Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
My mother-in-law has this fabulous saying: “Worry is nothing more than interest paid on trouble before it becomes due.”
Anxious about the stock market? Pray, give thanks and get peace.
Anxious about your job? Pray, give thanks and get peace.
Anxious about your kids, your mortgage, your hairline, your car or maybe even your mother-in-law? Pray, give thanks and get peace.
