I feel anxious over a particular teacher. She's very strict and petty and particular about details. She reminds me about an old principal. I already have a fear of authority.

Thx. But I'm just wondering how God's love for me has to do with my anxiety.

Perfect Love drives out fear (1 John 4:18). It's HIS perfect love. Perfect means you are covered with His protection from every direction, every angle any type of harm can possibly come.
Jasmine, your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life. No hell all together can take it out. So what can school possibly do to you to harm you?
Don't be deceived by those feelings. Don't listen to them, they are lying! Meditate on what your Lord has done for you already. Do this purposely. 1 John 4:18 does not say that His perfect love waits around till fears leave. It DRIVES them out. That means it takes FORCE. You need to purposely submit your thoughts to His truth instead of enemy's lies. Meditate on who you are in Him, on your identity of God's very own daughter. This is your identity, this is who you are.

Be blessed!

Also, sometimes God will show us things that trigger painful memories from the past that God wants u to lift up to him so He can heal u. If its triggering these thoughts/feelings from the past, maybe God allows this to be brought to light so that He can heal and touch this area of ur heart. Just some thoughts....

Isaiah 53:4,5

4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

Just a thought here. I was thinking about why we get so hurt (myself included BIG TIME!) when someone is "attacking" us (not physically of course). I think that in many cases we take it personally, meaning the other person just simply and plainly wanted us to hurt. This is how it seems. And this is why we even get hurt. It's because we "receive" what we perceive as reality. And this starts the whole chain reaction - an action starts fear, fear starts anxiety and on and on and on.
This "perspective", the way we perceive things kind of paints a huge target mark on our backs. Every time someone acts in a certain way, this action hits that target. Every single time. So what do we do? How do we change this? We remove the target mark! :-) How? By changing our perspective, the way we see things.
It helped me SOOO MUCH when U understood that people do not just hunt us trying to hurt in every possible way. They do that simply because they themselves are hurting inside. And the most ridiculous part is - we simply don't realize it! We don't realize it and they don't realize it. That's why things keep getting worse, anxieties build up, pile up on each other.
I got like that with my work because my boss keeps doing things you won't believe. I was driving to work every morning with tears running down my face and they weren't tears of joy.
So what am I doing? I am praying to God to give me the right perspective. He helped me see my boss as a very hurt person, whether he sees himself like that or anyone else does. I honestly CAN'T see him as such by my human efforts. I simply can't. But with His Grace it IS possible for me. Because He is in me I CAN extend the Grace that was given to me through Jesus to this man who simply keeps on being cruel and see him as a hurting person who DOES NOT KNOW JESUS and who simply needs grace, help and a prayer.
Jasmine, I am pretty sure that that teacher who is so strict and so demanding, she must be like that for a reason. I don't know her or the situation but if she is being unreasonable, unkind etc, could it be because something inside of her keeps her in "prison" of being like that? I do believe it is a big burden for her as well. She might not know it. I did not know how the freedom from "myself" felt like until I experienced it. It is the difference between night and day! But with Jesus it IS possible! With God all things are possible.

I pray for you, Jasmine, that the Lord touches you like only He can and FREES you in a way you have never experienced before! Go, Daddy! Move in Your daughter's life MIGHTILY, like no one can but YOU! Take Jasmine to new heights in You, let her soar like an eagle, FREE in her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! Thank You for pouring out Your Grace into her life so that she is being completely freed from any yoke, any burden, fear, anxiety at all, let the prison door bust wide open and every single chain of enemy’s lies BREAK NOW, so that Your Grace pours out through her into the world, that every life that comes in touch with hers will be turned around, changed to Your Glory! Let Your Son Jesus shine through her for all others to see and experience! In Jesus' Name! Amen!

Sorry I haven't responded sooner. My internet has been down.

Being God's beloved gives you an identity. This is what the Lord said of Jesus when He was baptized by John (Matt. 3:17). The rest of that verse says that He was WELL PLEASED. God is well-pleased with you, Jasmine. Because you have accepted His Son, you are His beloved and He is well pleased with you.

Like Astra said, "Perfect love casts out fear." At the root of every anxiety is fear. If you know your identity, you can take authority over anything.

Hope this helps.

I release God’s angels to go before you, Jasmine, to prepare the way for you, to prosper you, and to give you the advantage in difficult situations. I speak that they clear the way and eliminate threats that would come against you as well as threatening situations, traps, deceit, and unfavorable circumstances.
I declare that God’s angels will go with you, keep you, and protect you.
I bless your mind to expand and that you will enlarge your deposit of knowledge.
I bless you for information, facts, and knowledge to cling to the soil of your mind.
I bless you to have the ability to recall that information so that you may excel in tests and grade scores.
I bless you for Holy Spirit to work in you and minister through you this year unlike other years.
I bless you to become an effective witness for Christ, that your prayers be effective, that your discernment be sharp, and that you receive unction to stand for your convictions and be an effective light to those around you.
