I bless you today to
“Not be anxious about anything,
But in everything
By prayer and supplication
May you let your requests
Be made known to God.” (Philippians 4:6)
Not anxious about anything?
Worry about nothing?
It is part of your inheritance—
Part of what Christ bought for you:
There is no blessing,
In this world,
For the guarantee of
A trouble-free life,
But there is every possibility
Of a worry-free life.
Worry adds nothing but
That makes heavy the heart.
So, I join with God to invite you to
Of every sort.
May you turn every
“What if something bad happens…
Into a “What if something good happens….”
May you turn every anxious thought
Into a prayer
Because when your knees grow calloused,
Your heart does not.
