What do you worry about? School? Friendships? Something else?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get God’s advice about the things we worry about?
Well guess what, we can. Check out the verse below:
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 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.”
I worry about a lot of things, big and small. Big things like my future and little things like missing my daily login rewards in my favourite game. The verse above is a great reminder that we serve a God who wants to hear from us. Our needs. The things we are thankful for. Everything.
Sometimes when we worry what we need most is someone to talk to. God knows that and says you can tell him about 'everything'. That alone often helps me feel better and a step towards the 'peace, that exceeds anything you can understand' promised by the verse.
Praying reminds us that we matter to God. He wants His best for us and has a plan for our lives. He wants to 'guard our hearts and minds' against the things that worry us. All we need to do is share our worries and don’t forget to thank him for the many great things He has done for us.
God wants to hear from us.
The things we are thankful for. Everything.
While you are at it, thank Him for what is going well and let God replace your worry with peace.
