Experiencing The Peace Of God In Every Situation
By Dr. Winfred Neely
Worry is something we all do, no matter if its about our home, family or job, we will worry about it. In this book Dr. Neely has offered some Biblical and practical instruction on how to overcome that worrying. His book is small but is packed with a lot of help and information that is needed for us to overcome worrying.
The book is divided into five sections titled: The troubled waters of worry, A bold imperative, The antidote to worry, A precious promise for hard-pressed people and Walking in freedom from worry. Each section offer insight into working through each area, he uses scripture verses to help in each section. He also, offers some short stories that are a great help. The book has three appendixes to help you in understanding the information. They include an appendix for a pattern of prayer, one with scriptures to aid in your battle against worry and the third is questions for you to think about.
Dr. Neely takes the subject of worry and how to deal with it to a better understanding than any other book that I have read on the subject. It was done in a way that was very easy reading and easy to understand. He done this without over burdening us with unnecessary words. You will get a new strategy for experiencing Gods peace. The book would be great to use in discussion groups or on your own. A great way to learn to stop worrying and to learn to trust God.

Terry5 Stars Out Of 5A Great simple book to help with worry!July 26, 2017TerryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Neely has written an excellent book that relies on a biblical foundation and methodology for overcoming worry. Perhaps the best part of the book is that Dr. Neely is willing to acknowledge that which many of us are not - Anxiety is a Choice! Never accusatory, Dr. Neely understands that we live in a world that is worry-driven. We live with menacing threats like terrorism, economic uncertainty, racial unrest, a breakdown of trust between law enforcement and the citizenry, gun violence, mass shootings, and more. However, Neely explains that we need to remember that we are to be in an intimate relationship with God and that when we are, habitual worry will vanish.
Neely provides a sure-fire way to maintain this intimacy. Do you know what it is? Prayer, of course! Neely defines and explains some components of prayer: Supplication, Thanksgiving, and Requests. He also gets very practical and provides his thoughts on biblical meditation, how to increase your prayer time, and Scripture to help along the way. This short book is equal parts powerful and practical. I highly recommend How to Overcome Worry by Dr. Winfred Neely.
I received acomplimentary copy of this book from Moody Publishers. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
contemplativereflections4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: How to Overcome WorryJuly 4, 2017contemplativereflectionsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0In "How to Overcome Worry," Winfred Neely encourages those who are worried and anxious to find true and lasting peace in God alone. Neely argues that it is natural to be concerned about what matters to us but when we become fixated on these concerns we begin to doubt God's character and sovereignty. The author focuses on Philippians 4:6-7 to illustrate that the key to conquering worry is by submitting everything to God who in turn grants supernatural peace. The two primary methods by which we can experience such peace is by immersing ourselves in prayer and Scripture. The author states that we can let God know our needs through prayer, supplication, thanksgiving, and requests. Furthermore, by meditating on God's Word frequently, we gain comfort knowing that God is the One who controls and sustains us amid life's trials. Neely asserts that fervent, regular prayer and biblical meditation serve not only as buoys to carry us through turbulent waters but also as safeguards that fend off panic and disturbances that press against us daily. At the end of the book, there are three appendixes including a sample prayer, a list of Scriptural passages to combat worry, and a set of discussion questions for personal or group study.
I would gladly recommend this short book to those who need to be reminded of the grace and peace that is available to all those who put their faith in God. Neely helpfully points out that Christians already experience peace with God through the work of Jesus but we also need the constant peace of God in our lives. Our Christian faith not only secures our eternal destiny but also provides hope for us to weather the difficulties of life. Instead of using our own wisdom and strength to shoulder the anxieties that burden us, we can follow Christ's example in surrendering ourselves to our loving Father who can and will carry us through each challenge that we face.

Brianna5 Stars Out Of 5How to Overcome WorryJuly 2, 2017BriannaQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Dont let the size of How to Overcome Worry fool you! Despite the books short length, Dr. Winfred Neely packs some powerful challenges into the pages. He incorporates personal examples into the text, but How to Overcome Worry is not merely 88 pages of story-telling.
How to Overcome Worry attracted me due to my own experiences with anxiety and depression. Throughout the book, Neely acknowledges the role of physiological components that contribute to anxiety. However, he places a strong emphasis on the spiritual components of the battle against anxiety. It is this component that is often overlooked, even amongst believers. Neelys argument is built upon a study of anxiety in Scripture and he delineates between healthy and unhealthy examples of being anxious. I appreciated the challenges in How to Overcome Worry; challenges that are often not explored in other books on worry and anxiety.
Finally, if readers choose to use How to Overcome Worry in a small group, Neely includes appendices with prayers, scriptures, and reflection questions.
