In an encouraging and uplifting message, Rev. Ruth Blum uses many scripture references to point out ways to overcome anxiety. The World Health Organization states that right now in the year 2023 3.6% (approximately 264 million) of the world population suffer from some sort of anxiety disorder.
In 1 Peter 5:6-11 we find a message God gave Peter to share with people who were experiencing persecution for their faith or because they would not conform to the “norms” of their society. He reminded people that they/we will have trouble but we are to “cast our anxiety on Jesus.”
