Winning over Worry
The need to help people cope with the problem of worry cries out for a spiritual solution! Uncontrolled worry corrodes the joy of living and brings about deterioration of mind and body. The world tries to solve these problems with temporary, partial quick-fixes (often resorting to medication that may even lead to substance abuse). Any non-biblical approach will ultimately just give the worrier more to worry about. People are desperate for a total solution, and that can only be found through God’s peace principles as revealed in His Word. This course uses a classic bestseller by John E. Haggai and a small booklet by Charles Weigle to equip the counselor to point others to worry-free living.
