Facebook Scripture Challenge: Day 4 of 7

Scripture: Philippians 4:6-8


Heart's Musings


How easy it is to say to somebody, "do not be anxious about anything." What person does not get worried about the things in life? Where can you find such person?

I worry a lot of things. My family, specially. As a mom, I worry about the safety of my girls. I worry about the health of my husband. I worry about finances. I worry about the well-being of my family from miles away. I worry a lot of things, big and small.

However, reading what is written on Philippians 4:6-8 makes a difference on how I must approach this issue. This passage reminds me of how I can slay the concerns of my mind that give me nothing, but a sense of defeat.

The Father knows that there are times we get anxious about something. But He doesn't want us to feel lost when we are caught in the situation. He gave us encouragement on what to do whenever we find ourselves falling in the trap of mental and emotional distress. What must we do? Simply lift up our concerns to Him with thanksgiving and praise. Surely He will guard our hearts and minds. He promised to give us His shalom, peace.

Blooming in Grace,
