Here’s the verse I shared on my weekly “Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled” segment on EWTN Radio’s Son Rise Morning Show today…
Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7)
When we’re anxious or feeling like we’re not in control, we sometimes think that worrying is our only option. Not true! In this powerful verse, St. Peter reminds us to give our anxieties to the Lord because He cares about us. Wow! No matter what you’re going through today, make it a point to give it to the Lord. He doesn’t want you to be anxious. He wants you to turn to Him because He loves you.
Give it a try and see what happens!
“The need for clear, orthodox Catholic knowledge is crucial for understanding the truth of Jesus Christ and his way of life. The next step is to discern among many good choices what is conducive to accomplishing the will of God for each of us individually. Gary Zimak shows how knowing God’s will opens up great adventures that give God greater glory and praise in everything we do!”

Great question, right? Over the years, I have felt that I was being called to do many things…
- Get married
- Become a priest
- Become a permanent deacon
- Change jobs
- Get more involved in my parish
- Work for a parish or diocese
- Pursue full time ministry
- Quit full time ministry
- Sell my house
- Adopt a child
As I struggled to determine what God wanted me to do in each of these cases, I learned a thing or two. To be totally honest, I continue to learn things about the discernment process every day. Sometimes following God’s will involves taking a radical step, but often it just involves accepting what happens in your daily life. Based on my personal experience, however, I now have a much clearer idea of the steps that can be taken to hear God’s voice. I’ve also learned that trying to discern God’s will isn’t something that should be done once or twice in a lifetime. Rather, it’s something that we should do every day. Fortunately, with a little practice, we can often do this without too much thought (especially when it comes to every day decisions).
My latest book – Faith, Hope, and Clarity: How to Know God’s Will is now available for pre-order (see the link below) and will give you a set of steps to assist you in following God’s will – today, tomorrow and for the rest of your life. I use the material contained in this book every day and I’m confident that following these steps will allow you to hear God speak more clearly to you.
Next week, I’ll begin sharing endorsements for the book from notable Catholic personalities. Stay tuned!
For those of you who are following my nightly walk through the Catechism of the Catholic Church on my radio show, HERE is the best place to get your copy or view it online. I personally think it’s good to have a paper version of the book, but many people like to read it online (or use both). No matter how you read it, it’s a GREAT book!
Here’s my final announcement (for this week, anyway!)
As many of you know, I am a cradle Catholic and I have attended Mass every Sunday for as long as I can remember. Given that information, it may come as a surprise if I tell you that for most of my life I never knew Christ personally, worried constantly, rarely prayed and made no effort to live out my Catholic Faith in the world.
On January 26 at 8 PM Eastern, you’ll have a chance to hear my conversion story as I visit Marcus Grodi on the EWTN TV series, The Journey Home. I hope you’ll be able to watch the show, especially if you’re eager to have a closer personal relationship with Jesus. No matter how distant the Lord seems to you, He is closer than you think and He wants to be your friend. Tune in on January 26 and let me share my story with you!
Happy New Year! Here’s the third in a series of four announcements that I’ve been making all week…
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get to know God better in 2015? Have you ever wished that you could know Jesus personally and ask Him to become intimately involved in every area of your life? Do you sometimes feel that you should know more about the teachings of the Catholic Church?
Here’s some good news for you. The Catechism of the Catholic Church will help you with each of those areas. Unfortunately, the size of the book (900+ pages) and our busy schedules can easily make us believe that it’s not practical to read through it. No problem!
On January 5, 2015 on The Gary Zimak Show on BlogTalkRadio I will begin walking through the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Together, we’ll discuss this great document for 30 minutes each night. I’ll start at the beginning and keep going until I reach the end. Whether you’ve read the Catechism before or never even looked at it, I can promise you that you’re going to hear the contents presented in a new and practical way. I’ll make every effort to ensure that you have a better understanding of God, a better relationship with Christ, a clearer understanding of the teachings of the Catholic Church and the ability to apply them to your daily life. I hope you can tune in on Monday, January 5 at 8 PM Eastern. All programs will be archived and can be downloaded from my BlogTalkRadio page and iTunes. See you on Monday!
Announcement #4 is coming tomorrow…
Continuing with my series of special announcements, on January 5 I’ll be visiting Johnnette Benkovic on her EWTN television series Women Of Grace. All week, Dr. Greg Popcak and I will be discussing an important topic – Help…I’m Worrying Myself To Death! If you’re someone who is looking to escape from worry and stress, don’t miss this 5 episode series (Jan 5-9, 2015). I had a great time taping the shows and I’m confident you’ll enjoy them!
Check back tomorrow for announcement 3 of 4…
