There are so many people who struggle with anxiety, including myself and finding ways to manage it are more important than ever before. Anxiety disorders are effect more than 40 million Americans are are the most commonly diagnosed mental illness.  I am someone who has struggled with it and managed it through various medications, therapy and other sources hoping to get it under control. However, lately I’ve started to believe that anxiety is just part of living life here on earth and that no one is immune, although the levels of severity varies. 

Out of all the methods I’ve tried, there is nothing that has brought me more peace than prayer and reminding myself of what Jesus says about this topic in the Bible. These 5 verses have been so powerful in calming me down and helping me get re-centered when struggling with this. I hope they will bring you the same comfort they have brought me!
