Tossing and Turning

All of us have things that keep us up at night, tossing and turning. What does the future hold for me? Does the Bible even talk about that? Is God too big to worry about my everyday life concerns?

Tossing and Turning: The Anxiety of Choosing
Jonah 2:1-10
Acts 1:15-17, 21-26
Rev. Bill Wilson, Chews UMC

Making a decision can feel like hammering the nails into the coffin of opportunities. We agonize over making the wrong decision. Whatever decision we make, we can never stray so far that we are beyond God’s redeeming grace.

Tossing and Turning: Storage Wars
Luke 12:16-21
1 Kings 17:2-16
Rev. Ronell Howard

Financial matters wake us up in the middle of the night and can make us sleepless. The world teaches us we can be free from the anxiety of money when we have more of it. But the Bible says having more doesn’t set us free but being content does.

The Future
Isaiah 41:10-13
Rev. Ronell Howard

Fear
Deuteronomy 31:1-8
Rev. Ronell Howard

Fear is a natural response to a threat. All of us wrestle with fears. The good news is that whatever fear we are facing, we never face it alone.
