Do not be anxious about anything...





Last night I wasn't sleeping well due to a head cold and stuffy nose.  I was sleeping in 15 minute increments for a good part of it and during the awake times I'd find myself thinking about random things and worrying about the most random things. Like, things in the universe I have zero control over.
 
So random and so dumb that even at the time I was asking myself why in the world I was worrying about that and reminding myself that come 6:30 am (or whenever) this morning, that I wouldn't care or even think about it... so why was I getting so anxious?
 
Sure enough, it's 6:30 am, I have coffee and... for the life of me I can't even remember what I was worried about last night.  I remember telling myself it was ridiculous... but I can't remember what it was!
 
 
 
(I do have things to worry about... real things... but I'm talking about how everything looks ominous and horrible at 3:am and how easy it is to overthink things in the dark of night.)

Philippians 4:6-7 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.
