                 God created you for a special purpose

            B. Anxiety & Worry


Find comfort and peace through these scriptures as they promise you hope and a future. You can be free from worry and anxiety by meditating on God's Word and casting your cares on Jesus.


"Therefore, I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and  he body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air for they neither sow or reap                      nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?"  (Matthew. 6:25-27)

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things (provisions) will be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for  tomorrow will worry about its own things." (Matthew 6:33-34)

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all  your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6)


"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.  And the peace of God, with transcends all   understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-           7)


'Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My  yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart and you will find   rest for your soul. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."   (Matthew 11: 28-30)

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you."  (1 Peter 5:7)


"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do    not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."  (John 14:27)


"Let the peace of God rule in your heart......"   (Colossians 3:15)


C. Bitterness/Unforgiveness/Anger


            Bitterness, anger and unforgiveness are hatred, which is actually a lack of love.

          It is nearly impossible for somebody who is flowing in the love of God to hold onto hateful things inside! Get grounded and  rooted in the love of Christ, if you want His love to flow through you! The following scriptures will help.

            "And I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it  will be opened to you. For everyone  who  asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to  him who knocks it will be opened." (Luke 11:9-10)

            "A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another."              (John 13:34)

           "I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.   (John 10:11)

          Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  (John15:13)

           "But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the  heart of man, the things which God has prepared   for those who love him."   (1 Corinthians 2:9)

           "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should  be called the sons of God..."   (1 John 3:1)

You aren't loved for what you've done... but because of who you are! Even before you came to Christ, He loved you so much that He died for you!

           "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we         were still sinners." (Romans 5:8)

           "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his            only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him."   (1 John 4:9)

            "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear...."  (Psalm 118:6)


            "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

               (II Timothy 1:7)


            "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you,     yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." (Isaiah 41:10)
