“I was born into a long line of worriers.”  — Angela Thomas

How many of you can identify with that? You, too?

I can make you a laundry list of things I’m worried about right now:

  • Launching our new LifeWay Women e-newsletter in a couple of weeks
  • My tomatoes in my garden are rotting on the vine before they’re even ripe
  • Why that guy I’m dating hasn’t called me to ask me out for this weekend
  • A family member is dealing with some health complications
  • I’m behind in my Bible study homework

And the list goes on.

Angela challenges us to let our belief in God make us strong against worry. Check out this clip from Stronger:

To combat the worry, we’re giving away a FREE small group starter kit of Stronger. That includes a leader kit with DVDs and five member books. Enter the giveaway below.

    I would love to lead a study and encourage other women in my community.

  139. “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction that is but for a moment is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. While we do not look at the things that are seen but the things that are not seen for the things which are seen are temporary and the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2nd Cor. 4:16-18 (I memorized this after losing my 12 year old son to brain cancer.)

    They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jer. 17:8

    This verse always brings me comfort! I grew up facing adversity but more importantly I grew up with a single mother who always made sure I did my Sunday School lesson and took me to church every Sunday! When I get overly anxious, I think about the roots that my mother, grandmother, and extended family planted within me and all is calm. It reminds me of my faith when I mess up in thinking I can do things myself.

  151. I’d love to have this! Phil 4:13 always makes me ‘stronger’

  152. Mt 6:25-34 – great passage to put things into perspective

    My verse is Psalm 57:1-2 — AMP> Be merciful and gracious to me, O God, be merciful and gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your winds will I take refuge and be confident until calamities and destructive storms are passed.. I will cry to God Most High, Who performs on my behalf and rewards me (Who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them)!

  198. Sherry L. says:

    I saw Angela in Tulsa last year and totally fell in love with her. I related to her then and even more now. Her story of taking care of her mother as she passed is very near and dear to my heart, as I helped to take care of my dad as he passed on May 29th of this year. I also related to her and her kids sports stories. I felt as if I had known her my whole life and that we were the best of friends. I would love to get this Bible she has written. Thank you.

  251. Psalm 131 quiets my heart and puts my focus on the Lord who is in complete control.

    Rhoda Coleman
    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
    This study would help me so much.

  262. Because it’s my arrogant instinct to try to figure it all out by myself instead of “bothering” God with the details, my go-to verse is “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. In all your ways, acknowlege Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (emphasis mine). My amazing study group will be finishing up our current study in about three more weeks and haven’t picked our next one yet so this would come in very handy. We have not experienced an Angela Thomas study yet.

  263. Peggy Foreman says:

    There are MANY verses that come to mind. However, John 3:16 is the basis for all the promises HE has made and KEEPS to everyone that is a child of HIS……For God so Loved the World that HE gave HIS only begotten SON that WHOSOEVER believeth in HIM should not perish but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE! To know HIM is to know HE is our provider, our protector, our provision, our peace,….Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heats be troubled and do not be afraid…John 14:27.

  264. Katrina Mintz says:

    The Lord’s words to Job inspire me when I need to know that God is always in control….even in the storms!
    Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:
    2“Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?
    3Brace yourself like a man;
    I will question you, and you shall answer me. 4“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
    Tell me, if you understand.
    5Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
    6On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—
    7while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

  265. I discovered this bible study a week or so ago and was already planning to try to purchase. Thanks for the giveaway.
    my verse is actually a chapter: Psalm 91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (Psalms 91:1-16 KJV)

  266. Linda Peel says:

    The Lord will fight for you. You only need to be still.

  267. I think this would be beneficial for personal & spiritual growth!

  268. Would love to host this at my church, sounds great

  269. Isaiah 26:3
    “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in You.”
    My life verse…………and one I repeat to myself often :)

  270. Matt 6:25-27 NIV
    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

    Would love to win this!!!

  271. This would be great for our small group.

    “But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

  272. Psalm 121
    King James Version (KJV)
    121″ I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
    2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”
    If He made Heaven and earth, He surely has control of the things happening in my life!

