    I’ve been so stressed out, angry, worried, and it was to the point my whole body would shake uncontrollably. I went to church today and prayed to God to help me let go and relax. My pastor took my hand and that was the hardest I’ve cried in a long time. I bottled all of it up and it was overflowing. Man! I feel better lol. God is good and everything will be alright.

  • Sheilah says:

    It’s hard not to worry about my children, even though they are grown. They grew up privileged, with the best of everything, but chose to follow Satan instead of Christ. I recently lost my only son to drugs & alcohol and my 2 daughters are also self destructive, and headed in the same direction. I have done all I can do, and know how. I try to give it to God, but my heart hurts so much for them, all I do us worry. Especially about my little 10yr. old grandson, to the point that I can’t even sleep at night.

    • Christine Abraham says:

      praying for your family and for you too!

    • Sara says:

      Through prayer and faithfulness to God’s glory, the Bible assures us that God will care for your heart and help you get through the sadness of your situation. Only through God will comfort and peace be yours. Bless you, Sheilah.

  • Yolanda Shelton says:

    I am fighting a battle that I no I can’t win, the spirit let me no it’s not mine, it’s his. Family off track, children off track. And the enemy is out to kill, steal, and destroy. So I no I’m not suppose to pray n worry about a situation, but I suppose pray n leave it with God. And trust that he will work it out for the good. Seems like I’m the one that’s always trying to hold things together in my family, but be the one to get hurt all the time. Reading all these scriptures lets me no that God requires more from me. And he want me to let go of the worries and pray more so I want have no worries. The scriptures were very uplifting to me

    • Anchor yourself to Jesus as you ride the storm. Praying for you Yolanda.

      • Josie says:

        I am troubled deeply by family issues. I try to leave it with God but it is hard to stop worrying. As a new Christian I have to become stronger in my faith and continue to pray and ask for help in bearing all I must bear. The verses helped. Thank you.

        • Being Christian- new or seasoned- does not mean we’re without trouble. However it does mean that we turn to Scripture and to God during our trials. Praying for you Josie in your season of difficult family issues.

    • Lynn says:

      I too feel some relief by reading all 50 of these verses reminding us God is with us. I know this and yet I still worry only to pray for forgiveness again & again. I too bear the weight when things aren’t right and feel I need to have all the answers and fix the problems. I have to remember its not for me to fix and go back to praying to god to do so. I constantly seek his guidance with an open heart.

      Thank you all for your prayers & encouraging words. So far all my tests came out great. Just a few more to do. My dr seems to think the heart troubles may be connected to stress. This is a huge relief but it isn’t solving my problem with worry. Im trying to give all these stresses & issues to God but the worry creeps in. Is my faith not strong enough? I have a puppy with a fever for an unknown reason. Ive given it to God, but the worry is still there. Am I not truly giving it to him? I don’t know what to do

  • Deborah-Dale says:

    Hey, my name is Deborah-Dale from Trinidad and Tobago. I am a mother of two and I am married for the past four plus years. Worry comes with being a mother, but also being a human. A message was preached or should I say a lesson was taught in discipleship class a few weeks ago about worrying and I took to that immidiately. I have to will myself not to worry about things and I have seen God do a great work in one week. I thank you to the person who put these scriptures up. They are an added help. Being an intercessor one needs to know the word and also not worry cause it is a grave contradiction. Have a blessed day all.

    How timely is this post…. Has God ever tried to get your attention?? Well I am pretty slow and sometimes it takes Him showing me something time & time again. Sooo, this morning, I was reading Jesus Calling for Feb 5(yes a day behind) and one sentence…”The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust me no matter what.” Then checking my emails I get a devotion from Wisdom Hunters and yesterday’s devotion was titled ” He Cares” it can be found here http://wisdomhunters.com/2012/02/05/he-cares/
    And the next email right under that one is an email with this post…. I thank the Lord for his constant reminder this morning that HE HAS IT ALL UNDER CONTROL!! Oh How He Loves Me!!!
