Causes of Worry

Overcoming Anxiety with Faith: 

A Personal Journey Introduction: Anxiety can both cause and be caused by “Bad” thoughts. 

Worrying is the most common symptom of most forms of anxiety. Second, obsessive-compulsive disorder is caused by unwanted thoughts. Worry is worrying about the future. Rumination is characterized as having negative thoughts about something that happened in the past. Both cause you to think over and over again about how badly you did something and could beat yourself up that are unproductive thoughts. 

Anxiety and Faith: 

Both worrying and rumination stem from a spirit of fear. They involve having intrusive, repetitive, prolonged, and uncontrollable thoughts about future or past experiences, contributing to symptoms of anxiety. Fear and worry go hand in hand, projecting into the future and detracting from trust and faith. 

People entangled in negative thought cycles are more prone to anxiety and depression. 

Understanding the Relationship Between Thoughts and Emotions: 

The thoughts we entertain play a crucial role in determining our mood and the emotions attached to them. When we live by faith, we believe that God has everything under control. Choosing worry over trust is a sin of distrusting the promises and power of God. 

Scriptures such as Second Timothy 1:7 emphasize that God has not given us a spirit of fear but one of power, love, and self-discipline. 

Practical Ways to Overcome Anxiety: 

Instead of allowing worry to consume us, it is essential to turn to prayer and surrender our burdens to God. Journaling can be a helpful tool in expressing our feelings and relinquishing control to the Lord. By confessing our fears and trusting in Him, we can experience the peace that surpasses all understanding. 

Scriptural Guidance for Anxiety Relief: 

Various Bible verses offer comfort and encouragement for those struggling with anxiety. Verses such as Jeremiah 29:11, Matthew 6:34, and 1 Peter 5:7 remind us to cast our anxieties on the Lord, knowing that He cares for us. 

Psalm 46:10 and Proverbs 3:5-6 encourage us to trust in the Lord and acknowledge His presence in our lives. 

A Personal Testimony: 

“I think I’m going to die,” said Mary. That’s what I thought when I woke up from a sleepless night, consumed by worry about various aspects of my life. Despite feeling like a failure as a Christian, seeking medical help and relying on prayer helped me navigate through my anxiety. While the journey was challenging, discovering a newfound perspective through faith and scripture has brought me peace and hope. 


Overcoming anxiety is a journey that requires faith, prayer, and a willingness to surrender control. By recognizing the relationship between worry, rumination, and fear, we can turn to God for strength and peace. Utilizing the power of prayer, journaling, and scriptural guidance can help alleviate anxiety and restore trust in God’s plan for our lives.
