17 uplifting scriptures for anxiety as a homemaker

Save for later!

At some point in everyone’s life anxiety can creep in. Today we will look at scriptures for anxiety as a homemaker and refocus our thoughts on the truth of what God has said. Sometimes I find myself trapped in a worry spiral that I cannot seem to snap out of. In those instances, there are scriptures that have helped me recenter my focus on God’s truth and not on the lies that crept in.

If you find yourself anxious about what others think of you as a stay at home mom/wife, as a homeschool mom or as a homemaker in general, this is for you. Take a second and meditate on these truths. Write them on the tablet of your heart and do not soon forget who gave you your value.

We will look at three overarching questions and then the answers we find to those questions in scripture.

What do others think about me? What does God say about me?

Do you ever get anxious thinking about what other people might be saying about you? I can be guilty of that at times. It can be easy to begin believing the lie that your worth comes from the acceptance of others. The truth is, your worth and purpose don’t come from others, they were given to you by God. So what does God say about you? Let’s look at these scriptures for anxiety about what other people think:

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.” Proverbs 29:25

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.” Psalm 118:8

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 30:31

 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

A kindhearted woman gains honor,
    but ruthless men gain only wealth.
” Proverbs 11:16

Do my efforts really matter?

I catch myself wondering if my life really matters if I don’t have a 9-5 job. However, God graciously reminds me that worth comes from Him and not from a job status. Finding purpose in your work as a homemaker can be challenging in different seasons. I would encourage you to slow down in those seasons and refocus on why you found value in homemaking to begin with. If you struggle with wondering if what you do everyday really matters, these verses are for you my friend.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” Colossians 3:23

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

All hard work brings a profit,
    but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
Proverbs 14:23

“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” Philippians 2:12-13

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” Luke 1:45

Am I doing the right thing with my life?

Do you ever get anxious about making a decision? You get so worried about making the right decision that you begin to stress about it. I have found myself feeling that way about choosing to be a homemaker. I get anxious wondering if I am doing the right thing by choosing to stay home, if we will have enough money without me working, if I will miss out on using the skills I have to make the world better… my list of concerns creates a deep sense of anxiety in my heart. But again, scripture is ALWAYS true and God placed scriptures for anxiety about making decisions in the Bible just for me and you. He gives us reassurance of the path He placed before us. Be encouraged once again as you fulfill your incredibly important role in life with these verses:

“The wise woman builds her house,
    but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.”
Proverbs 14:1

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25

“God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.”
Psalm 46:5

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
    and he will establish your plans.”

Final thoughts

My one piece of advice to you: Go to the Lord and express your worries. Go to the Word and let the truth of scripture feed your anxious soul. God made you for the most beautiful purpose and Satan desires to convince you that your purpose isn’t enough. Don’t let him win. Replace your anxieties with truth today and be restored. Allow the scriptures for anxiety as a homemaker found above to help you refocus and thrive once again.
