Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6-7 NIV

God chooses what will happen next. He prepares us to witness the gifts of His greatness, when we WAIT to be led by His love and calmed by the presence of peace.
Sometimes, it’s hard to recognize when we have been blessed. Difficulties make us feel bitter and lost. We focus on worry and allow fear to consume our thoughts. And we forget God knows how to handle our days. 

Our mighty Creator of heaven and earth has a plan for each of us! He gives purpose in what He provides. And when life brings struggles that are are difficult, He helps us find PEACE in Christ. 

Jesus opens our eyes and reminds us to faithfully TRUST. He humbles our hearts, so we will welcome STRENGTH from the Father. He helps us place our HOPE in Him, as He nurtures the prayers of our praise… 

God WILL create desire in us to be thankful. He will help us understand why we NEED His offering of love. We must PRAISE Him for waking us to another day of life and find reason to love Him even more! 

No matter what we are going through, God will ALWAYS reward the love of our faithfulness. We will find peace, when we learn how it feels to welcome the gift of a grateful heart.

Dear God, Thank you for helping us recognize the power of Your love. You provide HOPE in every season of our lives and help us find STRENGTH in You. Before we complain about the happenings of this day, help us remember who's in charge of ALL things. We will find PEACE in Your presence and embrace an attitude of gratitude, as we welcome the gift of a grateful heart. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for loving and helping us remember why we must not worry. Amen
