Philippians 4:6 - Be Anxious For Nothing

Yesterday I had a Phil 4:6 moment.  We had a garage door repair guy out and I was stressed before he even arrived about the potential cost.  I really had myself worked up about it (and didn't know how worked up I was).  How would we repair this and build the chicken coop that our new flock needed?  The repair guy not only fixed it to the point where it will close, he got the garage door opener to work too, which we haven't been able to use for over 6 months.  All of that will cost us $89 if we don't replace the panel that could use replacing.  If we replace that panel, it won't cost us extra.  My first thought was "Why do I ever doubt You are taking care of us, Lord?"

Something I am doing this morning is just meditating on that first phrase "be anxious for nothing" and asking what is really weighing me down.  What do I need to give up?  And are the things I am concerned with included in the admonition of that scripture?  Quick answer is yes.  Long answer is do I believe it?

Praying a day of peace and love and an uncovering of what's weighing you down.

  1. Hi,

    My name is Jeremiah, from LIFE SENTENCE Publishing in Abbotsford Wisconsin. We have a small base of bloggers who review books for us, and after a few months of tweaking how our blog tours are run, we’re now ready to take it to the next level.

    If you’re interested in joining our blog tours, we’ll send you a monthly email featuring our upcoming blog tours (see sample: http://eepurl.com/3y1C9). If you like any or all of the titles, you simply request the books via a signup form on our website (http://www.lifesentencepublishing.com/blogbooks4life-request/).

    You’ll receive the book in a week or less, read it (of course : ), write your blog post about the book, and add a link to the book’s blog tour page.

    Note: We do occasional fun things such as coffee gift card giveaways to keep everyone caffeinated and to drive traffic to our blog tour pages.

    If you’d like to join us on our blog tours, you can subscribe to the monthly featured-titles email here: www.lifesentencepublishing.com/bloggers.

    Thank you!

    In Christ,
