There are a lot of things that can trouble our hearts. A list was recently published that catalogs the types of things that tend to trouble our hearts—that cause us to worry. Here is a partial list:
- Health and weight.
- Parenting and children/grandchildren.
- Lack of savings and an uncertain financial future. And the number one worry is:
- Getting old!
We spend a lot of time worrying and fretting. Statistics indicate that the average person spends over 14 hours per week worrying. That would total over 700 hours worrying a year. That would be the equivalent of close to 30 days a year! If you lived to be 80, you would have worried away over 6years of your life!
The good news is that you do not need to worry. Your heart does not need to be troubled. Today I want to share with you “truths for troubled hearts” that will encourage and help you.
Let’s open our Bibles to John 14:1-6.
