These days, there’s so much to worry about. But we weren’t made to carry around all of this worry in our hearts. Worry weighs us down—emotionally, mentally, and physically.

It did the same in Bible times, like when Jacob had good reason to worry about his family’s safety. Do you know what this biblical man of God did? He learned to manage his anxiety by giving it all to God—a faithful and powerful tactic that we can all learn to do!

In this podcast episode, I take a closer look at this Bible story to find three ways that we can all—today—break free from worry, give our stress to God, and experience the fullness of joy He wants for us.
