Today children are struggling with anxiety more now then ever before. It is no longer just a teen or adult problem.
Kids suffering with anxiety can have a hard time getting to sleep. You can help them with these scriptures. They are a great coping tool that children can put in their coping toolboxes, to help beat anxiety when it arises in their day.
You can help them to memorize a verse or two or even print out a copy for them (coming soon) to read when they feel anxious.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:7
Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.
Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help yo. I will hold you up with my victorious right hands.
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord Your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid.
So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring it's own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.
Bonus bible verse:
I pray that God, the source of hope will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
