The Lord Be With You Today!
Do not be anxious about anything,
(Today, even in the midst of trials and hardships,
even in the middle of brokenness and need,
the Lord reminds us not to be anxious or fearful
about any of the circumstances surrounding us.)
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
(Rather than spending time and energy being anxious,
as we pray and bring our specific requests to the Lord,
by so doing, we are inviting Him to take control of our lives
and the situations in our lives over which we have no control.)
(Being careful to give God thanks is vital
because practicing a habit of expressing our gratitude
is a constant reminder to us of Who our mighty God is
and of the One to Whom we make our requests known
and the One from Whom we receive
both answers to prayers and our many blessings.
May this time of Thanks-Giving be a reminder to us
to develop the habit of praise and to practice giving the Lord thanks
for His immeasurable and countless blessings!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
