8 Stress-Relieving Bible Verses



Stress! We've all had to deal with some type of stress in our lives at least once or twice. For some people like myself, stress is a constant occurrence. Stress can take on many forms such as health, jobs, relationships, money and more. Sometimes it's hard to deal with, at times almost impossible to deal with. However, God gives you comfort and never leaves your side. He is always there for you and so is his word. Here are some tried and true Bible verses that I turn to when I need some stress relief.



Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Psalm 61:2 "From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

Matthew 11:28-30  "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Romans 8:28  "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Psalm 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." 

Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Psalm 56:3-4 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me."

John 14:27 " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

God's word is so comforting. He gave us these words to live by and to help us. God's word is a road map that will allow us to reach our heavenly destination if we just follow it. When you read these words of comfort, you can feel that stress just melt away. I encourage you to grab a cup of coffee or tea and get lost in God's word. I assure you that you will feel his loving embrace if you just allow him to speak to you. He will relieve that stress!
