Worry can be crippling for some, but it’s an aggravation for all. It saps our sleep, drains our joy, and exhausts our energy. Is there any way to overcome such a common problem, or is it an inescapable part of the human condition? The good news is that there is hope for even a chronic worrier. Biblical counselor Robert Jones takes us to the heart of our worry, helping us to approach it in the right way—understanding the cause before we look for solutions. When we give ourselves to a person, goal, ideal, or object rather than Jesus, our trust shifts to a shaky foundation. No wonder we’re anxious! Jones points us to the resources we have in God’s Word and Spirit to overcome worry and live for Christ.
