Guarded by God

“… Make your requests known to God in prayers and petition with thanksgiving.

Then the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your thoughts and your hearts in Christ Jesus.”                                                        Philippians 4:6-7

The peace of God

is attached to giving thanks.

We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.

With the habit of constant prayer,

comes more and more

contact with the gift of peace.

Anxious thoughts arise;

that is only human…

and who and what we are…

Guarded by God, we are then led

to do more

than we have ever thought possible.
