I just want to encourage you today.
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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.
If there’s anything you’re praying for or anything you’re worried about, think about this verse and make your request known to God. Believe that He will be faithful to deliver and force yourself not to pray with a doubtful heart. HE WILL be faithful. HE WILL hear you. Even if His answer (which comes swiftly or in time) is not what you expect, God’s peace which flippin TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus for being obedient to His will. That’s pretty dang cool. You can’t buy that kind of thing.
So, be encouraged. Be persistent. Don’t lose heart. The Lord is near.
