Tell Me All About It

"Let your reasonableness b ex own to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let our requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:5-7

Other translation focal verses: Do not worry about anything. But pray and ask God for everything you need. And when you pray, always give thanks. And God's peace will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. The peace that God gives is so great that we cannot understand it. - Philippians 4:6-7

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world." - John 16:33

"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." - Ephesians 2:4-7

Other translation focal verse: [God] raised us up with Christ and gave us a seat with him in the heavens. He did this for those of us who are in Christ Jesus. - Ephesians 2:6

Dear God, 

It is a tough time right now. And it seems like it is only getting tougher by the day. Everything I had said would happen if Trump got elected is happening. Our country is being ripped to shreds and people are losing the essential human rights that we all fought so hard to get. Wrap me with Your love. Soothe me with Your peace and love. We need You so much more now than ever before. 

Thank You.

In Jesus' Name, 

Amen
