These 3 tips on beating anxiety are super helpful and can be applied to many life situations.

But it’s important to understand before diving in that the Bible is not a self-help book, and shouldn’t be used as one.

This is a mistake I often make – finding scriptures in an attempt to calm my heart and mind, without embracing the transformative change of my will, character and desires that comes from a personal walk with God. Being close to God changes lives, he doesn’t merely improve them.

Be humble

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. [7] Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 

1 Peter 5:6-7 NIV

Stop trying to impress everyone

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. [39] She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. [40] But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” [41] “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, [42] but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:38-42 NIV

Embrace the future

I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven.

Ephesians 3:14 ERV
