Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Just think of having His wonderful peace
guarding one’s heart and
one’s thoughts all day long.
But it is only on condition
that we fulfil the sixth verse,
“In nothing be anxious,”–
this is a distinct command,
if we fail to fulfil it,
we shall not get the blessing.
Sorrow even is anxiety,
and should be laid upon our blessed Lord.
Then in prayer and supplication
we must not forget
thanksgiving is also distinctly commanded;
we must praise God for His dealings with us,
even though we cannot make them out at times.
Pray God to make you cease
from anxiety about yourself and your plans;
just be willing to do the work
our dear Father gives you at the time.
~~John Kenneth Mackenzie
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Cease from anxiety . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
