“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything” (Philippians 4:6). God offers you and me the possibility of a worry-free life.

Worry is also irreverent; it’s distrusting God…an “unconscious blasphemy.” The Apostle Paul urges us to “be anxious for nothing.” How? Our part includes prayer and gratitude.

And he offers his peace to you to guard your heart. Do your part, and God will do his.
