Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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 your minds in Christ Jesus.
True rest is found in relationship with God. We can physically do everything right, but still feel uneasy and "off" in our heart. It is so easy for me to charge ahead into my day, making my own decisions, dealing with feelings and reactions as they come up. I know it is far better for me to stop and pray, to remember the Holy Spirit, living in me. God will give me direction, peace and rest.
Lord, may your words this morning, from Paul's letter to the Philippians, guide me today. May I be reminded to come to you, to listen for your guidance, and to experience your true peace and rest. Amen
