My favorite bible verse

Do you have a favorite bible verse? Philippians 4:6 is probably the first Bible verse I ever memorized. I was about 12 years old, and visiting the Philippines when my older cousin introduced me to the gospel. At that time this verse was used to remind me not to worry about school, friends, and every day problems of being a teenager. Today this verse helps me with work, family, and the every day struggle of living in this world. My problems and worries have changed as I get older but my reliance on the word of God and his promises have not changed.

I am at a good place right now.  Despite all the worry, and “what ifs” I am facing, I step back and look at everything the lord has given me.  My family is whole, my work life is at its highest, and I even got an unexpected raise (it was a Facing The Giants kind of moment.)

I pray so much when things are not going well and I need to have that same passion of praying when things are going great.  The thing is what do I pray for?

Today, I take the words of Pastor Rick Warren as a call to not just sit back and marvel at everything that the lord has given me.  I need to get up and use it to further his kingdom. Lets see where this all leads to… PJSLB
