Anxious for Nothing

Anxious for Nothing

Karen’s mom asked her to do something that seemed impossible—to go next door and invite the new neighbors to church.

Karen’s hand shook ask she reached for the doorbell. Meeting new people made her so nervous! But as she rang the bell, she prayed, “Dear Jesus, be with me as I meet this family. Help me to be calm and guide my words as I speak.”

Jesus gave her a sense of peace, and it was easy for her to welcome the family and invite them to church.

We all go through times when we feel nervous. What situations make you feel this way?

Whether you’re nervous for the first day of school, a doctor’s appointment, or a recital, you can always call upon Jesus, and he will be there to help you.


Dear Jesus,
Give me peace and comfort when I feel nervous.

 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
