From the Back Cover
The Bible calls us to "fear not" on many occasions. But just how do we accomplish that when every news item seems designed to get us wringing our hands? Using her own story as a catalyst, Maria Furlough discusses how to overcome fear for good. With practicality and passion, she shows us the steps we can take to bring those fears to God rather than act on them and to trust God with the future.
When we give God full control over our lives, choosing his sovereignty over our own ability, we can break the cycle of fear, grow through suffering, and trust God to fulfill his promises of protection and peace. If you are filled with anxiety about your personal circumstances, the state of the world today, or even your fear-clogged social media feeds, you'll welcome this hands-on journey from fear to freedom.
"Welcome wisdom--earned in the trenches--that will help you break the fear cycle and find the peace your heart longs for."--Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol
"When fear rises up, our first instinct may be to either completely avoid it or fall victim to worst-case scenarios. Maria Furlough offers an alternative, issuing the invitation to break the fear cycle altogether in this gentle and deeply personal book."--Emily P. Freeman, author of Simply Tuesday
"Fear finds its paralyzing power in its ability to mentally transport us into imaginary places of pain where the reality of God's presence, power, and provision never show up. Maria Furlough has written a helpful book filled with practical and real-life wisdom for breaking the cycle of fear and faithfully overcoming the harsher realities of life in a painful and broken world."--Larry Osborne, pastor, North Coast Church, and author
