Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Is anxiety your constant companion? We've all been there, but we don't have to let those racing thoughts control us. It's time to let God help you win the war on worry and start living a life full of calm.
Anxious for Nothing, from pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado, provides a practical and powerful roadmap for battling with and healing from anxiety. Combining hopeful scripture with timeless stories, Max will equip you with the tools you need to overcome your anxieties, no matter what you're facing.
Throughout Anxious for Nothing, Max reminds each of us that God has more in store for us than a life defined by the things we dread. Max invites us to take a closer look at Philippians 4:6-7--one of the most highlighted passages of any book in the world:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Max shares the story of the apostle Paul in a new light, giving us everyday insights into how we can all replace our angst and trepidation with true gratitude and peace. Max will also teach you how to:
- Reframe the way that you view your fears and stressors
- Receive bad news through a lens of sovereignty
- Tell yourself the truth in every stressful situation
- Leave your worries with the Lord and meditate on the good things in your life
Each copy of Anxious for Nothing also includes questions for reflection that will give you the opportunity to dive even deeper into the lessons you'll learn in every chapter.
You deserve to discover a life characterized by calm instead of chaos. Join Max on the journey to lasting freedom from your anxiety and embrace joy, clarity, and contentment as you learn to be Anxious for Nothing.

In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.
Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.
UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
