BOOK BLURB: Samara lives a life filled with fear. After being discarded and beaten by her drug dealing boyfriend, she takes one easy out after another. Her choices lead her down the road of self-destruction, into the degrading world of stripping and a life spent looking over her shoulder. Until an encounter with a stranger on a Kings Cross Street provides the catalyst for a life changing event that leads her back home. She is forced to face the mess she left behind, the disappointment of her father, and the memories of the man who broke her heart. What will she do when danger follows her to paradise? From the bright lights of Sydney to the blue waters of Resolution Island, Beyond Resolution is a story that provides a window into the joy of forgiveness, trust and peace.

I have found the best way to deal with fear/anxiety is to ask Jesus to help me. If you ask, you will feal His peace flood your soul. And not only that, whatever the issue is - He will help you by showing you the path you should take to take care of whatever is bothering you!
Debra, I've come to understand that you must 'Ask' to receive, so your reply really resonates with me. I recently had a conversation with my 13-year-old son, Tully about his need to ask - not expect, or demand, or assume, but to ASK, humbly and with faith. I agree with you - the Lord will always take care of His own.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Isaiah 41:10 is a 'go-to' verse for me for dealing w/ fear and anxiety. ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
And also the reminder in Phil 4:6-7 to bring our requests to the Lord with thanksgiving and He will give us the peace that passes all understanding and guards our hearts and minds in Christ.
I love those verses, Anne.
The one that comes instantly to my mind is Psalm 121:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Isn't it a blessing to be able to recall these verses as a reminder to us that the Lord is always in control.
Thank you for sharing.
Praise and worship are mighty tools against fear and anxiety.
They sure are, Caryl.
Praise and worship will calm the wildest storms of life - and bring the greater perspective that is such a wonder of our faith.
Thank you for sharing.
I love singing 80s tunes. But Queen helps me relax,
I love the 80's too, Victoria.
Every day my 13-year-old is subjected to my 80's music in the car. He's been resistant to its charms for most of his life, but I finally have him singing along enthusiastically to REO Speedwagon. :-) I consider it a good taste breakthrough.
Thank you for sharing.
3. It Is Well With My Soul is a hymn gives me comfort and strength. I also love Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. I know that even though His Plan may include pain and suffering, it will never defeat me!
