I have anxiety, and may even have high-functioning anxiety. High-functioning anxiety means that I can be in a crowd of people and not show the normal symptoms of anxiety, yet have my brain racked in stress and worry. Peace is not something I easily come by. I recently had a anxiety attack and through it all, God kept His words in my head and helped calm me. Afterwards, I grabbed my Bible and prayed, “God, give me Your everlasting peace.” Sure enough He lead me to plenty of verses and songs to give me His perfect peace.
Here are some verses He lead me to:
- Isaiah 9:6; all of chapter 26
- Matthew 5:9
- John 14:26-27; 16:33
- Philippians 4:6-7
- Colossians 3:15
- 2 Thessalonians 3:16
- James 3:18
- 1 Peter 5:7
God is my perfect peace, let Him to be yours! He is truly the Prince of Peace!
Stay crazy and be peaceful, Hannah
