When I was little, I would always write and rewrite Bible verses when I was feeling anxious. It quickly became a good coping mechanisim for me and lasted well into my teenage years.
I know that the Coronavirus is a scary thing, and the future feels very much filled with uncertainty, but it’s important for us to remember who is in control. I really enjoyed a reminder from Judah Smith that he shared to Instagram this past week.
“Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but rather from wanting to control it,” Smith wrote. “Anxiety doesn’t remove tomorrow’s suffering, it only removes today’s strength. Rest in who JESUS IS and give all fears and anxieties to him.”

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
“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.”
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never lett the righteous be shaken.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.”
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
2 Thessalonians 3:16
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.”
“Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace.”
