“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. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” ~ Philippians 4:6-9
This passage keeps coming up in my devotional time. Just when I think I’m getting a handle on the worrying thing… God, are you trying to tell me something?
There is nothing I cherish more than God’s peace. I’m getting there. What I’m discovering is this… it is a daily commitment. I have to choose each day to trust God. As I do this, His peace comes. The process of thinking on good things is a discipline. Lord, help me discipline my mind to think on good things so I can experience Your peace.
