posted by Linda Mintle

When Terror Strikes

Psalm 34:19–Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers them out of them all.

Proverbs  3:10-11--Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes, For the Lord will be your confidence. And will keep your foot from being caught.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9–We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed.

When You Feel Afraid

2Tim 1:7–For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

1 John 4:18–There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Psalm 91: 1-2–He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Shall abide under the Shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress. My God in Him will I trust.

(the entire Psalm)

Deuteronomy  31:6–Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be afraid of them; for the Lord Your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.

Isaiah 34:4–Say to those who are fear-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.

 

When You Worry

Matt. 6:35–Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

(verse 25) Do not worry about your life.

 

Phil 4:6-7--Be anxious for nothing. But in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts, and minds through Christ Jesus.

    The issue here is to make memories and learn to how have fun with your family. Just try some things as a group and see what all of you can do together to have some fun. Go to a baseball game, ride bikes, walk the dog, play at a park, play a game at night, have a movie night, etc. There is nothing to fear here–just work at finding things you can do together and start doing them!

    I have been counseled at church about depression and anxiety which has helped a lot because I am learning to fight my negative thoughts with scripture. One thing that came out in the counseling was my anxiety about my own and my families future. I am fearful that we have no common interests like most families and that this will pull us apart. I was asked what gives me life or makes me want to get up in the morning (dreams for my life) but could come up with nothing. Do I need to ask God to lead me and my family to this common dream? It scares me that I will waste these years with my husband and kids and then they will no longer want to be near us when they get older.
