It's A Wonderful Life
December 2nd, 2013 -- Philippians 4:6
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
As Christians this verse can be hard to follow. I mean really "don't be anxious about anything" that's almost laughable, if it didn't make complete sense! Really sit in that let it marinade as to what we are being told..if we are anxious, stressed, consumed by our problems/situations how can we get on with the business of living? Enjoying this one life we get? Making the most out of our problems/situations? Looking and really seeing what is good and positive in our lives? The answer is we can't do any of that if we don't first have faith and believe that God has our backs has our situations covered. That we can handle what is being thrown our way and we will prevail.
If we are distracted with anxiousness gloom and doom we can't move forward in working to make our problems/situations better and overcome them. So in every situation lift it up to prayer and ask for the guidance and strength needed to advance yourself forward. Do it with a thankful heart even in the midst of the problem knowing truly knowing it will all work out to your benefit.
There are many versus that help to guide us and this most certainly is one of them...Wonderful!
