Pray on.

It’s so easy to get caught up in our day to day lives.  We worry about all the little details, trying to make everything perfect.  Trying to please everyone. We sometimes end up upset or even worse mad when things don’t turn out the way we think they should.  Why do we do these things to ourselves?

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

Have you ever had the peace of God warm over you?  It’s like the sun rising and warming your face.  It’s the feeling of snuggling up to a newborn baby.  Or holding a loved one’s hand.

There have been many times in my life where I could have chosen to break down.  Yet, I chose to ask God for help.  My anxious moments became peaceful moments.  Of course, there have also been times I was so caught up in emotion that I didn’t stop and pray, and I let the situation control me.  I ended up feeling like I’d been beaten up.  It’s hard, I know, when you are deep in a situation to just stop and pray.  But it really, really works.

If you are dealing with any type of frustration today, I encourage you to ask God for His help….ask Him for peace.  He will not dissapoint you!
