‘ Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions & 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 & settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the centre of your life.’ Philippians 4:6-7 MSG
This is certainly a word for me today! Sometimes I think I should state my occupation as ‘Professional Worry Wort’. I envy those who seemingly float through life, worry & anxiety not a part of their daily routine. ” Oh, I want that !”
” But you can have it……Bring those burdens that weigh so heavily on you, limiting you, to me……And let go completely. Don’t give them over with one hand, secretly holding on with the other. I have it covered, trust me, rest in me, allow me to be the centre of your being.”
His still small voice always knows where to find me.
Worry, anxiety & fear are not a part of His plan for my life…your life. Let go with both hands. Empty hands can then be filled with His victory, confidence & peace.
‘Peace with God brings the peace of God. It is a peace that settles our nerves, fills our mind, floods our spirit,& in the midst of the uproar around us, gives the assurance that everything is alright.’ – Bob Mumford
