Everything is still a mess right now, huh?
The government is on shut down.
So many are uncertain in their jobs.
It's more than enough to keep a girl up late at night.
When I'm tempted to worry - and I'm tempted to worry a lot - I have to ground myself with the word of God.
This month's verse is Philippians 4:11-13
Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Lord, help me to remember to be content whatever my circumstances and to rely on Your strength, not my own.
