I am excited to share the news that my latest book is finished and available on Amazon. This has been a project that has been in my heart for several years and it is finally a reality. Since my first sermon on this topic in 1996, this treatise has burned in my spirit. For those who struggle with worry, fear, and anxiety, this book is for you.
Throughout my adult life, I have had to use these principles over and over to overcome my propensity to anxiety. These are time tested principles from the Word of God. One's that I have to remind myself often to apply to my life. Anxiety is a real struggle in our world and will get the best of us, unless we learn to manage it. Thankfully, God's Word gives us the prescription.
In the chapters of Worry Less. WORRY FREE., you will find common remedies and also some unconventional ones that we don't often think about. If you deal with worry and anxiety, I believe this book will be a blessing to you.
If you happen to read it, I would appreciate an honest assessment of it, and feel free to leave a review on Amazon.

Every once in a while, I look back at old sermons from my Grandpa’s Bible. Though he only pastored a short time, he preached many convicting sermons. It amazes me that the cry of the pastor’s heart was the same in the 1950’s as it is today. Or at least it should be. Revive Us O God!
The sermon reads, “Our Lord has been glorified and the great gift to the church is the Holy Ghost and the one answer to your problems and needs and my needs and that of the whole family of God throughout the whole world is the Holy Ghost.
Oh Breath of Life come sweeping through us,
Revive thy church with life and power.
O Breath of life, come, cleanse and renew us,
Equip Thy Church to meet this hour.”
Shouldn’t this be our prayer today? The remedy for the world is still the same. It hasn’t changed in these last fifty years, nor has it changed since the time of the Early Christians. What this world needs is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. What the church needs is a revival that will change us and empower us to impact the world around us.
Our prayer should be, “O Breath of Life, move on us and revive us. Make us alive once again!” Let us call on God and give Him no rest until a mighty revival sweeps through our communities and our nation. Our nation needs a Great Awakening!
Next week my new book Worry Less. WORRY FREE. releases on Amazon. I will post more about it on Tuesday, November 17.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always,
17 pray continually,
18 give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus .
On this most crucial day,
When many Americans have their say.
We look to You above,
To You, the God of love.
Who sees all and knows all,
Even the nations that rise and fall.
Certainly, we live in tumultuous times,
Many hearts are heavy including mine.
The angst of a nation is at an all-time high,
Oh God, we ask that You hear our cries.
Here, we are being torn at the seams,
Now a nightmare to our American Dreams.
Our hearts are burdened for the Land of the Free,
Help us, oh God, through Your eyes to see.
The angst of a nation has clouded our sight,
We have forgotten all that is truly right.
We are pulled in every direction,
What will solve it? An election?
Ours is a problem of the heart,
This is why we are torn apart.
The angst of a nation has brought us to a breaking,
Our only hope is another Great Awakening.
It is in these times that we are drawn to our knees,
It is for our great nation that we intercede.
You are awakening your church to call on You,
But after today our intercession cannot be through.
Oh God, help us return to one nation under God,
A land that is indivisible, on others we do not trod.
Let us be a land that is united once again,
Let the angst of this nation finally end.
You are our hope, not an R or a D,
You are our King, You have set us free.
Reveal yourself in these anxious days,
Oh God, help us always to follow Your ways.
The angst of a nation, does drive us apart,
But let Your love, be the place we start.
Heal our land, as we turn from our evil ways,
We humbly bow before You, come and save the day.
