  • Anxious for Nothing

Anxiety is at an all time high, but there's a prescription for dealing with it. Max Lucado invites listeners into a study of Philippians 4:6-7, where the Apostle Paul admonishes the followers of Christ, "Do not be anxious about anything...." Philippians 4:6 encourages the believer to "be anxious for nothing". As Lucado states, the Apostle Paul seems to leave little leeway here. "Be anxious of nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero."

At one time, Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that she had a story to tell. For the first 50 years of her life, nothing out of the ordinary ever happened to her. She was a spinster watchmaker living contentedly with her sister and their elderly father in the tiny house over their shop in Haarlem. Their uneventful days, as regulated as their own watches, revolved around their abiding love for one another. But with the Nazi invasion and occupation of Holland, everything changed....

This book should truly be required reading for every living, breathing human on the planet. It is important for us to remember the past and to face the realities of them so that we can be more intentional in avoiding them in the future. The Ten Boom story gives great perspective with an optimism and hopefulness that we could only hope to immolate in similar circumstances. The story is so horrific and yet so beautiful. Evidence that God can, and does, use all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose.

It's likely you have a threatening giant in your life...an adversary or stronghold that's diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, we lose sight of the promise God has for our lives. Demoralized and defeated, we settle for far less than his best. God has a better plan for you, a plan for you to live in victory. That's why he has silenced your giant once and for all.

We were created by an infinitely creative God to reflect his love and character to the world. One way we do that is by continuing his creative work. In this energizing book, serial entrepreneur and best-selling author Jordan Raynor helps artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and other creatives re-imagine our work as service to God and others, addressing such penetrating questions as: Is my work as a creative really as God-honoring as that of a pastor or missionary? Will what I make today matter in eternity?

God is the ultimate creator and since we are made in His image we too have endless capacity for creativity. It comes in all shapes and forms, but is valuable in every iteration. This book is good for someone needing to reconnect with what it means to create and why they should be willing to pursue what they were called to create.

I listened to Love Does and Everybody Always in reverse order, but was totally enamored with the story telling, the person and the inspiration. If only we could each learn to apply these concepts to our lives more willingly. We'd be more vulnerable, but we'd be more fulfilled.

After her release from a concentration camp, Corrie ten Boom set out to become what she called a “tramp for the Lord,” traveling around the world at the direction of God and proclaiming his message everywhere. Throughout her life-long experiences, she learned a few lessons in God’s great classroom, which she here shares with listeners. Corrie introduces us to her former prison guard, who asks her for forgiveness; a war-crippled lawyer with a soul as twisted and deformed as his limbs; and more.
