When it comes to anxiety, depression, and stress-related illnesses, America is the frontrunner. Thankfully, there's a practical prescription for dealing with these issues.
Anxious for Nothing, from New York Times bestselling author, Max Lucado, provides a roadmap for pastors to help people in their church battling with and healing from anxiety.
In this dynamic five-week church campaign, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God's treatment plan for anxiety found in the most underlined verse in the Bible, Philippians 4:6-7:
Be anxious for nothing, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
As you follow the Biblical prescription - celebrating God's goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditating on good things - you will experience God's peace. This is a peace that "transcends all understanding" and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears.
With the heart of a pastor and his poetic storytelling and homespun humor, Max will help you:
While anxiety is a part of life, it doesn't have to dominate your life. With God as your helper and his promises at your side, you can sleep better tonight and smile more tomorrow. You can talk yourself off the ledge and view bad news through the lens of God's sovereignty. You can discover a life of calm and develop tools for combating the onslaught of anxiety.
