Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV)

Everyone is worried about something. No matter who you are or what phase you are in your life, there is going to be something that you worry about. Every day we are bombarded with choices that we have to make. Big or small, they can still weigh down on us. In a world full of decisions, how are we supposed to know what is the right one for us? How do we stop worrying and remember that God has everything in control? When we put our decisions in His hands, He will make the path straight. The only way to defeat worry is to replace it with a trust in God. Trusting that your decisions will be the right ones will only come if you make them prayerfully.

Prayer: Lord, help us to trust you with all of our hearts. I pray against stress and anxiety today. In Jesus name, amen.

“The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body” (Proverbs 18:8, English Standard Version). Everyone probably has a favorite food—that special something we allow ourselves as a treat. I have two: chocolate and ice cream. Combine them together and yum!…

I love the sunshine!  I love spring, and I love summer seasons.  If it could be spring and summer year round, I would be content.  At least I think I would. I complained as I sat looking at the rain come down so forcefully one day while at work.  It…

“I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry” (Psalm 40:1). My prayer list currently has some very serious needs on it. Several friends face extremely difficult situations, and we are praying daily for their miracle. We feel peace, even when we don’t yet…
