The Problem With Problems by Larry Wynn

THE PROBLEM WITH PROBLEMS
NEHEMIAH 4: 10-23
JANUARY 7, 1996 A.M. SERVICE

INTRODUCTION

A. YOU KNOW IT'S GOING TO BE A BAD YEAR WHEN:

1. THE GOVERNMENT NOTIFIES YOU THAT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY
NUMBER HAS BEEN REVOKED.

2. YOUR PERSONAL COMPUTER THREATENS TO TELL ALL.

3. AS THE MOVING VAN STARTS TO UNLOAD NEXT DOOR, THE FIRST

4. YOU NEW BOSS ASKS IF THEY'VE FILLED YOUR OLD POSITION YET.

5. YOUR PACEMAKER IS RECALLED BY THE MANUFACTURER.

B. IT'S A NEW YEAR: ONE THINGS FOR SURE. IT WILL NOT BE PROBLEM

1. PROBLEMS ARE A REAL PART OF REAL LIFE. UNLIKE THE TV

2. A GROUP OF PSYCHIATRISTS MET TOGETHER IN BUFFALO TO

C. TODAY'S MESSAGE IS DESIGNED TO HELP EACH OF US DEALS WITH THE
PROBLEMS THAT WILL ARISE IN THE MANY AREAS OF OUR LIVES THIS
YEAR.

ILL. FIRST, THINK OF ALL THE AREAS OF YOUR LIFE WHERE THINGS COULD
GO WRONG DURING THE NEXT 365 DAYS. EXCUSE ME! 366, THIS IS A
LEAP YEAR. (ONE MORE DAY FOR PROBLEMS TO OCCUR!)

A. LOSE THEIR STRENGTH. "THE STRENGTH OF THE BURDEN BEARERS IS
FAILING . . . "

1. THE TENDENCY IS TO LOSE STRENGTH: PHYSICALLY,
EMOTIONALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY.

2. PEOPLE SURROUNDED BY PROBLEMS BECOME VULNERABLE.

3. MOUNTING PROBLEMS LEAD TO STRESS THAT LEADS TO FATIGUE.
