Four Ways to Calm Anxiety

October 20, 2017

Hey, y’all! I’m Melissa Taylor, director of Online Bible Studies and, more importantly, your friend and study partner!

Have you ever been called a Nervous Nelly or Worry Wart? I’m sure I’ve been classified as both.

It’s easy to let life get the best of you. It’s easy to let your mind go to the worst case scenario and feel like there’s no way things can get better. But, there’s hope. And we’re going to find it through our next study, Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado, beginning November 6.

For those of you wondering what this study is all about, wonder no more! Because I’m going to give you a sneak peek of the book and study right now!

Max gives us a very relevant acronym to work through in the book — the acronym C.A.L.M. Let’s take a glance at how this acronym plays out in each section of the Anxious for Nothing book ...

Section 1: Celebrate God’s Goodness
In this section, we’re going to learn to calm our anxiety by rejoicing in what God is doing through His power and goodness.

Section 2: Ask God for Help
If you’re anything like me, asking for help can be hard. I don’t want to put my problems on anyone. But Max will teach us in Section 2 how this can calm our anxiety, too, and how letting our requests be known to God is biblical and God wants to help us. No matter the situation. Just reading that takes a weight off my shoulders.

Section 3: Leave Your Concerns With Him
We’re learning about the power of gratitude in Section 3! It’s hard to be thankful when we have a lot going on around us. Because #LifeHappens. But, we will learn how we can be thankful through our trials and circumstances to help us calmour anxiety.

Section 4: Meditate on the Good Things
When life gets hard, that’s all I focus on … the bad stuff. I have to constantly readjust what I’m thinking about. But through this section, we’ll learn how to cling to Christ and think in a whole new way to help us calm our anxiety.

So, there you have it — four ways we’re going to learn to calm all our anxiety in our lives. Who’s ready?!

Let’s Chat:

After reading the acronym C.A.L.M, and reading about the four sections in Anxious for Nothing, which one do you struggle with the most and/or are most excited to study?
I’m most excited about “Learning how to leave my concerns with God”! As a mom, it’s easy to feel the weight of my own problems and the problems of my kids. It’s tough to hand it all over to God. But I know, through this study, there’s peace to be found and transformation will happen.
