Recently, these verses have been coming to mind a lot for me:
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 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.” Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV)
Many times I worry about one situation or another (or all of them at once), and I have to remind myself that the Lord is near and that I need to give the situation(s) over to Him. This verse convicts me of worry, but it also encourages me to know God is near and so is peace.
Do you have a verse that has encouraged you recently? Please share it here; it might encourage others, too. 🙂
Thanks so much for spending this week with me, exploring how we can help to make the CBA marketplace an even better place to work. Have a great weekend!
