  • I worry about everything.
    I worry about bills, friendships, mistakes, today, tomorrow — you name it, I worry a lot.
    In these uncertain times and with the state of the world, who doesn’t worry? Well, I often have to check myself and remember what the word of God tells us about worry.
    In Psalm 37:8, “do not fret — it leads only to evil.”
    The synoptic books Matthew and Luke both have specific similar commands to the disciples from Christ.
