We've all heard and maybe used the term, “Chill out, dude!”—but here’s where it gets personal. Pastor Marc talks to us about what Canadian preacher A. B. Simpson calls “Godly inactivity” in the context of “being still” and “knowing that He is God". If you struggle with busyness, anxiety or worry (and who doesn't?), we trust this message will help you regain your center, and your rest, in Him.
There is often a tremendous gulf between how we see ourselves—often colored by others' perception of us—and how God truly sees us through His eyes of love.
