Today is a beautiful day. Sunny and warm. I sent the boys outside to play right after breakfast and will send them outside again after naps. No reason to be indoors when the weather is this nice.
I mentioned before that I am reading the Grace for the Moment Daily Bible with Devotional writing by Max Lucado. Every thing he writes seems to speak to me....and some days even more than others. I want to share the message he wrote for April 23rd. It is an excerpt from his book "Come Thirsty". I hope you find grace in this....
Want to worry less? Then pray more.
Rather than look forward in fear, look upward in faith. This command surpirses no one. Regarding prayer, the Bible never blushes, Jesus taught people that "they should always pray and never lose hope" (Luke 18:1). Paul told believers, "Continue praying, keeping alert, and always thanking God" (Colossians 4:2). James declared, "Anyone who is having trouble should pray" (James 5:13).
Rather than worry about everything, "pray about everything." Everything? Diaper changes and dates? Business meetings and broken bathtubs? Procrastinations and prognostications?
Pray about Everything.
