We all have our doubts and fears from time to time. Doubts tend to sneak up on us when we are at our most vulnerable. In times of overthinking, we begin to question everything we have always trusted to be true. Is God really there? Can He hear me? Where do I go from here? When in doubt, here are fifteen verses to help you gain control of your life, revive your faith in God, and find courage within yourself.

John 15: 16
"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you."
"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done; And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
To overcome the burden of doubt, consistently strengthen your faith through prayer and study. Before you get lost in fear of the unknown, remember why you believed and had faith in the first place. Find that faith again and trust in the many good things to come. Through faith, doubt and anxiety can lessen, and life becomes a blissful journey.
