And we are on to day number 2! I apologize for the delayed post, still working out some kinks amid a busy time in our lives but I hope to have it all up and running on regular schedule by the end of this week! I hope you all enjoyed my first post. I will be adding a link back to the earlier post each day so if anyone missed a day, it will be easy to find the post before. 🙂 OK, here it is! Have a good day and God bless!
See Day #1 post here!
Scripture Reading: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly♥
Today we are told to be anxious for nothing…..but how many of us constantly struggle with anxiety?? I know I have and still do! I’ve worried and stressed over something so much that I had full-blown anxiety attacks!! This isn’t at all how God has planned the life of a believer to be. He designed prayer so that we could take all our anxieties to Him. We don’t need to worry or stress or be anxious. God’s got it all figured out.
Once again thanksgiving is also included in the package. We need to look at all our blessings and be thankful to our creator and remember how wonderful He has been. He will take care of our troubles, but we need to be thankful for all we already have. Even for those troubles because it means God has blessed us with another day. When we do this, a peace that is beyond our comprehension will come over us. Isn’t that such an amazing promise? It’s a miracle even considering the world today, with all its spiritual conflicts and political dramas. It just fills me with thanksgiving.
See how it all comes full circle? We thank, the Lord gives and we are filled again with thanksgiving. But wait there is even more….
Our minds and hearts can be filled with such cruelty and flesh directed thoughts but when we go to the Lord with our worries and troubles, His amazing peace will guard our hearts and minds! This is such a great promise. It’s well worth taking a little time out of our chaotic world to speak with our Lord. A strong prayer life bring so many promises and so many blessings. <3
“Thank you Lord for your great and wonderful promises. All I can do is praise you when I think of what a life of prayer and a relationship with you rewards. Again and again I thank you! I also just ask that you continue to help me grow stronger in prayer as each and every day of this challenge passes by. Help me to fight against the enemy and his temptations. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen”
