How to Overcome Worry by Winfred Dr. Neely


Rating: 3/5

Synopsis:  Do you struggle with worry or anxious thoughts on a regular basis? Does your mind get fixated on the same concern over and over? Do you know you should stop worrying but repeatedly fail to do so?

How to Overcome Worry presents a biblical and practical strategy for this exact problem. Dr. Winfred Neely, who has experienced his fair share of anxiety-inducing circumstances, walks you through Philippians 4:6–7 to help you:

Understand the difference between concern and worry
Use prayer as a means of grace to overcome worry
Cultivate gratitude and thanksgiving as an antidote to worry
Navigate changing seasons and circumstances without falling into worry
Employ practical strategies for experiencing the peace of God
Worry is one of the top issues in our world today, even among Christians, and this concise and biblical approach will offer real solutions. In His Word, God tells us to stop worrying, pray about everything, and expect His peace. This is a true promise of Scripture, and this book will help you to lay hold of it.


“Anxiety can reside in virtually every nook and cranny of human experience.”

This was a very quick read with its fair share of thought-provoking moments, although in most parts, it was just preaching which is fine when it’s done rightly and in moderation. My favourite parts were the personal stories which added a genuine touch to the whole experience. All in all, this book is tinted with layers of positivity and a couple shades of inspiration which makes it worth a read!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and Winfred Dr. Neely for sending me an advanced copy of this book.
