Scripture’s cure for the worry epidemic

worryHow can we live free from worry and experience peace?  A study of Philippians 4:6-7 teaches us how to discern worry from concern, use prayer to overcome worry, cultivate gratitude and thanksgiving and employ practical strategies for experiencing God’s peace.

True peace is found in the Bible.  We just have to believe.  Dr. Winfred Neely, author of “How to Overcome Worry”, spells out the antidote to worry to help you find the peace the Scripture offers.  Dr. Neely identifies the “troubled waters of worry” and focuses on the best Scripture on worry located in Philippians.

This short, informative book is encouraging and comforting especially for those who have a problem with worry and have not been able to find comfort.  The content, though most of us have heard it before, is worth having repeated and reinforced to keep us focused on God and His promises rather than on our own circumstances. Dr. Neely reminds us that God’s promises are true and shows us how to claim them and believe them.

Very helpful section on the pattern of prayer as well as comforting Scriptures are included in the book.  This will make a great gift for anyone who struggles with constant worry.  If you are a worrier, it’s a must-read.  You may also find it helpful to read in order to help others who trying to overcome worry.
