Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by"
prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let
".your requests be made known to God
~ Phil-4:6 ~

Not a few Christians live in a state of unbroken
.anxiety. And others fret and fume terribly
To be perfectly at peace amid the hurly-burly of
.daily life is a secret worth knowing

?What is the use of worrying
It never made anybody strong; never helped anybody
to do God's will; never made a way of escape for
.anyone out of perplexity

Worry spoils lives which would otherwise be useful
and beautiful. Restlessness, anxiety, and care are
absolutely forbidden by our Lord, who said: "Take no
thought," that is, no anxious thought, "saying what
shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or wherewithal
shall we be clothed?" He does not mean that we are
not to take forethought and that our life is to be
without plan or method; but that we are not to worry
.about these things

People know you live in the realm of anxious care by
the lines on your face, the tones of your voice
the minor key in your life, and the lack of joy in
your spirit. Scale the heights of a life abandoned to
God, then you will look down on the clouds beneath
.your feet

It is always wrong to be fretting and worrying, questioning
and mistrusting. Can we gain anything by it? Are we not
unfit ourselves for action, and unhinge our minds for
?wise decision

.We are sinking by our struggles when we might float by faith

!Be still and know that your Lord is God
The Holy One of Israel can and will defend and deliver
His own. We should be sure that every word of His will
stand, though heaven and earth shall pass away. He
.deserves to be confided in

Return to your rest and lean your head upon the bosom of
!the Lord Jesus

!Worry about nothing
!But pray about every thing
