As we practice our faith today, I am reminded that we are told “Do not be anxious in anything” in Philippians 4:6. That is easier said than done.
Especially during these present challenging times, it is easy to be anxous. Anxious about the future, about our health, about the health of those we care about and about the economy.
However, the opposite of anxiety is peace. Peace comes from trusting God. Trust is built with God as we grow in our relationship with Him and learn more and more that He is trustworthy.
What do you need to do today to grow your trust in God? Do you need to pray, read God’s Word, talk to others about God or hear someone else speak about God? Whatever that practice that God is leading you to will grow that relationship and God will wash away your anxiety with the power of His great love.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.Philippians 4:6
Blessings, I look forward to all we have planned for Holy Week and I look forward even more to gathering with you live online at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 12 to celebrate the resurrection on Easter,
