What is anxiety? Anxiety is that feeling that nothing is quite settled. Anxiety may present itself as worry about an impending event or situation. You may be apprehensive or overly concerned and even fearful. This thing, whatever it is, sticks in your mind and it begins to take over your life when left unchecked. It is not a place that anyone wants to be, but a place that is easy to get to when you are thinking on the wrong things. Take a look at these 21 Bible verses about anxiety.

Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Dear “UNLOVED”,
I was so saddened for you and your situation. Please do not give up hope or despair. God NEVER allows things to happen He doesn’t have good in the end. I DO NOT know why God allows certain bad things in certain families but not without reason. God wants to use you in their lives somehow, definitely to show them Jesus. I hope you know Him as your Lord and Saviour. Pray for these “haters”, pray scripture over them, Gods Word will never return void. it may be days, weeks, even years but God will be working and we must have faith. It will be hard to wait on Gods timing, but boy is it PERFECT! HE HAS ALL OUR INTERESTS AT HEART!
