Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, of everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. ~ Phillipians 4:6-7 (Message)
How hard this act is--
of the mind,
and yet, how rewarding
in Christ's redemptive work.
This life isn't always going to be peachy.
Sometimes you do get thrown a cowpie.
It's what you do with that counts.
