What makes me anxious? I now have two teenagers learning how to drive! My daughter earned her Learner’s Permit last week, and I’ve entered a whole new stratosphere of worry. While on vacation earlier this summer, I took her out for a couple pre-permit lessons. After the first outing, she proudly told her mom, “I got up to a whole 20 mph!” We have a long way to go…and a lots of opportunity for anxiety. I’m feeling anxious just writing about it!
Philippians 4:6 says we are not to be anxious about anything. (Which makes me certain Paul had no experience teaching a teenager how to drive the horse cart.) And when Jesus taught about anxiety in the passage we will study this week, He said not to worry about life. Since He wasn’t in the habit of asking us to do the impossible, what did He mean? This Sunday, we dive into this complex topic of anxiety and find a simple, straight-forward teaching about stress, insecurity, worry…whatever makes us anxious. Until then, I’ll be hyperventilating in the passenger seat, gripping the dash with white knuckles while stomping an imaginary brake pedal as we careen down the roads of Lancaster County at 20 mph!
Be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare for worship.
Hope to see you this Sunday!