  273. I was trying to leave a post and it apparently posted before I finished so I will try again :)

  276. Our church is in the process of growing pains, Praise God! However we worry, about all sorts of things. Individual personal worries, church worries, community worries, state, national, world… it goes on and on. I think since we are revamping our Women’s ministry and expanding our outreach this would be a perfect lead in for a fall study. Keep the studies coming, we love them!

  277. Philippians 1:6
    Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

  278. John14:1-2 – knowing who God is, what he has done through the gospel and his unfailing love helps strip the worry away. I try to remind myself everyday of the gospel.

  279. Sue Harrison says:

    Jeremiah 29:11…even when things seem to be falling apart I can be confident He had a plan and purpose for my life :)

  280. … I would give almost anything not to worry. To be honest I dont even know when I worry anymore because I literally feel like its part of me – like its engrained into my DNA. It feels like breathing – I just see the after effects, I suffer from an obsessive compulsive disorder now that shows me the truth about my worrying now but how do you stop something that feels like its taken over..

  281. When I begin “worrying” I turn to Psalm 23:!….The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. It is a balm to my soul…..my prayer is always, “Transform me, Lord, from a worrier to a warrior.”

  282. Psalm 46:10
    He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” I always reminds me that He is on the throne regardless of what’s going on.

  283. I love Phil. 4:13. “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” This sounds like a great study. Would love to have it and share it with the ladies in my small group.

  284. I can’t remember the “address” right now . . . but remembering that I am God’s treasured possession . . . who could worry after that?

  285. Love bible studies! Would really enjoy winning.

  286. Lauren DeBusk-Lane says:

    Philippians 4:6-9: not only are we called to talk with God, but we’re told to act upon what He has informed us to do- and most importantly to trust Him fully.

  287. Michelle Wright says:

    I am so guilty of worrying. I am always praying Lord I believe. Help thou my unbelief. If I believe I won’t worry because I know He is faithful do to what He has promised to do.

  288. This may just be the Bible study for me.

  289. Denise C. says:

    Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all he has done.
    ~Philippians 4:6

  293. I am always blessed by Angela’s studies. I look forward to doing this one and would love to win a copy to share with others.

  294. Jennifer Jones says:

    For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Jeremiah 29:11

  295. Shani Pearce says:

    Jeremiah 29:11…. God’s gives us a future and a hope, even when we feel hopeless.

  296. Awsome! Sounds like just the study for me!

  297. Pat n FL says:

    I have two verses one is my life verse: Romans 8:28 “For we know that al things work to the good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purpose” and Philippians 4:13 ” I can do ALL things through Christ which strengthen me” I look forward to doing Angela’s Bible study with some of my lady friends as we grow stronger in God’s grace and love.

  298. “Be still and know that I am God”

  299. Kathy Fraley says:

    Jeremiah 29:11 I would love to win the study for my group! Thank you!

  300. PS 18:19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me

  301. Sylvia Vann says:

    This would be great to have! Just what I need right now!

  304. Jolinda Drake says:

    Would love to win!! We have never done one of her studies!! My Mother, daughters, Granddaughter and I absolutely love to gather on Tuesday evenings and study God word! This would be a blast!

    Psalm 121:1-2 has been my favorite verse for many years….and my go-to verse!

  306. Proverbs 3:5-6 is my go to verse! We must trust in The Lord with all our hearts!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

  307. Becky Miller says:

    Being a cancer survivor has made me stronger — but only because I could lean on God. Otherwise, I could not have done it, and in fact am still trying to survive it.

  308. Cyndi Salmon says:

    When I start to worry, I think about the life of Nehemiah. Whatever trials he faced the first thing he did was pray to God. Every time! My verse for worry is Phil. 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”. I try to be obedient to this verse, and like Nehemiah, pray first rather than later.

  309. Jeremiah 29:11

  310. Matt. 6:25-34 Going through a season of worry. Would love to have this study.

  311. Adrianne Huls says:

    I am part of a unique group of women who have to be strong everyday. Being a military spouse has made me realize the amazing commitment that I have made to rely on an Almighty Saviour who calms my heart in fear of what my husband does daily.

