This really blessed me today, and I want to share it with all of you!
Philippians 4:4-7, Message Version
4-5Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you're on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life!
I love the way this passage sounds in the message version... its just so clear!
This is exactly what I needed to hear this morning. I tend to stress and worry. All the time. But I feel so much peace and reassurance now. I want to get this deep into my heart and never forget it :)
