When things are going great there is often no urgency to go to the Lord in prayer but oh when things go haywire, off one trots to the prayer room. The prayer room should always be a first place in good or bad times.
So the verses for today speak of not being anxious in anything. Does that mean bad medical diagnosis? House deal falls through? Loss of your job? Death in the family? Water pipes burst and flood your home? Prodigal children? The recent terrible floods in Baton Rouge? Yes it does mean everything. Just how do you do that when your world is turned upside down? Practice now in the little things so if you ever have a big thing you would have 'exercised' those faith muscles so to speak.
Whatever you are facing right now trust God to see you through.
PRAYER: I confess I like it when there are no major hurdles in my life but yet I know use all things to the good in our lives. Problems are not the end but often the beginning. Help me learn to stay at peace through trials and turmoil. In Jesus' name. Amen.
