An Unexpected Way to Find Peace When Anxious

March 17, 2021

Confession seems scary. I am totally one of those people who is slightly shaking every time. It is actually a great way to get rid of anxiety, although it may not seem that way at first glance. 

I have written about ways to overcome the stress we have all been facing lately, and this is the follow-up that I never expected to come. I just came out of school confession, and could not focus on my homework until I wrote this. 

We’ve all heard it thousands of times, but how often do we really look at confession as Jesus really forgiving us? After we are absolved of our sins, the huge weight of our sins is lifted off of us and we make things right with the Lord. 


Sometimes, extra stress and struggle is added to you when you haven’t gone to confession in a while. The further you stray from the Lord, the more that will happen. Confession brings you right back to Him.

Personally, I was very stressed today. It was overwhelming. Having just walked out of confession, though, the weight has been taken off of my shoulders even though I was stressed about unrelated things. I feel so much peace. 

Allow yourself to feel the peace only He can give.
