Default Do not worry about anything

Philippians 4:4-7

"Do not worry about anything," writes Paul in his letter to the church at Philippi. Really, Paul? Not anything? But there is so much to worry about! Will I do well on this exam? Do I have enough money? Is my health OK? Can I keep my family safe?

Letting go of anxiety is easier said than done. This may be especially true in the pre-Christmas season, when the world ramps up its expectations for what our holidays should look like. Even churches can contribute to these high expectations, with Advent craft fairs and well-scripted candlelight services and nativity pageants. Of course, many of our worries reach far deeper than the stresses of the season. But Paul encourages us to give over even our most closely-held fears to God. Imprisoned and facing the possibility of death, Paul still exhorts the church at Philippi--and now us--to live with joy, gentleness, gratitude and peace, made possible only by handing over all our worries to God in prayer.

Philippians 4:4-7 (NRSV)

4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
5 Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.
6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy
AA gives us an opportunity to recreate ourselves, with God's help, one day at a time. --Rufus K.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
