As I’ve watched the news seeing the evidence of mass panic hitting the US over the Coronavirus, I've been tempted to enter into the fears but have an answer.
My path toward rectifying a problem led me to come face to face with God’s purpose and provision. I moved to fix a problem, but God brought me to Himself.

“Hey, I am going to remodel my house while I am preparing for my daughter’s wedding!” Yes, anxiety is a focus problem.
