* Our Theme *

“Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request me mad known unto God.” Philippians 4:7

I cannot remember but I think that I mentioned in a previous blog…

This Verse is Britt and my theme verse!!!

I cannot tell you how many times I quote this verse over and over again in my head. I often find myself being anxious and the Lord continually reminds me “BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING”. Not only am I to be anxious for nothing but I must approach all things with PRAYER and THANKSGIVING! We often leave out the thanksgiving part, especially then the outcome of our prayer is not what we were “wanting”.

I can tell you though….I am learning.

I would say that:

* Finances *
* Jobs *
* Housing *
* Car *

These four things are on the top of my/our worry list. I have GOT to give these up though! How can I worry about what I do not know or control? I just have to get on my face before God and cry out to Him. Asking Him to provide and thanking Him in advance for his provision.

Psalm 37:25
“I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken Or his descendants begging bread.”


“Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God.” Jim Elliot

Also..."Let not our longing slay our appetite for living" (Jim Elliot). I thought of that one the other day while we were talking.

This was a great reminder, Lauren. I'm so excited to see how God provides for all your needs! Pray for you...
