"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:6
It is easy to get caught up in the stress of life. Long hours at work, meeting the needs of our children and making sure our spouses are getting our best. There can be a lot to balance.
Not worrying can seem impossible. Fear is a default reaction for most of us. Especially when we've been in stressful situations throughout our life.
Will we have enough money for the future? Are we being the best parents for our children? Is our spouse getting the best of us?
Whatever curve life is throwing at us, we are called to be grateful at all times. We also need to bring all of our concerns, big and small, to the Cross.
God will help us sort through the mess we may be going through. The deeper our relationship with Him, the clearer the answers will be. Prayer is a vital tool for extinguishing fear.
Don't worry about anything, but be grateful and pray about everything!
