Philippians 4:6-7
6 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.  

I was just thinking to myself this evening about why do we worry.  Does it make us feel better, does it change the situation, does it brings us any relief???  The answer is NO...yet we continue to worry in vain.  Worry brings nothing constructive or positive to our lives.  It’s actually wasted energy.  My personal remedy for dealing with worry can be found in the bible in the verse listed above.  I absolutely love this verse because it gives a great step-by-step process for dealing with anxiousness and worry:

Step 1: Pray

Step 2: Make Your Petition

Step 3: Give Thanks

Step 4: Present Your Requests To God  

The scripture states that if you follow these steps the ultimate result will be a PEACE that surpasses all understanding.  I can personally witness that I have experienced this blessing and promise on numerous occasions in my life.    There have been times that although I was in a very rough place in life it was my prayer and praise that brought me into a ecstatic place of peace....the kind that defies all logic and/or understanding.   It was unexplainable!

Sometimes we move away from the very things that have worked for us in the past.  I know that this has worked in my own life and now I must put my prayer life back into practice.  I have committed myself to daily meditation on God’s word and to began instituting the step-by-step process once again.  

Please read the powerful wisdom by Jesus Christ about why we should not worry:

Matthew 6:25-34
25 "For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink ; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing ? 26 "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life ? 28 "And why are you worried about clothing ? Observe how the lilies of the field grow ; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 "But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith !

31 "Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will wear for clothing?' 32 "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things ; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 "So do not worry about tomorrow ; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  

And it is so. Amen.
