Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
It seems impossible to be “anxious about nothing,” like truly truly impossible. Seems we have worries around every corner we look. Whether it is for our jobs or in our homes or being anxious about our friendships, ugh. Paul has the perfect advice for us all… TURN THOSE WORRIES INTO PRAYERS. Maybe a goal should be to worry less and pray more? Whenever you feel a worry coming on, pray, my friends, PRAY!!
True peace can not be found by just “thinking more positively” or just having good feelings, it comes from knowing God is in control. We need to rest in the fact that our destiny is set, we are already citizens in Christ’s kingdom… thank goodness!!
My challenge to myself and to all of us is: Let God’s peace guard your heart against anxiety. Seems once we are able to surrender our angst over to God we will be able to truly experience peace.
Let me neither faint nor fear,
Feeling still that You are near,
In the course my Savior trod,
Tending still to You, my God.
