump, kind of like a cabinet door slamming closed. I now suffer from PTSD as a result of the accident. It’s better than it was initially, but I still have moments of anxiety & last night was definitely one of them.

I try to stay positive as much as possible, but I’d be doing the world a disservice if I didn’t share that I do also struggle at times. 2 Timothy 1:7 has given me a lot of comfort during this time of recovery when the anxiety takes over.

“For God has not given [me] a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

Speaking the Word over your life and in the midst of difficult situations not only helps to give you a sense of peace, but it also orders the Universe to line itself up in obedience to God's promises for us.

When the anxiety kicked in yesterday, I went into the bathroom, closed the door, turned on the water and tried to breathe deeply as I silently repeated this scripture to myself over and over again until I began to feel some relief.

I know from personal experience that it's not always easy to see, feel and believe God's Word when we are in the midst of struggles. There are very real physical, emotional and psychological implications to the anxiety and depression that we experience, but incorporating God's Word into your daily life can be one aspect of a plan to help address them.

Don't feel like you are failing if you seek help in the form of counseling. I praise God for being able to find a counselor who has been able to help me process through this traumatic experience. I highly recommend seeking counseling if you are experiencing anxiety or depression, there's absolutely no shame in it. At the end of this post I've included a list of resources where you can find assistance as well as a site with 15 Scriptures to Help Calm an Anxious Mind.

It may not always feel like it, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and it will get better. I pray that if you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, that you’re able to get the help & support that you need & that this scripture can be a comfort to you as well.

“For God has not given [me] a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
