Stress-free Living

Be anxious for nothing. Period. (Well, sort of. There is more to the verse, but the instruction to cease from anxiety is clear. That is my point.)

Phil.4:6. It's in the Bible.

I love that verse. It always brings freedom to me. When I read those words, a big sigh emanates from my inner being.

I don't have to worry. In fact, I am not supposed to worry. Whew. I personally like that. However, I do need reminding from time to time - that's where reading the same verse over and over again through the years gains merit.

Don't fret. Period. There is no place for stressing out in the kingdom of God. It doesn't reflect well on His promised care. So great is His promise to us, so faithful His hand of protection, and so abundant His provision, that we have no need for concern, no excuse for worry.

I like that.

I like that too. Thanks for the great reminder, it couldn't have come at a more perfect time.

I don't know if you remember me, but I'm Liz Nordberg's new sister-in-law and I linked to your blog through her's.

I love your thoughts on worry! I can always use a good reminder of the freedom a 'be-anxious-for-nothing' life leaves!
