What Would Your Life Look Like?
Tuesday we made our “Here are my dreams” list with God, and yesterday we made a list of the things that we are thankful for. It’s been a week of lists, but good lists. Today, and for the rest of the week, we will put all of these prayers, or in this case, ingredients together.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he’s done. 7 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 Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Then, after practicing these thing you will experience God’s Peace.
-Surrendering our worries as if God is big enough to handle them
-Pray about everything
-Tell Jesus what you need...and trust that He knows what He’s doing
-Thank Him for what He’s already done
THEN you will experience peace that is beyond our understanding or logic!
I hear so many hard stories every week, and also have the privilege of walking with a bunch of you through this blog. LIFE IS DIFFICULT. I am not selling these concepts from a vacuum. I know pain and sorrow, and in the midst, this stuff works. Furthermore, remember, Paul (the writer) was writing from prison, beaten, awaiting a trial of potential death, etc., and this was how he found Joy and Peace in the midst! JESUS.
What would your day look like if you applied these principles in all circumstances?
Experiment: Memorize the concepts of this prayer and then apply each step all day long. Do it with us! Peace is available...
