- You work tirelessly, but never get told, “Thank you.”
- You take vacation days to volunteer but never feel valued.
- You put in overtime without being paid, but feel like no one notices.
- You believe that your reward is awaiting you in heaven, but you could really use some encouragement now.
States across the country are revising their child pornography laws to adjust the punishments for what has become known as “sexting” — distributing sexual images via cell phone.
Many states have relaxed the charge, previously considered a felony, for minors because minors are making up an increasing percentage of the people charged with sexting. In many states, it is now considered a misdemeanor for minors.
This is a huge problem among teens today.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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 4:6-7
I read theses verses a little while ago. Here’s what struck me…
The command given in the first few words is made possible by the following commands.
In other words, we’re told to not be anxious, and then we’re told how to make that a practice in our every day lives.
We pray, God gives the peace, and we stay obedient to the command to not be anxious.
God not only commands, He equips also.
Whatever is on your mind right now,
Don’t be anxious, be in prayer!
