A little encouragement

It is very easy to let life take it's toll on us. There are so many things that we can worry about. We lose sleep with anxiety about our finances or about a stressful situation. It is our nature to fret over our circumstances trying to figure out a solution.

I have found that the most productive thing I can do in these trying situations is to turn the whole thing over to God.

Don't be confused giving it to God is not the same as giving up and it does not make your problems go away. Giving it to God does put your trust and faith in the one who has proven his love grace and faithfulness to provide.

The one verse in the Bible I have leaned on most when the world has tried to knock me down is Philippians 4: 6, 7

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"
