His Peace

Do not be anxious about anything, 
but in every situation, 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.
Phillipians 4:6-7

How gracious is our God!  It is good to be reminded on this beautiful Saturday - one week ended, one week about to begin.  The school year about to start.  New opportunities on the horizon.

How he loves us!  How he shows us - always - in the big and the small, the loud and the soft.

He lives in every atom, every molecule, every seed, leaf, branch, and flower, every insect, every star, every grain of sand.  He lives in every one of us - we are His children.  His precious children.

And he gives us peace.

Thank you, God, for taking my worries and anxieties and transforming them to eagerness and anticipation.  Opportunity and discovery - discovery of Your plan in my life.  Thank you for peace.

  1. Dear Janet
    Oh, it is just so wonderful to talk to our Pappa about anything knowing that He listens and deeply cares!

  2. I need to remember over and over again that I am NOT to be anxious. In my present-day situation, it ain't easy to NOT be anxious, but I want to turn away from anxiety and turn only to HIM. Thank you.

  3. Hi CaryJo,
    I need to remind myself as well. I pray for faith everyday - Can I pray for your present-day situation as well - Janet


I know we probably haven't met in person, but I believe that the sharing of our ideas and thoughts, sometimes our hearts and souls, makes us more than strangers. I would like to say friends. Thank you for taking the time to contribute to my little space - I appreciate you.
