July 4

Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad.
Proverbs 12:25
Many of us struggle with anxiety. There are a number of stressers in our lives that may trigger us to be quick to anger. I am guilty of this and find I waste many hours in a day worrying over matters that upset me instead of letting go. Today my plan is to try to relax and take life as it comes. Remember, the lord never gives us anymore than we can handle. So, today when you feel yourself becoming upset over lifes stressers take a minute to thank God. Thank God for:
  • the house you have to clean because it means you have a home
  • the laundry you have to get washed because this means you have clothes to wear
  • the trip to the grocery store because it means you will be able to eat
  • Work because it means you have a job
  • Your Screaming children because you have been blessed with a gift of another life
  • ??????????? (Fill in the blank, What is your stresser. Thank God)

Today I pray for all of you. I pray you find peace. I pray you are able to relax and breath. Have a Happy 4th. God Bless
