“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer & supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” – Phil 4:6
I read this scripture in a rush this morning, yet it reminded me of a song we used to sing at school:
“I’ve got the peace that passes understanding down in my heart (Where?), down in my heart.”
I’ve been worrying and overthinking so much about things I’ve prayed about yet expect God to believe that I have faith in him.
How does that even work?
I mean if I am praying and giving all of what is in my heart to him then why not REALLY give it all to him? Instead, after praying I should have faith that it shall come to pass and thank him for already answering my heart’s wishes. I need to keep reminding myself that God has a track record of coming through for me, but I just need to be patient.
I know how hard it is in the ‘waiting period’ but I think being honest to God through prayer and letting him know makes it easier then pretending we not anxious, an honest and transparent relationship with God will serve you well in the long run (never forget that).
A good friend of mine said to me years ago, ‘learn to foster an attitude of gratitude.’ The more things you find you are grateful for and praise God for the better your outlook on life as you constantly become aware of the beautiful blessings, we have all been given, practice on praising while you are waiting.
