SSMT 2017: Verse 12!

img_2489-pngHey Siestas!

I’m Kimberly, the Prayer Chaplain for Living Proof Ministries! I pray you are all having MUCH success with your memorization!

I have chosen to memorize my life verse in a different version:

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praise shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:6-7 MSG

God has used this verse in my life to teach me to pray, and not to worry. Worry does NOTHING for the glory of God! Worry just makes us sick and tired…doesn’t bring the change we are hoping for, and will affect our health in a negative way. If we continue in worry, I’ve noticed, it makes things harder and more intense. It’s an energy drainer and joy stealer.

When life happens, and it does, don’t worry! PRAY. Let our praises and petitions shape our worries into prayers. Pray with thanksgiving, letting God have our concerns in exchange for His peace.  Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle us down, as Christ displaces worry at the center of our lives.

As I add this version of this verse into my memory bank, it’s clear in the actions for the ending reward! I challenge you to try it, the next time worry pops it’s head up in your sweet life!

Blessings in abundance to you all!
