Mar 17 2019 Surrendering Our Lives to Him / Matthew 8:14-22

Feb 10 2019 Anchoring Our Hearts to Him / Matthew 6:25-34

When our eyes move to the things of this world, our hearts follow. When our hearts begin to drift away from God to the things of this world, anxiety comes because life is unpredictable.