I want everyone to know and tap into the fullest of life in Christ and not miss a moment even when we walk blond in our journey because God is always always with us.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.“ (Matthew 11:28-30); Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

  356. Psalm 27:1-2 always helps. Would love the study.

  357. Rachel DiAntonio says:

    This study looks great! I would love to do it with my women’s small group!

Whenever I need to have a need for a help to strengthen me or give others encouragement in life I first tell them to pull out their bible and turn to Isaiah 40:31 and believe that we are lifted on wings like eagles. Also to pray to our heavenly father and believe he will strengthen us. This sounds like the perfect study for my small group. Thanks for the chance. Bless you all

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. I have this on my keychain to help remind me not to worry!

  367. I have many favorites but when I need strength I love to read Isaiah 40:31. I first read it when my Dad died and someone had given me a key ring with part of the verse written on it. I read it over and over again as I learned that it held a place in my thoughts as I needed strength and faith.

  368. Andrea White says:

  389. Katrina Baker says:

    My favorite scripture on worry is Matthew 6:25-34. He is in control of all things!

  390. Oh my…how I would love to win this! Not to worry ( :) ) if I don’t thought, I’ll be among the first here in Canada lining up at our local Lifeway supplier down the road….

    My verse (actually there are so many — here is only one of them)

    Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;
    Read Isaiah 59 ESV

  391. Joanne Jobin says:

    Love how this one tells you like it is…..
    Matthew 6:34

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He shall direct[a] your paths.

    This looks like a very good study to share with my Sunday school ladies.
    Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

  393. Banita Cooper says:

    This sounds like just what I need. I go to 1st Thess. 5:16-18 My fatherinlaw who had cancer (a fragile place for sure) 2 years ago demonstrated this in his life and especially in his last days that I draw much strength from God promise in it.

  394. Dawn Heath Widener says:

    My current verse ( because I change my mind often) is:
    Romans 5:2b-5
    And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces……. Through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

    These verses help me to remember that painful as suffering is, it is proof that I am still alive and being molded by the Holy Spirit. If I am still being molded, then that is proof that God still has plans to use me for his glory. If God has not given up on me, then I still have hope.

  395. Teri Beamer says:

    My verse? Jeremiah 29:11!

  396. Joey Lynn says:

    Thank you for this opportunity to win. This is very exciting.

  397. I wonder if we worry so much because we get caught up in the fear that we are alone; that there is no one who can really help us. That’s why I quote to myself what Jesus promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Then I take a deep breath and face life as it envelops me.

    • Esther Evans says:

      Hi, Vicki, I was just checking all the posts for this enter to win Strong study. and I read your post.. wow, girlfriend you hit the nail totally on the head. Fear is the biggest thing that we have in our hearts and minds sometimes that totally effects how or why we worry.. Fear is still one of my things, but I’m praying to God for healing in this to take away my fears, and I’m doing better than I was a while ago.. God is so Awesome and He does answer our prayers.. love that verse also.. Fear not for I Am with you.. thank you for reminding me of that my friend… prayers to you…Esther

  398. andrean t. says:

    Oh Yes. Stronger is what I long to be.
    There are a few around me that I feel are hearing this call…
    some out of a wrong choice,
    others out of loneliness,
    yet still others need to get out from under oppression
    2 Cor 12:9
    But He said to me, “My powerful grace is all you will ever need, girlie. When you are weakest in all of your worry I WILL BE STRONG.” I will see my weakness as the chance to platform my All-Powerful LORD GOD.
    (my paraphrase of needing Him to keep me stronger during waves of oppression right now)

    Nee… needing…. stre…strength. (-_-)

    I belong to 2 small groups that would love this Bible study. Thank you for offering it and a chance to win it!

  413. When I worry it’s because I feel powerless over a situation/circumstance. I have to remind myself that God is working on my behalf and that He holds me in His righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10,13 Don’t be afraid for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. For I hold you by your right hand. I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid, I am here to help you

  414. Psalm 91:1-2 He who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” vs 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

  415. Psalm 143. Mostly. But there are a ton that pop into my brain when I am really desperate with worry! This would be an awesome bible study for our group. We often agree that worry is our biggest issue as moms, wives, etc.

  416. Rachel Hall says:

    Luke 12 : 22 Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. 23 Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? 25 And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature.
