Overview: In this message, Scotty discussed how many of us struggle with feeling worried and anxious. For some, we can pinpoint our worry back to a specific source, but for others, anxiety can have an unknown cause or be caused by seemingly everything. Scotty reminded us that Anxiety isn’t a sin, it’s a signal. And getting help is not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of wisdom. So what do we do when we are feeling anxious? Here are 4 practical steps that can help when you are anxious:

  1. Write It Down
  2. Don’t Ignore Your Body
  3. Say It Out Loud
  4. Focus On What I Can Control
