“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)
“Anxiety is a fierce opponent with which you may wrestle, and sometimes you may find that it has pinned you to the mat. To loose yourself from anxiety’s hold – or avoid the battle all together – you need the Holy Coach’s help.
When anxiety begins to push at your thoughts, when a problem is on the horizon, immediately run to God, then pray, petition, and thank. The situation may not be resolved as you had imagined, but you will know you received the result God was looking for – and be left with God’s shield of peace, a transcendent gift beyond all understanding.
Prayer: God, thank You for providing peace today right when and where I need it. I trust You to reign in every detail. Amen.
