25 Bible Verses About Sadness and Worry
Today we will be dealing with 25 bible verses about sadness and worry. Sadness and worry are almost inseparable. The fear of the unknown can get a man worried and when a man is worried, sadness is not far from him. One thing we have failed to accept is the fact that worrying doesn’t solve anything. Worrying doesn’t bring a solution. Instead, it creates an impression that our problem is too big for God to solve. Sadness is the absence of happiness, joy, and goodwill. The moment a man lacks the will to be happy, sadness will creep into his life.
Sadness and worry will come in life. But God wants us to always be in charge. He has given us dominion over everything that was created. God knows that a time will come in our life when we will be devoid of happiness and joy. He knows a time will come that peace will be so far from us and this will get us worried and sad. That’s why he said in the book of Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. He doesn’t want us to be worried about anything. Instead, He wants us, through supplication and thanksgiving make our request known to Him.
Our God is able. He is mighty and capable. He never sleeps nor slumber. God is never tired of hearing our cries. And His plans for our lives are good and not evil to give us an expected end. Even as you walk through the midst of the storm, God is with you. As you Journey through the fire, it will not burn you. Are you worried or sad? comfort yourself with these 25 bible verses about sadness and worry.

5. Matthew 6:25-34
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
