While last Sunday was Easter, we should view every Sunday as a day set aside to remember that Christ died for us and rose from the dead. A day of thanksgiving and of renewal. A perfect start to each new week.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians is one of my favorite books of the Bible. I think these verses above are perfect for this Sunday and this tough time we are going through. Give your worries and concerns to God.
“Do not be anxious about anything…” That’s a tough one for me as I like to hang onto everything. It’s like I’m telling God, “Here, I’ll hold this for You.” It should be the other way around. I’m not doing Him any favors by holding onto all that causes me grief and anxiety. This week, I will work on this specifically. Give it to the Lord.
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding…” I remember living in that peace a long time ago. It was amazing. But I let life get in the way and I struggle now to find peace. I will work on that as well. I believe when I surrender all to Him, I won’t have to find that peace. It will find me.
Thank you for sharing your Sunday with me. Give your worries to God. Let His strength be your strength, and may His peace give you comfort. Rejoice in this day!
And always be grateful in everything. In good times and in bad. Just be grateful. ♥️
It’s coffee time!
