Session #2 Understanding Worries
In this second session we actually can understand where worries come from. Once we know the problem, we then can find a solution.

We all have things that we can worry about!

Just before this session, I received a publication that told me how much it cost for raising one child.(1) I was just getting to like our little one month–old Rebekah. And then the shock! The figure was $241,770– almost a quarter of a million dollars I would spend in the next 17 years for her. And then I started adding ... how many children do I have? Eight! That would be about two million dollars I would need to spend just to raise my children.

We all have lots of things we could worry about, don't we? The great thing about it is that we don't have to worry at all! Once we don't worry, then we can start enjoying life! Today, I'd like to speak with you the joy of life that Jesus offered to His followers.

God wants to release us from worry and in the midst of this turbulent world bring us to His peace. Today's goal is to help each of us understand where worries come from. Once we know the problem, we can see the solution that God has for us. I believe this session can bring revolutionary changes in our views about our worries.

Let us first pray.

"For He has shattered gates of bronze, And cut bars of iron asunder." (Psalms 107:16).

Dear God, we have needlessly soaked ourselves in anxiety. Our hearts have become tough; our doubts have increased. Now is the time for you to shatter the gates of worry leading into our lives. No matter that they are bronze, steel or iron, come on through! The time for advance has come. Come and break down the gates of anxiety and cut away any impeding walls. I welcome You. I desire your peace. Cleanse me by the blood of Christ and live in my life.Help us understand worry. In Christ's Name I pray, Amen.
