I have to confess I didn't like reading that fear and worry are sin at first, but I continued to read and by the end of the book I could see that they really are because both reflect a lack of trust in God. However, neither the author nor scriptures condemn a person for falling into the worry trap that leads to fear and anxiety. Instead, Fitzpatrick respectfully and compassionately uses her counseling experience and biblical truth to help the reader discover ways to overcome the cycle and replace fear with God's power.
The book helps the reader identify their real sources of fears and worries which I found helpful. I'm often skeptical when counselors want to blame everything on childhood and while that sometimes is a root of adult issues, Fitzpatrick touches on that possibility but doesn't dwell on as the only cause. For myself, working through some of the exercises helped me see how some of what I learned and experienced growing up has contributed to my inclination to worry today.
What I took away from this book is that most of what we worry about and fear the most almost always never happens. I was reminded that I can't be anxious, fearful and full of worry at the same time I'm trusting God to protect, provide, and care for me. They simply can't co-exist.
This is a book I will read again.
