Verse for the Day

"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

Do you ever feel anxious?  Could you use a little peace right now?  Each of us face these feelings most of the time on a daily basis.  Life can throw so many things at us that we must know how to counteract all of the stress.  It has never been God's intention for us to live a frazzled fast pace life where we don't know if we are coming or going.  

God said to not be anxious over anything.  We can let Him know what we need in these situations and accept that He is working in our lives.  When we realize that God is working to bring about good for us then we acknowledge that He is ultimately in control.  Surrendering this control to God gives us peace, because we know we aren't the one who has to fix everything.  We can trust that He knows best and will work all things out for our good and His glory.  Peace...sweet peace that you certainly can't buy and often times we learn the hard way about trusting and living in this peace.
