He Is Near

Anxiety is identified as a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease. One in five adults are affected by an anxiety disorder, and women are twice as likely to have anxiety disorders than men.


I’m not going to lie, this week has been rough for me. I have been on the struggle bus with my anxiety but only the close people around me such as my husband and a few close girlfriends really know that. For those of you who don’t know me, I can hide behind a smile really easily but on the inside, I’m filled with overflowing thoughts that leave me anxious and depressed. Anyone else ever been there?

Joshua 1:9 says, “Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “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.”


If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or any other mental disease, you are NOT alone! Me too- I am with you girl- I feel your pain and your struggle, and Jesus does too! He went through the ultimate pain on that cross and died for our sins so that we could LIVE! I am praying for you and I encourage you to seek out his Word because it heals!
