"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 comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB)
It's easy to become anxious about all sorts of things. From stress at work to hoping and praying our kids turn out to be civilized human beings. It seems as though there is always something to be anxious about. Paul encourages us to refocus our anxious energy towards prayer and supplication. The result he says is a peace that passes all understanding. I've been in a few "peace doesn't make sense" type of situations in the past and to be honest it's a weird feeling. Everything around you is screaming panic, fear and anxiety and yet all you feel is calm. It doesn't make sense at first until you realize from where it is sourced. I challenge you to refocus your anxious energy into something far more profitable.
Be encouraged and keep moving forward.
