Finding my Strength to Combat Anxiety

“I think it speaks to how terrifying life often is, particularly when we are taking risks or challenged by crisis. The life of faith is filled with the constant challenge to risk more to become our true selves” Rev. Winnie Varghese, Huffington Post .  Philippians 4:6 was mentioned on another blog. This bible passage spoke to me  because of the massive risk I am taking to become who I should be according to God’s path he has chosen for me.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

– Philippians 4:6

I do believe my move to Norway is part of God’s plan. I have prayed so many times and looked for His voice, a sign, or anything that will tell me not to do this.


I have no nightmares, no panic attacks, no voice. . . .  There is nothing saying this is the wrong choice. Challenging my anxiety disorder is part of His will and I believe it will bring me closer to God. I have to trust in Him that everything will be okay when my brain says otherwise. Easier said then done!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

– Proverbs 3:5

  1. In my life I have only learnt one thing for sure – so far: it is better to do than not to do. It is better to try and see things from that new top than rationalize afterwards why you never made that move. Which part of Norway will you be moving to?


      1. Interesting! My friend has lived and studied in Aalesund. She ended up in Oslo 🙂 This is often the case for foreigners)) If you have family there, it is definitely a great advantage. Hope, you will like it!
