Episode #4 Show Notes

Hosts: Jinda Reinig, Kimberly Willess, and Dr. Warren Lamb

Topic: Anxiety

Summary

What is anxiety? What causes it? Is there a solution other than medication? In this episode, Dr. Warren Lamb compares and contrasts the clinical approach with the biblical approach and discusses why biblical soul care for anxiety is more viable. Part of the discussion includes a case study of a person who still walks in freedom from debilitating anxiety.

Takeaways

  • Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive fear and anxiety, often rooted in a lack of trust and belief in God's control and goodness.
  • Toxic shame and a distorted self-worth can contribute to anxiety, but shifting focus and believing in God's nature and character can help overcome it.
  • Comparing oneself to others and feeling entitled to a pain-free life can perpetuate anxiety and hinder healing.
  • Understanding that God is aware of our circumstances and has a greater plan can provide comfort and peace in the midst of anxiety.
  • Teaching others about self-worth and helping them understand God's love and protection can be a powerful tool in overcoming anxiety. Breathing techniques like box breathing can help take control of the body's response to anxiety.
  • Medication may not address the underlying causes of anxiety and can have limitations in treating depression and anxiety.
  • Resiliency factors play a crucial role in preventing ongoing woundedness from traumatic events.
  • History does not define us, and we have the power to change our beliefs and narrative around anxiety.

Scripture Mentioned

Genesis 50:20

Warrenisms

“Anxiety is like running around trying to put out fires that have not been lit.”

“History is not destiny. Our history does not define us; it merely explains us.”
