Don't Worry Be Happy

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6

Worry - ugggghhhhh - I don't know about you but worrying is a big part of my life. I worry about money. I worry about my job. I worry about my family. I worry about my kid. It is so hard not to worry sometimes. You know as a Christian that worrying shouldn't be a part of your life, but it is so hard to fight off that feeling and to give things to God.

What things do you worry about? How can we find peace in the midst of all the stress? Once you pray about something - do you continue to hang on to those things that you asked God to handle?

Today, let's give our cares and burdens to Him and then trust that he is guiding our lives and that we are in the palm of His hand.

Hope everyone has a great day today!


  1. Great thoughts! Worry is a big thing that I really have a hard time dealing with. It is nice to find that peace that comes when we truly give all of our worries over to God. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I think worry is a struggle for all of us, but I think especially for us ladies, wives, and moms. Satan definitely tries to rob me of my job through worry. Thanks for the scriptures and for reminding us that we all are in the same boat and we all need Him to help us let go of those things that we can't control. Good thoughts! :)

  3. I agree Anna- this is definitely one of Satan's biggest tools. If he (Satan) can just keep us in that mind set then isn't he achieving what he wants to achieve? It does take away our joy! Good point.
