What the bible says about worrying

64913344_2756283861113302_1993445925829214208_n.jpg

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6

My absolute favorite verse in the bible.  From 6th grade worrying about friends, 8th grade worrying about high school, and now being an adults worrying about my family; this verse speaks to whatever stage you are in your life.

Some translations use WORRY while others use ANXIOUS.  The thing is; arent the two one and the same.  Worry leads to you being anxious and vice versa.  In my life, i have used this verse in the literal sense.  I would plead (petition) my case and in doing so at a young age, it has shapped the way i pray to God.  My prayers are personal and intimate.  PJSLB

Trust Me…Listen to Bobby McFerrin and DONT WORRY BE HAPPY!!!.

Lauren Daigle – Billboard Performance and Review

For the record, everyone here at NeedTheSpirit has been a fan of Lauren Daigle since day one.  From her album – Look Up Child to the inspiration of How Can It Be, Lauren has always been a go to when our spirits need “filling up”

On May 1, 2019 something amazing happened.  With just under eight million people watching their TV’s we see Lauren standing on top of a small platform, ready to perform her hit You Say.  What happens next will take your breath away.

 

It sends shivers down my spine to know that millons of people around the world are listening to this song.  I am not exargerating when i say this.  Despite the Billboard Awards having performances from mega superstarts such as The Jonas Brother and Mariah Carey, it was Luaren’s performance that was the most “Shazamed” act of the night.

What an inspiring night that will be in the minds and hearts of millions of people for years to come.  God Bless PJSLB

Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys

 

My walk with Christ has been one big soundtrack.  I can hear a song and immediately go back to a time when i head this song.  Songs that remind of of the power of God (God’s Not Dead – Newsboys) to the inspiration that i need at that particuar moment (Lauren Daigle.)

Lately, my “go to song” has been Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys.  According to his Wiki page, Tauren has been in the music industry for more than 15 years.  The song i am currently in love with Hills and Valleys peaked at number 3 in the charts in 2017.  The song speaks to me with where i am at in my walk with Christ.  I  have been through the highs and the lows of life and i recognize that in it all, Jesus has been with me the whole time.  Such a beautiful song that is beautifully wrttien and speaks to the heart.  I hope you enjoy.  God Bless –  PJSLB.

 

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days

And I’ve prayed prayers to Heaven
From my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God, You give and take away

No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You, I hope again
No matter what I know
I’m safe inside Your hands

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

On the mountains, I will bow my life, yeah
In the valley, I will lift my eyes, yeah

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone (I’m not alone)

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone (God of the valleys)

And I will choose to say
Blessed be Your Name
And I am not alone
