Do you or your spouse suffer from anxiety? On part one of this two-part series we shared our insight as professional counselors, and as a couple who has not only suffered from it, but has also overcome anxiety.
We know all too well what anxiety can do to an individual and to a marriage. It can easily put a stranglehold on whoever it chooses to be its victim. As a married couple, and as a Jesus following couple, it’s so important to know that you hold the victory over anxiety. It may be big and loud and scary, BUT, it does not have to control your life. You can start breaking free from the chains of anxiety today!
Not only are there ways to equip your spouse to help you deal with anxiety, but there is also a lot in God’s Word to remind you what He has to say about it.
- 1 John 4:18 His perfect love can drive it out
- 1 Peter 5:7 You can cast it on the Lord
- Joshua 1:9 You can be brave and courageous
- 2 Timothy 1:7 God did not design you to walk in a spirit of fear and timidity
You do not have to stay stuck in anxiety, nor does your spouse. There is hope. There is healing. There is freedom to be found!
