Philippians 4:6...


It's really quite simple, isn't it?
And yet, even in this, I need God's help to do it.
When my thoughts become anxious and worried, 
graciously God's Spirit reminds me what to do...
"talk to Me about everything,
thank Me for what I've already done".
When I do, peace comes to my mind and heart.

still following,

    1. God has been speaking to me to pray about some of the things I used to pray about that I had let drop by the wayside. Nothing is too small or too big to pray about!

    1. Me, too! God has been reminding me to pray about some things that I used to pray about but have let drop away. Nothing is too big or too small to pray about!

  5. Beautiful mobile. There are times I can judge myself and say I'm not spending time with Him, but truth is while I could spend more time in prayer with Him I do feel as though I'm always talking to Him. He is just such a delight to always have near. Such comfort. He does bring peace and comfort to your heart! :)
    Happy Saturday! Oh..I added a page to my blog that focuses on my word for 2014. I so love that we have the same word and look forward to seeing how God uses this word in our lives this year.

  7. oh yes, Elizabeth ... and to thank Him, with some kind of expectancy, for what He's going to do ... that's the hardest prayer of all.

    But oh, how He's proven Himself over and over. So trustworthy, so faithful He is ...

  8. I LOVE your prayer mobile - I think me and my girls need to make a similar one! We have a song of this verse and it's running through my head right now : ) Have you heard of Seeds Family Worship? It's Bible verses set to songs and my girls (and I) have learned so many verses this way. Each cd comes with 2 copies - 1 to keep and 1 to give away. Your grandkids might love them!

    1. Jill, what a fun project to do with your girlies. You could made the birds with more colorful card stock and scrapbooking paper for the wings.

  21. Isn't it totally awesome that God wants us to tell Him everything? When He asks, "How are you doing today" - He means it! Wishing you sweet blessing this week! Wrapped in warm blankets of course! LOL
