Sermon Notes

Kid Cudi

"I am not at peace. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions"

"There is a raging violent storm inside my heart at all times"

  • Behind the success there is someone with mental distress
  • All of us bring to church a certain look publicly that betrays what's really going on with us privately


  • "I'm paranoid sleeping with my finger on the trigger. My mother's always stressing. I ain't living right but I ain't going out without a fight"
  • He is wrestling with anxiety and worry

Every now and then your mind can be under such an attack that you feel like you are going to lose it.

Suggested Reading: "Shook One" by Charlamagne The God

  • Charlamagne had a panic attack that had him throwed
  • Charlamagne had experienced a set back that messed him up
  • He got fired for the fourth time as a radio personality
  • He was looking forward to big things but got fired because of office politics
  • There is sometimes a political game that goes on in the office that undermines what you are trying to do
  • He found out he was attacked by anxiety
  • The panic attack was a culmination of the setbacks and his body reacting to the toxins that were coming out of his mouth
  • The bible says there is power of life and death in the tongue

Jesus exercised some personal counseling on a group scale

  • Sermon On The Mount: A sermon on Mental Health because they were dealing with so much stress
  • The people were experiencing PTSD

Have you thought about the stress and trauma that Black people go through when turning on the news and seeing other Black persons being killed by the police?

What worries you?

  • The next bill?
  • What's next after graduating from college?
  • Are you the go to person in your family and everyone puts the burden on your shoulders?
  • Worry means to be torn a part and pulled into different directions
  • Whatever is worrying you, take it to another altitude

It's time to reframe your perspective with a birds-eye view

Your significance is in the fact that you are a child of God

While walking with you today, God can already handle your tomorrow. All you have to do is show up.
