    Publisher's Description

    Scripture’s cure for the worry epidemic

    Do you struggle with worry or anxious thoughts on a regular basis? Does your mind get fixated on the same concern over and over? Do you know you should stop worrying but repeatedly fail to do so?

    How to Overcome Worry presents a biblical and practical strategy for this exact problem. Dr. Winfred Neely, who has experienced his fair share of anxiety-inducing circumstances, walks you through Philippians 4:6–7 to help you:

    • Understand the difference between concern and worry
    • Use prayer as a means of grace to overcome worry
    • Cultivate gratitude and thanksgiving as an antidote to worry
    • Navigate changing seasons and circumstances without falling into worry
    • Employ practical strategies for experiencing the peace of God

    Worry is one of the top issues in our world today, even among Christians, and this concise and biblical approach will offer real solutions. In His Word, God tells us to stop worrying, pray about everything, and expect His peace. This is a true promise of Scripture, and this book will help you to lay hold of it.

      How To Overcome Worry

      Everyone deals with worry and stress. It's part of human life, but it isn't a part of God's plan for our lives. In this books, Dr. Winfred Neely gives his advice for overcoming worry in a worry-filled and anxiety-creating world.

      First of all, concern and care for others and ourselves is healthy and biblical. However, it becomes unhealthy when it turns into worry. This is because, not only is it detrimental to our physical health, but also to our spiritual health, as worry and anxiety are rooted in unbelief that God is taking care of things. While Neely notes that there is no on/off switch for worry, he gives a bunch of Bible verses and tips for working past your worry and being able to put all of your trust in God. Foremost, Neely stresses the importance of prayer. Bringing all of your concerns to God allows you to talk through the problems with Him, and be able to give the problems over to Him. Prayer is the key to conquering worry. Prayer is supposed to have an answer, and when we pray, we can expect peace from God.

      I really enjoyed this book. I loved the verses and advice Neely gives throughout. I ended up doing a ton of journaling and finding it to be really helpful. He used great metaphors and imagery to explain his concepts. Each chapter, as well as the end of the book, gave helpful verses, tips on how to put into practice the methods of stopping worry, guidance for prayer, recommended books, and questions for reflection and discussion. I have this book 3/5 stars.

      Do you live a life of ease with everything falling into place perfectly, or do you have things in life that dont always work out the way you hoped, causing upset and worry? If your answer is the latter, this is the book for you.

      The author believes we live in a time period full of worries that modern life is plagued by worries that range from ISIS attacks to staying safe while out shopping. The pressures of life today are great indeed.

      Dr. Neely suggests the way we get rid of worry is by not giving in to it, but instead we must turn to God. Additionally, when speaking to Him, include something you are thankful for.

      Dont fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of Gods wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Its wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. --Philippians 4:6-7The Message (MSG)

      By faith we need to turn our heart, mind and will to God, trusting that He will rid us of anxiety, if we truly give it to Him. Anxiety creeps in when we take our eyes off of God and try to shoulder our burdens ourselves. We must literally take our burdens to God and leave them with Him to escape anxiety. Dr. Neely also urges us to pray--pray about everything--that is the way to conquer worry.

      . pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. --1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 English Standard Version (ESV)

      This is a small book that is very easy to read, and is packed with good recommendations to combat worrying. It is truly a treasure trove of golden pieces of advice that have stood the test of time for helping and is easy to understand. Dr. Neely has written something that will touch the heart of anyone who has ever had a worry in their life. I highly recommend this 5-star book.

      Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

      .Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. --Matthew 6:26-29 New King James Version (NKJV)

      We certainly live in a time when many worry and have great anxiety, including many Christians. Neely considers worry a serious issue and has written this little book to help us overcome it.

      Neely reminds us early in the book, "In the New Testament, worry is the sinful response of the human heart and mind to real difficulties and problems in life." (29) Worry is an expression of unbelief, he says, and "...habitual worry is a trait of someone who is not in an intimate relationship with God (Matt. 6:31-32)." (30)

      That really got my attention. Worry is a serious issue! Neely takes "be anxious for nothing" very seriously. But he also gives us great instruction on triumphing over worry. His suggestions are not easy actions. We must trust God, expecting His peace in the midst of problems. He reminds us of the enabling power God provides, of the necessity of taking everything to God in prayer. We must be making the choices to exercise faith and trust in God, requiring living in the power of the Spirit.

      Neely has included useful Appendixes. The first is a good one on prayer while the second gives a number of Scriptures for suggested meditation. The third includes questions for individual reflection or group discussion.

      This is a short but powerful book. Neely doesn't hold back in reminding us of the seriousness of the sin of worry. I am impressed with his instruction. He uses stories from his own life as illustrations.

      I recommend this book to those who are willing to face their worry and begin the serious task of conquering it. You will find a great deal of help in this little book.

      I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media. My comments are an independent and honest review.

      I worry. A lot. When I saw this small book available for review, I knew I had to review it. I needed it, and a lot of other people need it.

      It isn't a big book, coming in at 109 pages, and measuring smaller than the average book also. But don't let that fool you. Worry is a big topic, but the author fit a lot about it in this small book. He starts out the book discussing worry, and then goes into practical and Biblical ways to combat it.

      The book ends with three appendixes: The first is a pattern for prayer, the second contains Scriptures to combat worry, and the third has questions to consider.

      This is an easy to read book that has some very valuable and Biblical help for combating worry. I found it very helpful, as will anyone else will who struggles with worrying.

      I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

      Incredible Resource to Tackle Worry in a Scriptural Way

      Read that title -How to Overcome Worry: Experiencing the Peace of God in Every Situation.Isn't that an incredible thing to think about -.that we can actually have that peace if we are willing to surrender our thoughts to the Lord? It blows me away.

      Though short and easy-to-read, Dr. Winfred Neely has managed to saturate the pages of his book with truth. Using ideas and principles clearly laid out in God's Word, Dr. Neely provides a straightforward and scriptural approach for dealing with the problem of worry. His advice is direct - but always backed up by Scripture. The reader is continually pointed back to the Lord - not towards self. This is anything but a "self-help" book!It's a with God's help book!

      In the book, Dr. Neely encourages those who battle with worry and anxiety to turn to prayer, and to anticipate a response! This type of prayer-life results in the peace we are all so desperately craving. He writes, "Peace in the midst of life's difficulties is the direct result of grateful, faith-based praying." When we direct our eyes upward instead of inward and start to trust God, we're able to experience that peace that passes understanding. (And isn't that what we all want? Doesn't that sound so much more inviting than a head full of worry?!)

      Packed with memorable gems and words of wisdom, your copy of this book will likely be underlined, highlighted, dog-eared, and read many times over. Don't miss the resources the author has included in the back of the book including scripture that deals with worry and terrific discussion questions.
