Don’t Worry…

The word "worry" is an Old English word which literally means "to choke", "to strangle". When you're worrying it chokes the life out of your life. You were not made to worry. Worry is a learned response. So how do we unlearn worry? Learn to put God first in every area of your life.
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33
This is the starting point. You've got to set your priorities deciding what is going to be number one in my life.
You don’t have to worry about pleasing everybody else. You just center in on pleasing God and it will always be the right thing to do. He can heal your worries.
Worry is a warning light on the dashboard of your life that flashes saying, "Something else is taking priority in my life besides God." If God is number one in my life and I seek Him first, then all these other things, the Bible says, will be added unto me.
God says, “Don't worry! Put me first in your time, and your finances. Do you really want to know if you are putting God first in your life? Check you calendar and your bank statement. They will tell you what has priority in your life.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
