Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
A treasure we have in this verse today, filled with promises galore,
And reading the list of things God does, what could we ask more?
He calms us through prayer and gives peace so sublime,
And the beautiful thing is that He does it all the time.
In and by Him we are guarded day by day, and oh what peace that brings,
Our lives are filled with such joy, and because of Him our heart sings.(RP)
During the night I saw the light blinking on the phone and soon got the message that Jim, Margie's brother-in-law was taken to E.R. last night (his request). This morning his wife, Barb says they are concerned not only for the heart but also kidney issues. We are praying much about it. Our other friend Everett is also in the hospital and they have the same concerns for him. The news is disappointing because just yesterday Jim has spoken by phone, to the pastor of the church they attend and was intending to worship with them today. How things can change. I preach this morning at Grace Baptist Church, Bellingham and am looking forward to this. Trust YOUR day goes well. Thanks for praying.
