Here is to Day Two of bible quotes to read when experiencing anxiety. Today’s verse is actually difficult for me. It says “Don’t worry about anything .” Anything?! Sometimes that doesn’t even seem possible.
Now, I want to be clear. Anxiety disorders (which I have) are completely different than regular worrying and stress. Those of us who suffer from the disorder have limited control over when or how the anxiety will manifest. It is not possible to ever go without anxiety. HOWEVER! It IS possible to control our response to anxiety. We can choose to live through it. To push forward, even when it seems hopeless. And it’s ok to have days when you feel like you’re losing. In fact, you will have those days. Just remember that on the other side of pain, is peace. God will bring you through.
Cling tighter to him in those dark moments. He knows the pain. He knows everything about your anxiety.
So, for those of us with disorders, who experience frequent anxiety, the way we live out “don’t worry about anything” is by running to God and redirecting our thoughts to Him in combat. Remember you won’t always feel this way. It will get better.
I like it reframed that way – saying don’t worry about anything when you have an anxiety disorder ringer on able to just give it all to God so to speak sometimes you feel like your bad Christian but to say to run to God during those times that’s helpful thank you

I’m glad this helped you! It took me a long time to learn the difference between normal worrying and my anxiety disorder. I see that completely different, and it doesn’t mean we are bad Christians when we can’t just “not worry”. It is freeing to know that that is ok!
