I started a relationship with someone like a few days ago. We are both Christians, and love the Lord. I had/have strong feelings for him, and all of a sudden today, I started getting anxiety attacks about being with him. I read somewhere that God is not the God of confusion, and I’m confused. I don’t know what to do.

Honestly, the only advice I can give you is to pray. Hard. If this is in God’s plan for you, He’ll make sure you know. I’ve struggled with anxiety in most areas of my life, usually when something new comes around. Give it some time. Chances are you’re just feeling anxious about this new, great thing in your life. 🙂

I agree with Writer, keep praying! Every relationship I’ve been in, I’ve been extremely nervous a couple days after we commit to each other. Give it a week or two to get used to everything, a relationship is a huge change! Maybe even talk to your boyfriend about it, making things open in a relationship is always ideal and if he knows about your anxiety he can (or should) pray with you about it and help you through it. Best of luck! I’ll be praying 🙂

You should most definitely pray, but I strongly believe this is not from God. I do not believe God would use anxiety to keep you from a relationship, or anything for that matter. He wants you to make decisions based on wisdom, not fear.

Ask God to uncomplicated your mind. Oftentimes we overcomplicate issues that are really very simple. Ask for God’s wisdom, expect to get it and he will give it to you. <But don't take my word for it, God himself promises it in James 1:5.

Remember to think logically and don't allow wild, unpredictable emotions to determine your thoughts.
