Peace in Jesus

A friend asked me to pray for her today.  Her request reminded me of this beautiful verse:

“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” ~Philipians 4:6-7

Our anxieties may be about health (our own or others), children, marriage, or relationships.  We are human.  We worry about things; however, we do not have to worry.  The Lord will be with us.  He will give us Peace.  There is Hope in every worry:  The nurse that helps you recover;  Your child’s smile after a monkey bar pass; When your spouse lets you have the last cupcake; The call from your long-lost sibling.  You’ll find Peace in Jesus.  Look to Him.
