Tomorrow, October 1, is the release of my new book, Letting Go of Worry (Harvest House Publishers). Writing this book really challenged me because worry has been a natural default for me for so long. But the more I looked at the words of Jesus concerning worry, I realized, this is not His plan for me or any of us. He wants us to let go of worry and give it to Him.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati found that 85% of all worries never even happen. Yet, every day we find hundreds of opportunities to worry about something. We worry about work, family, health and more. Time and again we take normal situations of life and turn them in to worry moments.We have become so accustomed to worry that we rarely consider why it has such power in our lives. We have resigned ourselves to the fact that there is so little we can do about most things. Worry at least feels like we are doing something. Yet all we are doing is making ourselves miserable.
So in this book I explore:
1) The spiritual roots of worry
2) What to do when anxious thoughts arise
3) How to have peace about health, job, money, and relationships
4) Practical ways to cultivate a truly worry-free life
5) The biblical secret to lasting contentment
I trust it will help you as much as it did me. Peace!
