The Lord Your God is with you

Last year when my oldest daughter was struggling with serious anxiety issues, her therapist gave her this scripture to hold close to her heart in prayer.  

Zephaniah 3:17, The Lord your God is with you
Zephaniah 3:17 - The Lord your God is with you

Isn't it perfectly reassuring? When I read it for the first time last year, I smiled.  These words wrap you up in God's perfect love.  We should hand over our worry to Him because He loves us.  

This scripture verse was wonderfully appropriate and calming for a ten year old wrapped up in anxiety and worry.   We found that it not only calmed her fears in her difficult moments, but it also soothed my soul as a mother struggling with the inability to prevent my child's suffering. 

What is your go to Bible verse when handling worry or anxiety?

Zephaniah 3:17
