Philippians 4:6 
“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God”

Another translation says “Let no anxiety about anything distract you! Rather translate moments into prayerful worship, and soak your requests in gratitude before God!”

I used to “fret” a lot, overthinking most things. The more I pondered this verse, the more I realized how much satan was taking from me. No anxiety about ANYTHING! Instead, when I feel that urge to fret, I’m learning to start worshipping.
God knows my requests. They are no surprise to him. He has them covered! No fretting needed! Instead, I can take a deep breath, start praising and end up with a spirit of life and Godliness! Now that is a whole lot better than ending up how I used to.

One of the things that makes me look at my Lord with such gratitude is that He wants to know my requests. He wants to fellowship with me. The more I talk with Him, praise Him and rest in His presence, the more I do not even have a reason to fret.

Fretting - satan’s trick to get us to look at circumstances instead of God. I’m not falling for it anymore!

Be blessed,
