    Win the Battle Over Worry and Anxiety!

    Have you ever been told that if you worry or have anxiety that you are just sinning and not trusting God? Have you ever been made to feel guilty if you ever worry about important people and/or events in your life? Have you ever been upset with yourself because you are anxious about something but in your heart you are desperately trying to trust the Lord and seek Him? If you've said "yes" to any of these questions, then this book would be a great resource for you.

    We as people are under intense pressure in this day and age that we need to portray ourselves to the world as if we "have it all together." I've heard people go as far as questioning another's (or even their own) salvation based solely on the fact that they have anxiety. It's encouraging to read something that combats that and gives encouragement from the Bible. Throughout the book the author shares the story of Joshua as he and the Israelites prepare to enter The Promised Land. Along the way she offers wisdom and encouragement to those who may be suffering from worry and anxiety in their lives. She confesses that she herself has suffered from crippling anxiety and panic attacks in her life. Although she is in a much better place in her life currently, she still has to use the tools she used in the book to help her through when worry strikes.

    While the first part of the book was more about worry and anxiety, as the author continues through Joshua's story it becomes more about obeying the Lord, repenting of sin, and appropriately "carefronting" others who are struggling with sin. I personally wish the author would have gone deeper in certain areas, but I believe she touched on a lot of important topics that the church often ignores and/or doesn't handle helpfully. Coming from someone who has suffered with anxiety in their life, it'snot helpful to tell someone that their anxiety is sinful and that they aren't trusting God the way they should be (enough to cause them to question their own salvation). Trust me, they already beat themselves up enough on their own. If you want to reach someone who is suffering with anxiety, reach out andencourage them with God's Word (not show them how badly they are failing), and comfort them with the knowledge that "nothing is a surprise to God" and that we can rest in the fact that God is outside of time and already knows our outcomes. Pray with and for them. You don't have to be silent, but being judgmental won't help anybody.

    Simply for the fact that I am a highlighter and note-taker in studies, my recommendation is for the print version of this book if it's possible for you. I myself did a lot of highlighting in this book, but because it wasn't the print version I couldn't add any little notes. It's enough that I intend to re-read the print version of the book later so that I can do just that.

    Don't let worry overtake you in this life. Seek the Lord and find rest and comfort in Him! When the enemy attempts to strike, fight back with the truth found in God's Word and don't let Satan keep you down! When you fall, don't beat yourself up but dust yourself off and grab The Father's hand and He will walk you through life's battles. It really is possible to win the worry battle!

    I am no stranger to worry, so when I saw Winning the Worry Battle by Barb Roose on Net Galley to review, I jumped at the opportunity. This book offered advice about being successful in the struggle against worry, and it compared the struggles that we faced to what Joshua faced in the Bible. I enjoyed how the author incorporated the story of Joshua as an example of how to conquer worry today.

    Some parts of the book that stuck out for me were:

    -the different types of worriers: silent sufferers, busy body, mother hens, control freaks)

    -When in the midst of a worry battle, repeat I don't have to worry, God will help me.

    -The Starter Train Set (5 short Bible verses that we can read each morning and evening to replace some of the worry in our minds)

    -Three fighting friends: peace, courage, and strength

    -One worry = one prayer

    -Stop saying that God can't give you more than you can handle. God allows us to have more than we can handle alone so that we can turns towards God, because He can.

    -Forgetting what God has done for us leads us to fear.

    - The comparison between God taking down the walls of Jericho and the worry walls in our own lives

    -Being a warrior vs. a worrier

    -Background issues in our lives drain our batteries, just like apps in the background draining the batteries on our cell phone.

    -Cue and rewards are essential to fighting a long term worry battle.

    - Carefrontations instead of confrontations

    Some of the points made weren't as applicable in my life (i.e. fasting), but overall I enjoyed reading the book and gained some helpful pointers about dealing with chronic worry. I would give this book 4 stars.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Abingdon Press, through Net Galley. All opinions are my own.
