The title says it all!!! Joyce does a wonderful job giving the reader scriptures and guiding principles to arm themselves against fear, worry and doubt. Joyce shares her own personal roadmap and experiences that helped her overcome these obstacles and enabled her to cast all of her cares! This is a book that I reference often, timeless!

This book was recommended to me by a dear friend right when I needed it most. I never thought of myself an anxious person, but I was (like most people) susceptible to moments of extreme worry and stress. It wasn't until I experienced an anxiety attack during a moment that I needed to be calm the most that I reconsidered how I looked at myself. I looked into some meditational exercises as well as thought about seeing a counselor to talk about my anxiety, but nothing seemed to speak to me like Joy ...more

"Because the devil knows we are making progress toward our goal, he will try to distract us. He will continually tempt us to "take the road of worry" so he can lead us off into destruction." ~ Joyce Meyer, "Be Anxious for Nothing", page 118-119.

One of my goals is to overcome anxiety, stress and worry. I think this kind of spirit is very prevalent in the world we are currently living in. Every time you hear the news, worry is broadcast on it. Therefore, we require strategies, skills and technique

This book totally changed my life when I read it, back in 2008. I went from being a champion "worry wart" and someone who stressed over many things, to being a peaceful woman who has learned to totally trust in God, lay her troubles in His lap, and leave them there. This is a MUST read for every single Christian who struggles with worry and stressing over issues.

This book blessed me in a time when I was unsure about many things in life. I wanted to prosper but I wanted it now not later. This book help me to see that God has an appointed time for everything and that we can go to God with our cares and let Him handle everything.
This book has helped me so much! I am a huge fan of JM's practical advice and wisdom.

Thus far this book has moved me to think about my daily walk with God. It is powerful! I highly recommend this book to everyone who has ever felt anxious, constantly moving and doing, trying to make things work when the first thing we need to do is give ourselves to God! Finding peace and rest in Him. Great book!

Joyce Meyer not only gives great sermons, but also great books!
Her "here it is" approach is a breath of fresh air to me. I love how she approaches even the most hardest of topics, and naturally I find myself re-reading her books often.

Good book.
I'm took my time reading this book - lots of processing needed. Very good - lots of "lightbulb moments." I recommend this to everyone!
This is a great book for those who need advise on handling anxiety and worry.

Another Joyce Meyer book filled biblical scriptures and her insightful personal antidotes.
usual stuff and fluff. Not a fan of Joyce.

Awesome book that I plan to go back and re-read at some point, perhaps this time taking notes. Each passion I would read came at just the right time.

Really opened up my awareness to areas I need to be patient with. Reminds me that God is in control.
