These 10 verses have gotten me through some dark times! For those days when juggling multiple kids, laundry, cooking and just managing a shower seem to be more than you can take, these anxiety Bible verses for new moms are ideal. I’d encourage you to write these on a piece of paper and place them throughout your home, or print out our handy scripture cards to tuck into your Bible, on your bathroom mirror or even into a frame in your home. I love this simple NIV Study Bible and journal to help me keep track of what I have read, and make notes about what I am feeling each day.
While these verses bring great comfort, they are not the cure for true postpartum depression and anxiety issues. Scripture reading and prayer can definitely help ease anxiety, but never hesitate to seek out counsel, medical intervention or help from those around you when the feelings begin to creep in. It is never too early to seek help to deal with the emotional and mental health issues we all face in our life at different times.
