Stop Worrying?

My Facebook wall is flooded with articles and images that convey the same message: “Stop worrying. You are exactly where you’re meant to be.” “Stop worrying. It’s all going to work out in the end.” “Stop worrying. This was meant to be.” “Stop worrying. God has a plan for you.” You get the gist. You’ve…
