Book Reviews

 

"You have done a great job. Very insightful. And you have produced something that will be a huge help to others with similar struggles. I hope it gets out there."

I read Liz Millican’s book, Real Truth for Real Choices: A Spiritual Autobiography. I found this volume conveys an important message that can bring resonance and healing to many. The book is biblically-based and creatively organized. It is difficult to put down once you embark on the first page. I thoroughly endorse the book.

Chapter 1 There’s no avoiding it!

God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him.

Peter

 

I hung up the phone and anxiously waited, knowing what was about to happen. I felt like I was going to be sick, but I knew this was unavoidable.

 

I tried to keep my mind busy as I waited…

 

It wasn’t long before there was a knock at the door. I opened the door to see a police officer standing there.

 

“Elizabeth Millican?”

 

“Yes.”

Life is not just about the events that happen to us. It is also about the lessons that we learn. It is about who we are and who we are becoming.

 

For me, anxiety was a significant struggle. The lies I believed about life and about myself caused me a lot of anxiety. It was paralyzing for a long time. I believed that I wasn’t good at anything and it took me a long time to learn what I was good at. Just because your skills aren’t obvious doesn’t mean you don’t have any. You can always develop new skills, even if you can’t do everything you would like to, you can do better than you think you can. Replace your negative thinking with true statements.

 

My anxiety rested in my perceived abilities, but when I learned to trust in God and His purposes then I was no longer weighed down by anxiety. I stopped letting my ego, or lack there of, get in the way of my desires and just focused on what needed to be done. I also learned to pray for the right things. Instead of praying that our suffering will end, we should pray that we will learn from our suffering. As we learn to pray about everything, we see the effects of our prayers and our faith increases, reducing our anxiety.
