Finding peace in a world of anxiety
Do you sometimes feel the stress and anxiety of life is overwhelming? Do you find yourself tired and worn down, struggling to continue with the day-to-day battles? I want you to know that you are not alone in that —I have struggled with this too. And apparently so does most of the country we live in.
According to the book Be Anxious For Nothing by Max Lucado, fifty million Americans will feel the effects of a panic attack or anxiety disorder in any given year. Anxiety disorders in the US are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol among men. Stress-related ailments cost the nation $ 300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity.
Why are we so stressed? There are a few different factors. Some reasons might be broken family units, divorce, lack of immediate family in an area, lack of stable relationships, issues with the kinds of food we eat, or the media culture.

Peace is a person, and that person is Jesus.
