Hello, Small Bird Studios readers!
I’m so honored to be here with you today.
My name is Katelyn and I blog over at Inner Vision.
I’m a twenty-year-old Communications student in Milwaukee, WI. I’m also a writer, photographer, musician, and lover of all things social media.
But first and foremost, I am a Christian. I love Jesus Christ as my Lord && Savior.
I love life and all the adventures and beauty it brings in both the up’s and down’s.
But there is an aspect of my life that I don’t really talk about very often.
I struggle with anxiety.
I have never been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, but it is still something I struggle with everyday. I have irrational fears of things twenty-year-old’s just shouldn’t be worrying about.
When I enter a situation that really aggravates my anxiety, I can feel tension building up in my body. I get a totally unrealistic view of the situation at hand. I get restless and irritable. Sometimes I even feel like it’s harder to breathe.
I hate it. I hate when I feel like this and I used to think it was something I had to deal with completely on my own. I used to believe that I had no choice but to let my anxiety consume me. But then I realized, I’m never really alone. I have a guaranteed support system.
One place I can always find comfort for my anxiety: Scripture.
No matter what God throws our way and no matter how realistically or unrealistically we view the problem, He will never give us more than we can handle.
He will listen to our prayers.
No matter where we pray.
No matter when we pray.
No matter what we’re wearing.
No matter what we look like.
No matter what else is going on.
No matter how much money we have.
No matter how many times we pray for the same exact thing.
So I want to encourage you, no matter how big or small your concern:
1 Thessalonians 5:17
