Inside: Bible Verses on Stress. I was just looking up articles on self care for christian women for a ladies event I’m planning. I couldn’t believe how most of these articles focused on how stressed women are! Ladies, we need to memorize these bible verses on stress!

Most of you know my story. I don’t write about fairy tales and rainbows. I share how to cling to Jesus during hard life trials. God’s word is the anchor to our souls.

Focus. That’s the only way I know how to describe our walk with God when stressed or in a hard season of life. Focus.

I know some of your story too. I get your messages and cry with you in your heart ache. I pray for each of you. 


Stress comes. It sneaks up on you like a lion on it’s hunt for something to devour.


“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8


Stress, in small doses, may be good to keep us motivated and perform better. But in high doses it can wreck havoc on our minds, bodies and spirits. 

Some of the effects of chronic stress are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety (bible verses for anxiety)
  • Sleep Problems
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Skin Problems
  • Digestive Problems
  • Weight Problems
  • Pain of Any Kind
  • Heart Problems
  • Thinking/Memory Problems 

Most stress is in our control and we can manage it in a better way that glorifies God. Click To Tweet

I’m a homeschool mom of 2 kiddos and I’m recently separated from my husband. Finances, the deep hurt from my broken marriage and balancing it all stresses me out!! 


I went from being a frantic hot mess to a God is in control – less of a frantic hot mess. LOL

How? God’s word.


All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17



Bible Verses on Stress


When I start to feel the stress rising, I’ve learned to immediately hit God’s word up for bible verses and scripture passages to speak over my current situation. 

Reminding myself of who I am in Christ really helps me as well. 

I don’t wallow in self pity, crying and whining for hours, allowing the enemy to overwhelm my thoughts and my heart with suffocating negativity. (Been there, done that, it doesn’t help anything) Taking control over our thought life is vital! 


“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12


How do you control your thought life and ease the stress levels in your life?

With God’s word! Hebrews tells us that God’s word is alive and active. It penetrates into the soul and spirit. 

That’s why I love LOVE scripture writing so much! God’s word, spoken and written, over our lives has power that can break the chains that bind us! God’s word will renew, restore and redeem us!

She includes reccommendations for some of her favorite journals and pens for scripture writing, and an explination of how this practice brings freedom!
