with worries about my tomorrows.
The partly frozen lake reflected the condition of my heart,
Trying to expel the darkness and cold of a season past.
I asked my Father to bring peace to my heart.
“Help me know Your presence.”
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV)
