Don’t fret! Philippians 4:6-7

May 1, 2010

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (THE MESSAGE)
  • Next time you catch yourself slipping back into self concern, rehashing that same old issue that’s got you tied-up into knots, pause for just a moment an remember this verse. Begin to pray. Pray-out your concerns. Pray for others. Pray for your family and congregation. As you take your eyes off yourself, Christ will indeed become your center.
