Jeremy Camp - Anxious Heart

Jeremy Camp - Anxious Heart

Listen to “Anxious Heart” by Jeremy Camp. 

Pressure in the classroom, demands at the job site and 24-hour news channels that constantly tell us the world is ending. Those are enough to give even the calmest and most relaxed person a ton of anxiety. The world is full of stress-inducing things, but there is One who has a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Jeremy Camp’s song “Anxious Heart” is about someone who is currently undergoing a period of great stress, anxiousness and uncertainty. The song’s first verse accurately describes an individual in a panic state. Jeremy sings about a racing heart, hands that are trembling, the loss of breath and a mind spinning out of control.

Luckily, we don't have to live this way! We can turn to the One who is always faithful and a shelter amidst the storm.

The song’s chorus reminds us of what God can and does do during our time of need!

“You hold me together when I’m torn apart
And when my thoughts have run away too far
You’re the calm for my anxious heart”

The rest of the song mentions that ultimately God is in control of the situation, if we allow Him to be. Regardless of what happens in our lives or in the world around us, He is still working. 

Like the lyrics, the song’s video accurately depicts someone who needs God’s calm and peace. The young man in the video is dealing with a situation causing great anxiety. But during his stress-inciting episode, he periodically circles a church until he finally enters it, sits in a pew and opens a Bible. 

What a visually powerful video for a song about God’s ability to give us unbelievable peace and calm our anxious hearts! The song's message is desperately needed in our world today. 

Philippians 4:6 “In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
