Anxiety Series: Fear, Worry, Anxiety, and Faith

Anxiety wastes away our productivity.  Perhaps this is why Jesus reminded us not be anxious about tomorrow.  It easier said than done!  The powerful thing about anxiety is that it reveals to us a vivid picture of what we love, protect, and value.  This is why Jesus wanted us to evaluate our fear, worry and anxiety so that He could demonstrate His power to meet our deepest needs.

The articles in this series are extremely practical because everyone struggles with some level of anxiety. We have chosen to cover this topic from many different angles, because each person's experience with anxiety is very different.  Over the years, BCC has spent a great deal of time working through these issues, and we pray that the articles below will be a blessing to you.  We also want to remind you that our counselors are ready to work with you, either in our Chicago area offices or via online video counseling anywhere in the world.
