It only takes a quick scan of the news headlines to get a small glimpse into the state of our world at present….
Then there’s the constant “conversation” across many of our facebook newsfeeds, with people expressing different views on what’s happening across the world and what should happen next.
Sometimes I find it challenging enough just dealing with what’s going on in my own world – my family, my friends, my colleagues….let alone the other side of the world!
It’s a great reminder that the Word of God can really speak into a situation at any time – no matter what it is:
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”– Philippians 4:6
Whether we’re talking about World War Three or cashflow for your business, whether there’s a health issue in the family or you’re just not feeling at the top of your game right now – God wants us to communicate with him! And we can do this through prayer – anytime and anywhere.
So take what’s on your heart today (even if you don’t know what to do with it!) and talk to God about it No matter if you’re on your lunch break (what’s a lunch break I hear you say!), during your quiet time or even at the gym! …. Let God meet you at that place…
Thought for the week…
“This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
I pray that where ever you are today, you get a refreshing of the joy that can come only from the Lord. That same Joy that is bigger than our circumstances, our dreams and our failures. So start with the choice and choose Joy today!
Be blessed with peace & joy as you walk in the Lord this week!
