Phillipians 4:6-7

The Lord gave me this verse the other day as I was praying about something that I had to do. It has stuck with me all week. I love it! I just have to be faithful to believe it in those anxious times!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (NKJV)

As if that didn't make me feel better, I read it in another translation and it hit me even harder! I have recently discovered The Message and I love what it said for these two verses!!

Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (The Message)

Amazingly put!!
