It's everywhere today. The stress of 2020 has created so much worry, fear, and anxiety. It's so important to make a distinction between them, in order to address them effectively.
First Dr. Dodd looks at: Worry. Unwarranted fear or worry is always based on something in our imagination or our memory. It is the fear that we manufacture...in other words, it's a choice.
Then: Fear. In general, fear is a reaction to something very specific...an observable danger. Fear can make us "run for cover."
And finally: Anxiety. Whereas fear relates to a known or understood threat, anxiety is a result of an unknown or poorly defined threat. Being anxious about all the "unknowns."
Join Dr. Dodd as he shares some very practical tips on how to address each of them.

Quick question, do you believe in angels? Or, have you ever seen, felt, experienced an angel?? What would it be like to have an angel say to you, "...you are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Dr. Dodd invites you to listen to the experience of two different individuals in the scripture, who not only saw and heard, but actually talked to an angel! He asks us to consider, how those two separate encounters can challenge us, in our day-to-day lives.
"Well...I'm sorry, but I don't trust you or anyone else!" "If you had been through what I've been through, you wouldn't trust anyone either!" Another's comments, "I know...I give way too much trust, too quickly, to too many people! And then I just hope and pray I don't get burned!" Any of this sound familiar?? Join as Dr. Dodd looks at the essential ingredient of trust, from three different perspectives, and discusses why trustworthiness is so foundational to every relationship!
