¬†A Worrier’s Guide to the Bible: 50 Verses to Ease Anxieties¬†written by Gary Zimak is a book for all of us since despite what Scripture teaches, many of us still fall into worry over past events, the present and most especially the future.

When I requested this title, I expected to receive little more than a folded pamphlet but Zimak was able to take the topic of worry and find so much in scriptures to produce a book of over one hundred pages to guide us toward peace in our lives. There are eight chapters: Confusion, Despair, Doubt, Fear, Persecution, Sickness, Trials & Tribulation and The Secret Weapon. Each chapter begins with an introduction followed by multiple Scripture verses, explanations (in many ways a devotional) and finally a prayer. The reader can go from page one until the end or jump around to a specific topic that speaks to one’s heart. There is something in this book for everyone.

Although I have yet to read all the entries, I have found nuggets of wisdom in each entry I have read. I was reminded that ‘the most important lesson for us is that we should always turn to the Lord in times of confusion” and that “if something is in accordance with God’s will, you’ll often experience a feeling of peace and contentment”.

This book is one that would be perfect to leave in a doctor’s office, a hospital waiting room, or even just on a park bench. Worry is such a constant presence in our lives and we all need the reminder that we are to turn to Him at all times in all situations.
