    I suffer from anxiety... ughhh it's awful. I'm always looking for advice and a fix for it. I've read a lot of books on it but this was the first book I've read that was about God and anxiety. Trust me.. I pray about it, but this book gives some specific scriptures to read and an entire...

    When you find the right book at exactly the right time. I so needed this today! So inspiring. I could and should listen to it every day. I feel like the author wrote it just for me. I worry about most of the things he mentioned. Very helpful and highly recommended for anyone who worrie...

    Max Lucado is my favorite Christian author. His message is always hopeful, written in a way that resonates with me. This was exactly what I needed to read as I begin a new year determined to turn over to God my worries that I can?t fix ...

    When I see the name MAX LUCADO my interest is captured. When I ran across ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING: FINDING CALM IN A CHAOTIC WORLD, I ordered it immediately. I have run across many in my life that struggle with anxiety. I think if we were honest, most of us do in one form or another, at di...

    Is there a zero star option? I was unfamiliar with this author and picked up the book as a person of faith who found the title appealing. Let me sum up and save you the trouble: Lucado uses the Bible to shame and man-splain to you why your clinical anxiety disorder is invalid. Aban...

    FANTASTIC! I really needed this right now - my friend, who suggested it to me must have known that! The exact words I needed for the moment. Lucado is a master of taking the ordinary and making it Heavenly - challenging us to look upward and see the One who has it all under control. ...

    ?We rest in him, find our nourishment in him. His roof of grace protects us from storms of guilt. His walls of providence secure us from destructive winds. His fireplace warms us during the lonely winters of life. We linger in the abode of Christ and never leave.? This is classi...

    This book has a message worth hearing whether you are stressed out and need to calm down or as a reminder to remain living a calm life. Max Lucado keeps a sense of humor alongside the wisdom, I love his anecdotes which make the truths easier to remember and the overall tone is one o...

    There were so many inspirational and biblical points from this book, that I just want to post pages of the book around the house. I have been dealing with anxiety for several years and am slowly making progress with it and this book was just what I needed to keep me moving in the right...

    Anxiety is defined as worry, nervousness or unease about an impending event or uncertain outcome. If anxiety is left unchecked, it can lead to disease. Max Lucado shares stories and wisdom based out of Philippians 4:6-7. We don?t have to worry and feel defeated about the uncertaintie...

    What a wonderful book for my life right now! When faced with so many things to stress about it can be so difficult to just stop and ask God for wisdom and help. This book gave so many real world tips and advice backed up with biblical truth. ...

    This book is wonderful. The title "Anxious For Nothing" isn't a gentle scold on being anxious for no reason. The book acknowledges that there are many things in life that cause us anxiety. Rather, the book is about trusting God in such a way that gives Him control over our anxieties...

    I grabbed Anxious for Nothing on a whim when I saw the lovely cover at my library. I expected a moving self-help book to help with my anxiety, instead I got a repetitious, mediocre story. Lucado repeated the same scripture while making the same point throughout the book. As I began ...

    I flew through this one quickly during a lunch break before we recorded a podcast where one of our team members interviewed Lucado about anxiety -- it's a good read, a quick read, and nothing mind-blowing. There were some helpful, meaningful nuggets here, but it felt more like a "Hey, ...

    I read a lot of Lucado as a teenager and liked his books but I felt I grew out of them. I came back because I wanted to see how he could help with anxiety. This book was so good, possibly because I read it at precisely the right time. If you are a Christian and ever struggle with anxie...

    There are so many things in life that we are anxious for! Our children, work, finances and all the what ifs that are floating in our minds on a daily basis. BUT if our focus is on God, all those anxieties become weakened as we draw closer to Him! We aren?t promised a life without pai...

    I think it's time I admit that I'm not going to finish this. I'm not finding it meaningful or interesting, and I'm tired of it sitting on my nightstand and judging me for not reading it. ...

    I?ve read a number of Lucado?s books, and I?ve yet to be disappointed. This book was a bit shorter than I expected (and I would?ve loved it to have been longer!), but there is so much information to be gained in it that I took my time reading it. The overall message of this ...

    This was a fast lovely book. My only concern is that sometimes it?s not a faith thing, it?s a medical thing. Certainly this book will help many, but there still is place for a good therapist and medication when needed. ...

    Great Find! An excellent reflection on Philippians 4! This study goes into more depth than other works by Max Lucado. The questions and meditations in the back of the book are quite helpful. ...

    It was really nice of Max Lucado to write this book especially for me. I wore out a yellow highlighter reading this book, only to realize it doesn't do any good to highlight all the text in a book! This is a book I may read annually because the words really spoke to my heart and I thin...

    I chose this book because I was looking to try something different for devotion time with my children. My two oldest children (ages 12 and 10) often struggle with worry, and my hope was this book would be helpful for them. The way I approached sharing it with them was to personally rea...

    Be Anxious for Nothing Philippians 4:6 Max Lucado is one of my favorite authors and Pastor's. When I see any book by Max Lucado I must pick it up and read it. Anxiety is one of fastest growing disorders everyone at some point in their life has or have suffered from Anxiety. So...

    I remember when I was first diagnosed with an anxiety disorder (which also was not long ago) I was angry with God. I knew people suffered from it but, I automatically due to the severity of it blamed God and thought ?what did I do to deserve this!? Now looking back, that was a norm...

    I loved the book. Sometimes Christians can be very hard on Christians that struggle with anxiety. Saying things such as, just pray more, or trust God more. This book is written from a perspective of understanding of those who struggle and key ways to overcome them by changing your thou...
