When I was pregnant last year, I had a fear running wild in my mind. Being 36, I was told the baby could have Down Syndrome due to my age. I also feared that I may have hurt the baby when I took some prescription medication known to be harmful during pregnancy before I knew I was pregnant. Although I would keep my baby no matter what, I was afraid of the unknown.
I spend a lot of time worrying, even before this pregnancy. I know I’m supposed to trust God, not worry, but I still do it.
Studying the Bible using Breaking Free From Fear has helped me think on God’s Word and less on my problems. Learning about fear and the opposite – trusting in God, as well as learning and storing the Scripture in my heart and mind, has really helped me counteract the worries that I face every day.
The Bible study contains Scripture within its text, mostly NASB. Grab your Bible if you’re a KJV reader, like me. The study is divided into six weekly studies, but you can work at your own pace. Being a working mother, sometimes I have to go at a slower pace, since time is an issue. Each lesson invites you to Observe, read Scripture, and ponder as you answer the Questions provided. There’s even room to write in the book, if you choose to.
You can study the book alone or as a group study. This is a great study resource. I previously studied another 40-Minute Bible Study by Kay Arthur titled Fatal Distractions: Conquering Destructive Temptations. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
