Americans especially know about living in perpetual anxiety. According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women. "The news about our anxiety is enough to make us anxious," says Max Lucado. But there's a prescription for dealing with it. In Anxious for Nothing, Lucado invites readers into a study of Philippians 4:6-7, the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet, according to Amazon: "Do not be anxious about anything, 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." With His help you will learn to face the calamities of life. You'll learn how to talk yourself off the ledge. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you will learn to view bad news through the lens of sovereignty; to discern the lies of Satan and tell yourself the truth. You will manifest a gentleness that is evident to others. Anxiety comes with life. But it doesn't have to dominate your life. Come and join us for this summer study in June!
