Are you Anxious Pt. 2

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

The Lord our Savior offers peace!!!!  Through Jesus all is attainable.  Reading the bible, we can see that through Jesus, anything is possible.  The same thought process can be used in terms or peace and understanding in terms of our emotions.

When we have problems we rationalize a solution.    We think of ways to “get out of the situaion”.  By offereing up our  concerns to Jesus, we leave it up to him.  How great is it to know that we can offer up our concerns to our Savior, and he will put them to ease.  How many nights have you spent tossing and turning because of a problem? Money, Relationships, Children, Work, School, etc. etc.  We have all had those kinds of nights.  In fact, I had one just last week.  I can vividly remember dropping on my knees and yelling our the lords name.  I offered up the problem to him and told him, I leave it all up to you.  TRUST IN THE DECISIONS THE LORD MAKES!!!  We trust him in good time, we must learn to trust him in bad times!!!

Now mind you, that the solution Jesus has, may not be what you want.  It may be the total opposite.  We must trust that the decisions the Lord has made is with our best interest in hand.  Like the verse says; …the peace of God…transcends all understanding…

Glory to the one who deserves all praises…JESUS!!!

Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version, ©2010)

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.

Biting your tongue

“When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.”

Proverbs 10:19 ESV

Lord, I pray that tonite will be the last time I speak without thinking. I said things that I absolutely do not feel. My earthly emotions got the better of me tonite. I am better than that…I thank you for all that is given to me.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Are you anxious? Pt.1

With all the different bible versions out there, a meaning of a verse can sometimes be lost. I found this website where you can type in a bible verse and it will list All the bible translations for the specific verse. Today I choose Philippians 4:6.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Like they say; sometimes just talking to someone makes all the difference. The fact that you are talking to the most high just makes it better. No problem is too small. Jesus is concerned about all aspects of our life. If it concerns us, it concerns him.

Tomorrow we dwell on what happens when you offer your concerns to Jesus.

Walking on Water

Starting this blog, I am remind of the story of Jesus Walking on Water. For those of you who are not familiar with this story you can find it Here.

This story relates to this blog in that Peter walks on water towards Jesus with good intentions. It is only when he is already in the water that he begins to “think twice” about his decision and he starts to sink.

I am starting this blog out of faith as well.  I have good intentions.  I need to be aware that Jesus is out there in the “open water” reaching out his hand to us.

Let The Journey Begin.

Why be an undercover Christian? Live life!
