It’s been a whirlwind for #teamAlmond as Preacherman and I prepared for and made some major life changes. One thing that has kept me constant over the past weeks is this:
“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.” – Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
Over this past weeks, I have found that if I’m worried about something, or if something is making me nervous or apprehensive, I haven’t prayed enough about it and I haven’t truly turned it over to God. Over the past weeks, the faithfulness, provision, and favor of God has been at work in our lives, and at my core, it has been my goal to rest in the providence of God as opposed to be anxious about things that I cannot control.
The hymn is right- “Oh what peace we often forfeit; oh, what needless pain we bear. All because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer.”
Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings!
