Are ya Anxious??

I have an upcoming appointment....sometimes appointments are fun, like going to the dentist for a new toothbrush, or getting a haircut...not this appointment. Lately, I've been in prayer about a friend whom has been hard to love. She has asked to sit down with me and talk about our friendship...GULP. I marked the day on the calendar and get a sinking adrenaline burst everytime I sit down at my desk and see it. We've all had circumstances that make us nervous and anxious, but I love what this verse remind us:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Phillipians 4:6

Whatever you may be anxious about this week, remember that our Heavenly Father wants to give us peace. Cast your anxieties on Him. He wants to hear your request.

Have a GREAT week, friends!

Great idea Ariel! And I think Anxiety is a great topic to start with :). I do have one quick prayer request - Kent is taking a Masters class this fall, so I'd ask for prayers for patience and ease in adjusting to our new schedules for this. And for me being soooo jealous :).

You got it, Bethy! Congrats to Kent on pursuing his education even more...He will be even more of a super-smarty pants ;) Let him know that I discovered that the faceplate of our phone can shatter when you drop it on the brick patio of Cheesecake Factory... hee hee
