He turned to me, "You know the Bible has solid advice to deal with that?" Yes, I know. I recited right then and there what I have heard a million times,
Do not be anxious...easier said than done. How many times have I prayed that prayer? How many times have I recited that truth? Why is it so hard to accept God's peace? Why doesn't my heart feel guarded in Christ Jesus at this moment? How many more times will I ask for peace, ask for the anxiety to disappear?
When I have to travel yet again....do not be anxious....God gave me this moment
When my heart aches for a baby....present my request to God....and accept His supernatural peace even when the timing doesn't make sense
When it is hard to see how we will ever have the resources to build our house or by our land....keep on praying
And when I forget, Lord keep reminding me of this truth. I don't have to be anxious, you have called me out of it, away from the pain and confusion and into your clarity and peace. I don't have to understand it because you guard my heart. Help me to rest on your truth, to claim it over my life and circumstances. "Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I" am (Psalm 61:2).
