This quarter we are looking at who God is and how we can develop a closer relationship with Him. In anticipation of this week’s message let me ask you a question: have you ever felt overwhelmed? Have you ever felt anxious about finishing a project on time or paying a bill before the deadline, catching your flight when you’re stuck in traffic or waiting for lab results to the point where the pressure is unbearable? God knows that we all face the temptation to worry about things in our lives, but the good news is, He hasn’t left us alone. Recently Amazon released a list of the most popular passages in some of its bestselling books, such as The Hunger Games, the Harry Potter series, and Pride and Prejudice. Also released, the most highlighted passage in the Holy Bible. Can you guess what it is? Most people, including me, expect it to be something like John 3:16, Psalm 23, or the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. But, no, it was a less prominent text, but one that’s striking a deep cord in today’s worried world. If you want to find out what it is, have your Bible’s ready during today’s message when I share it. May God bless you as we learn more about Him together and how he helps us when we feel overwhelmed.”
