When your stress leads you to the end of your rope, what should you do? Simple. Change what’s at the end of your rope. Swap out your big fear for a big God. Today, we’ll show you how to do that.
You can practice everything we’ve talked about so far to help you lessen your worry, anxiety and stress. But sometimes that’s not enough. What if a large part of the problem with your stress is the source and frequency of the information pouring into your life. Has the rise of social media and 24/7 communication made it easier to be at peace, or more difficult? And what can you do about it?
Dealing with stress as an adult is one thing. But what about your kids? More and more teens seem to struggle with stress, worry, anxiety and depression than ever before. In this message, Carey not only looks at scripture, he interviews Dr. Rob Meeder, a pediatrician who specializes in treating teens and children for depression and anxiety. Together, they’ll share practical ways to help destress your kids and help them deal with anxiety.
Understanding the source of your stress is one thing. But what can you do about it? After all, so much of life feels out of control: work, how people respond to you, your family, the political situation. The question is...if God is in control, is there anything you can or even should do about these things. What’s your role? And what’s God’s role?
So you’re stressed, worried or even anxious. What’s going on? It’s like everything you stress over is attached to something bigger, and once you see it, you can deal with it. If you follow the trail of your stress, it will take you to your deepest fears. So here’s a question. What’s at the end of your rope? You may be surprised to discover the answer. And what’s at the end of your rope says a lot about why you worry and how to reduce your anxiety. If I follow the trail of your stress, it’ll take me to your deepest fear.
Happy couples decide they owe each other everything but are owed nothing in return. But that requires effort. Every married person makes a choice every day. That choice feels more like a reaction, so most people don't think they have a choice at all. But they do. Happy couples make the happy choice.
We all enter into marriage with hopes, dreams, and desires. They create expectations. But when you put those expectations onto your spouse, it turns your marriage into a debt/debtor relationship. Your relationship becomes marked by the belief that your spouse owes you something. So, how do you keep your hopes, dreams, and desires from becoming expectations?
Three weeks ago we started a brand new 7-part sermon series titled "The Problem of God", looking at common problems that skeptics have with God.
We started with "The Problem of God's Existence."
