Worries into Prayers

Things that bother us and weigh on us can so easily mess-up our days and throw us off track!

  Listen to these words from Philippians 4 in The Message: Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.

    Good morning Patti. I wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you Wednesday. You are such a joy to be around.

    I also wanted to comment on this post.

    You bring out a great point that worries should lead us to prayer. I have to say that I am not the best at this. I have so many worries sometimes that I just get so flustered. I continually have to remind myself to pray over things and “let go and let God,” so to speak. I am also very thankful that God understands our human nature and is still merciful and gracious.

    Even though in our minds, we know all the truth’s of His word, we still hold on to the things of this world.

    It’s like a child who wants the candy out of the jar, but is afraid to let go of the handful to take one piece at a time. Or even still, the wife that is in an abusive marriage. To leave the things we are used to is to leave our comfort zone. Even if we know it’s unhealthy or harmful, we at least know what to expect.

    I think that we don’t know how to trust. To fully trust anyone in this day is unheard of, so we’ve never been taught how to do so, even with God. Oh the freedom and blessings we would enjoy if only we could trust the Lord more.

    But as I said earlier, I am thankful he is a loving, forgiving, gracious and merciful God. He knew our shortcomings and weaknesses, and still loved us enough to die for us. What an awesome God we serve!

    Love and blessings to you. Please keep in touch.
