What does Jesus say about worry?
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog- it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
1 Thessalonians 5:17

2. Identify yourself with truth – who does God say you are?
3. Changing from the inside out.
4. Change your environment.

He will rejoice over you with singing.”
