Once in Faith Eilertson’s life, worry became her friend. Growing up, she constantly worried about many things, especially the loss of a loved one. She also often worried about the difficulties their family would face. These pessimistic thoughts began to weigh on the teenager’s life. It invaded his mind.
Faith’s father worked as a marine. Therefore, she constantly feared that he would never come back one day. Then it got worse when she reached seventh grade and learned that her brother’s best friend had died in an accident. The tragic loss scared her even more.
Later, after six months, Faith’s grandmother also died. The loss triggered the anxiety she struggled with because she was so close to her.
“It invaded my mind, my actions, my thoughts, what I did, what I let myself do,” said the teenager.

So, it was not long, and Faith abandoned all her worries and anxieties to God.
“He [God] took care of me and He is ready to take it,” she said. “I could throw that burden on him.
And a specific scripture that God led to faith finally set him free. Watch what happened in the video below.
