HELLO FRIENDS: 04.16.15 – Philippians 4:6-7

Hello Friends,

“Do not worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.  His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”  (Phil. 4:6-7 NLT)

We have a God who invites us to talk about things, to make our requests known to Him.  He’s not a passive, uninterested God but rather just the opposite: He’s actively inviting us to come to Him and talk with Him.  By going to God with our concerns, we continually keep company with him in the everyday moments of our lives.

We all have different needs but the same God who is waiting for us to come to Him.  We just have to show up and He does the heavy lifting.

As God’s beloved, we are accepted and loved and welcomed into a life with Him.  We offer our little prayers and God injects His grace and takes those prayers and gives us miraculous peace that far exceeds our understanding.

Whatever you are walking through this week, God is there and you can give it to Him.  Tell him what you need, talk things over.  Stay with Him in it until you experience His peace and understanding, as He promised.  When we keep company with God we learn to live free and light and to experience His presence.

God loves you.
He likes you.
He smiles when he sees you.
He’s proud of you.
He wants to hear from you.
He is with you right in the center of your life and circumstances.

Many Blessings,
Kristin
