Thursday – March 25th – Philippians 4:6   --- 
4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for Thursday:

    Good Thursday to you!  Of course, Thursday means the week is drawing to a conclusion. My prayer is that your week has been good. In the shadow of the SunRise steeple this week we are halfway through juggling the spring breaks of three different school districts over fourteen days. For our youngest daughter she has one son in a district on spring break this week and another son in our preschool that is on break next week. Not sure why that is important for you all to know but it reminds me that plans are never simple or concise. Life is filled with daily, hourly, or even minute by minute adjustments. When all around us is in constant flux it is great to know we serve a God who is unchanging in nature, unconditional love, and grace.

    I guess that is a great segue to today’s pick verse from Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Today is another of Paul’s great quotes from this chapter and a verse worth committing to memory and to life application. Paul instructs all believers that we are to be anxious about nothing, in other words – do not spend time, energy, or effort worrying about things we cannot control. To worry is to doubt God’s ability to be in charge of all things around us. We are instead instructed to share our needs with God through a time of prayer. While we haven’t gotten to Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, we will learn that prayer is to be a constant form of conversation with God. If our minds are connected to God, we have little time left to worry. Our prayer times are to include thanking God for past blessings and to give thanks because we trust God will answer our current requests in a way that brings glory to God’s name and increases the faith of others. Today would be a great day to be worry free!
