Philippians 4:6-7
Let no anxiety about anything distract you!  Rather translate moments into prayerful worship, and soak your requests in gratitude.  
And in this place of worship and gratitude you will witness how the peace of God within you echoes the awareness of your oneness in Christ Jesus beyond the reach of any thought that could possibly unsettle you...

"DAD, what should I do!?"
That's a line I've asked my dad many times.  When something comes up and I'm not sure what to do, I usually call him and ask that question.
I've been looking to sell my car, and was looking for the car I want (a 2011 black Honda Civic Coupe).  I had been calling my dad asking him what he thought, sending him cars, trying to figure out a way to get it done!  He called me with a car that looked pretty good.  I had to decide quick before it was sold.  It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but it looked like it was nicer than what I have now.
I wasn't sure what to do so I asked my dad what he thought.  He answered the same way he always does, "Do you have a peace about it?"
His go to advice is to follow the peace.  He's been giving me that advice for years now.  I didn't have a peace, and didn't get the car (but that's a devotional for another day- don't settle for less than God's BEST).
Follow the peace.  Follow the peace.  Follow the peace.
Do you have a peace about moving, finding a new job, dating that person, or whatever it is you are thinking about?  Sometimes in the natural it seems like whatever it might be is a GREAT idea, but if you do not have a peace about it, don't do it.   Follow the peace of God!  He has a great plan and His peace is a way that He will lead you.  Trust Him even if it doesn't look like a good idea in the natural.
He will take care of all of your needs according to His riches in glory, He will work everything out for your good.
