You just read that title above and started to worry didn’t you? That thing, that date, that illness, that doctors appointment, that meeting, is in the very front of your mind as we speak. You are distraught. You are not sleeping. You are not eating. Your behavior is starting to become destructive. Worry has consumed you.
Let me remind you today, that worry does not own you and it does not have to control you. Today, here at Christ’s Church we are going to talk about what it means to Sabotage Satan’s plan of causing us to be worriers. Before we gather for that, or for those of you far away from here, here are some thoughts to get you thinking and ready for today.
