Thankfulness #1

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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 4:6-7  
There's so much that we could be anxious about at this time. So many uncertainties, so many difficulties, so many things that just seem wrong.

But the Bible teaches us to be thankful instead.  So over the next few days/weeks, I'm aiming to do a series of posts about things I'm thankful for.

Today, I'm thankful for God, who's plans are perfect and who is always in control. For Jesus, who died and came to life so that, as imperfect as we are, we can know our perfect God.

I can't imagine how we would cope with the stresses of everyday life, let alone a situation like this, without being 100% certain that God is looking after us and everything will always go according to his plan. Even when it seems like life is falling down around our ears, we trust in Him.

Pray that we would keep trusting.
