Lolo Jones has officially completed her three week fast that kept her off of social media earlier this year and is sharing Scripture while letting people know how to lessen their stress.

"Lighten your anxiety. When Prayers go up, Stress goes down," Jones captioned a photograph of herself on Instagram with the scripture 1 Peter 5:7 which reads, "Cast all your worries on him, because He cares for you."

Jones, the 32-year-old Olympic hurdler and bobsledding athlete, has been vocal about her Christianity for some time and did the same when announcing her decision to announce her period of consecration to Instagram followers earlier this year.

"I want all that God promised for me in 2015," Jones wrote. "21 days of prayer and Fasting."

The Christian athlete invited others to take part in the fast with her.

"Join me as I dedicate the first part of my year to hearing from God," Jones wrote. "I encourage you as well to set aside some earthly distraction for 21 days to hear more from the Lord. #socialMediaDetox #prayer #fasting #alreadyCravingaBurgeriRebukeYouSatan."

This is not the first time that Jones shared her faith on the social networking website. Jones previously took to Twitter to let followers know that she was blessed after tithing following a great deal of criticism on the social networking website.

"Pumped! Yet again God showed me a cool sign," Jones previously tweeted in 2013. "I tithed on Sun. and by Mon. had a blessing 10 fold. If u've never given,step in faith Luke 6:38..It was a very cool moment. Had to share."

After one person revealed their own struggle to Jones, she provided the individual with encouragement and a scriptural reference.

"2 Cor. 12:9-10 '... for my power is made perfect in weakness,'" Jones previously tweeted. "Stay strong friend God has showed up biggest when I was lowest."
