Go on over and read Serenity’s 23 post from today. It’s right on time because worry is what I constantly struggle with. I am not a gloom and doom type personality but I constantly have worry and doubt in the back of my mind.
I especially loved the Scripture she used at the end of the post:
“It is the Lord who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit-depressed, dismayed and unnerved with alarm]. Deuteronomy 31:8
If you have written a lot about the things that you “worry” about, the things that are unknown and you don’t know how they are going to turn out and you may even be afraid of what the future may hold, I’m going to challenge you today to NOT list any worries that you have. I’m going to ask you to think about the things that worry you and turn those statements around to include what God’s word says about your fears, worries and those things. I would like you to fill today’s entry up with thanksgiving and assuredness that God is going before you to take care of whatever is uncertain for you.
I needed to read that today.
Today’s prayer petitions:
- E at Giving Thought, Giving Sight whose mom is having surgery today.
- T who found out her cousin was brain dead just this morning.
- My friend M, who is praying that her boyfriend M gets good news about a job opportunity that he interviewed for.
- My friend N, who is under a lot of stress at her job as she works with the rest of her team to wrap up a very large and visible project.
As always, if you need prayer email me or leave me a comment. :)
