Give Up Worry for Lent (Morning Air)

If you struggle a lot with worry and anxiety, have you considered giving it up for Lent?

In a heartfelt conversation with John Morales on Morning Air, Gary Zimak opens up about how to do this.

He’s got a book that he’d love for you to check out. It’s called “Give Up, Worry, For Lent: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ.” 

He starts off by getting real about his own struggles with anxiety, and he breaks down the difference between worry and anxiety in a way that just clicks. Gary talks about how faith helped him through tough times and that trusting in God turned his worries into blessings.

We’re not given the option about whether or not we should give into anxiety. Jesus tells us not to worry!

Gary shares that we need to come to a complete surrender that all things will work out with God as our anchor. No matter what tough situation you may find yourself in, Jesus has allowed you to be there for a reason. He will take care of you and will never abandon you.

Embrace hope and consider giving up worry as a Lenten practice!
