I am clear on what I am to do: Refuse to worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything and give thanks. Intentionally. All week.
I’ve learned thanking God breaks through worry and brings peace. Taking time to give thanks is worth making it a life value:
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7, NLT).
Gratitude changes life. I speak from experience. When I’ve given into worry, everything else in my life is impacted, including my family and friends.
It’s a great week to make the resolution to not worry about anything. Underline anything.
- Don’t worry about anything.
- Pray about everything.
- Tell God about every need.
- Thank God for all He has done.
Simple. Powerful. Incredible.
