Phillipians 4:6-7-A New Year's resolution!
"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you
do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful
than the human mind mind can understand. his peace will gaurd your
hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:6-7 NLV
We all make mistakes, it's inevitable because we are human with
sinful tendancies living in a sinful world. Come January, we get caught
up with our cultures' bandwagon mentality that we need to make a "new
year's resolution." Wether it be to quit a nasty habit, start excersizing,
stop eating so much- or whatever... they are all good intentions that
(more often than not)-fail due to our lack of discipline and wandering
eyes. I believe the Lord wants to get our attention with His Word when
it comes to our goals and desires. Phillipians 4:6-7 is a simple yet profound
truth. Stop worrying, keep praying- have a thankful heart and you
will live a life of peace and contentment!
As we begin another year- let's fix our eyes on the Lord and make
a "resolution" to stop worrying so much and strive to live a life marked
by prayer! Regardless of our needs on the journey- relationships, our body
image struggles, financial concerns etc., we have all we need for direction
through an intimate prayer life, trusting the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and
the written Word of God.
Happy New Year -God's richest blessings in 2007!
