  • What are some things that “come at you” each day that can cause you to freak out?
  • Some of these things we can control, some of these we cannot? Which kind of circumstance concerns you more?
  • Discuss the significance of the phrase “the Lord is at hand” in Philippians 4:5 and the command “do not be anxious about anything” in 4:6.
  • Have you ever experienced a peace in your life that did not make sense? Have you seen others walk in such peace?
  • This week read and meditate upon Isaiah 43. We will look at portions of this together next week at our Sunday gatherings.
