In the sermon today, I'm going to mention a resource for praying about your anxieties: it's a collection of many of the most relevant psalms (prayers) in the Bible about fear and anxiety.
If you are a person who finds workbooks helpful, Ed Welch has written a good one: When I Am Afraid: A Step-by-Step Guide Away from Fear and Anxiety. It's a shorter, more interactive companion to his longer book, Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest. And if you are interested in exploring the relationship between neuropsychology and theology, his book Blame it on the Brain? is great place to start.
Also: the inimitable Kim Sutter taught a four-part class on dealing with anxiety at FCF earlier this year. You can listen to the audio recordings and read the notes on her website:
Anxiety is a huge topic, and this is just the tip of the iceberg... but I hope you find some of this to be helpful. Quality resources are fine and good, but there's no substitute for talking about it, with God and people you trust.
Yours in Christ,
