You have trouble breathing. Your heart is racing. Your mind? Consumed by the worst of thoughts. Your whole live is plagued by fear, by crippling anxiety. How can you live like that?
Answer: you don’t.
In Live Fearless: A Call to Power, Passion, and Purpose by Sadie Robertson, Robertson details her personal struggle with anxiety and how she went from letting it control her life, to giving control over to the only one who deserves it. God.
You might know Robertson from Duck Dynasty, or from her appearances on Dancing With the Stars. What you don’t know, are the true stories of the battles against fear she fought each night before a performance. Which, to be honest, if you can be absolutely terrified and yet STILL go out on stage, represents and incredible amount of bravery in my opinion. To ignore fear and carry on, is courage in and of itself!
But where did she get that courage from? From prayer, studying the Bible, receiving encouragement from her mentors, and being in constant communication with God
Throughout the book, Sadie Robertson sets apart paragraphs that example how to pray, encouragement for those still struggling, and questions to ponder as you continue your own battle against fear and anxiety.
As an anxious person myself, Sadie Robertson’s uplifting book and positive perspective on life has given me a lot to think about. The verses and life lessons she shared have helped me armor up with the Word of God, so that next time an attack comes, I’ll be prepared to fight it.
