Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

What is troubling you? Things in life happen and at times it is hard to not be overwhelmed to the point you don't think you can function anymore. Satan is the master of keeping people down in the dumps, troubled, despairing, in anguish, and fearful. You have to decide you are not going to go there. No matter what is going on around you choose to look up.

Be the kind of person that can walk with a spring in your step just because you know how much Jesus loves you. Beat Satan at his game. When he attempts to get you rattled by throwing all sorts of things your way stand strong. Bad medical diagnosis? Sick child? Aging parents? Horrible job? Betrayal by a friend? Whatever it is don't allow things to rob you of your joy in Jesus.

Life here on Earth is so temporary although at times you may feel it is forever. Live as if each day is the day Jesus may call you home. Talk to him as you would a friend. Cry out to him. Try to lay your burdens down and let Him carry them. Tall order but He can set you free.

PRAYER: At times Father I feel like I just can't go on. I know the enemy loves this and I don't want to let him be happy over my pain. Give me the strength to press on no matter what is going on around me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
