Scripture Help for Your Anxious Teenage Daughter

Research reveals that more females deal with anxious thoughts compared to males. Results of a study conducted among high school students show that girl students struggle with anxiety more than boy students. Encourage your teenage daughter by sharing the following Scripture reflection for today:

“Casting all your care upon him; for He careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
We all deal with anxious thoughts from time to time. At times, they pile up and make us feel weary and depressed. If you’re struggling with anxious thoughts today, know that you don’t have to carry the weight of the worry on your own. God invites you to release all your care upon Him today. That’s right. The Bible says, “Cast all your care [anxiety] upon Him; for He careth for you.”

Let me encourage you to do 4 things with your anxiety today:

1. Release it.
To cast your care is to literally throw it over. You unload yourself and let God handle your anxiety and worry.

2. Release it all.
Every care matters to God. At times, family and friends belittle your worries and anxieties, but God won’t ever do that to you. He feels your pains and understands you. He knows your limits, and He is always there for you. This verse tells you to yield every anxious thought as it comes. No issue is too flimsy for God to take care of. He is attentive to your needs and desires to help you through each one of them.

3. Release it all to Him.
God wants you to yield every care to Him and leave it all with Him. At times, human instinct makes us doubt God. People fail us. They don’t always come through for us. And so we learn to fight our battles and stop entrusting things to other people. But God is trustworthy. He will fulfill His promise. He will take care of you and work things out for your good. So don’t doubt His care, and don’t doubt His capacity to solve your worries. He is the best Person to help you weather these anxious times. Do yourself a favor, don’t keep a bunch of worries to yourself and let God handle just some of them. Give every and all anxious thought to Him. He longs to relieve you of every worry and pain. He is always there for you.

4. Remember that He cares for you.
Some people resent God for allowing pain and suffering in their lives. They stop believing that He cares. Some even think that God is the One causing their pain and hate Him for it. But it is not God’s will that you suffer. His plans for you are good and perfect. This fallen world will bring sorrow and worries. The ruler of this world doesn’t want people to trust God. Satan doesn’t want you to have a fruitful relationship with God. And so, he sends these problems in your life.

That’s why, in times of anxiety, remember that God cares for you. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy. Don’t let him win by making you doubt God’s care and love for you. Keep trusting God though you may not see Him clearly in all these problems you’re facing. Believe His promise that He will never leave your side. People may stop caring for you, but God will remain loving and caring. Trust the wisdom and care of the One who knows you better than anyone else. He knows what you need, and He will provide it.

Daughter of God, give all your anxieties to the Father. He cares for you!

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. (Marianne Williamson) What is Forgiveness? When you've forgiven, is everything just lost and forgotten? Like a memory wiped off, the incident and the feelings that go with are never to return? The offense and hurt never happened? No traumatic, hurtful event took place? There's no history because no such thing took place? Is that what forgiveness is? Each of us deals with pain and offenses in different ways and in our own unique ways. At times, our journeys sort of connect and merge with others. At other times, we may handle the hurt in ways that are uncommon with other people. It may even seem like we're the only one who's facing that kind of experience and the way we resolve things may come off as strange for others around us. Across age groups, genders, and cultures, for
