leap of faith

the other night stephen and i read our marriage devotional like always before bed and we came to realize something that's really lacking in both go us. fear and worry. the devotional reminded of us of the very well known verse:

philippians 4:6 "do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

as we read this we both knew exactly what God is telling us. there has been a few issues that are causing us to worry. some about our jobs, health and fineness but all in all..worrying is not the answer. it's hard not to worry about the future sometimes but when you realize how damaging worrying really is, and you remember that our heavenly father wants us to give it to Him...it seems so simple. but it's still so hard to do. stephen and i are making huge efforts to pray more when we are in a worry state of mind and sharpen each other to be closer to Him. he has a doctors appointment today because he's been experiencing some symptoms so we're all praying it will go okay and that it's not as bad as we think. i've also been battling a crazy cough and sore throat and still have to come into work ( such a bummer ) so we're both sick together. but anyways, kind of a not so good post...but the point is...whatever you're worried about...give it to God. He makes our burdens light and when we come to Him, he gives us such a warm peace we can't get anywhere else. so all in all...it's about taking a leap of faith and trusting our God to take care of us.

  1. I agree that worrying can be so damaging to a relationship. I am trying to be less worrisome as well.
