Don't Fret

 "Don't fret or worry.
Instead of worrying, pray.
Let petitions and praises
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)

Lord, Help me not to dwell on past regrets or to dread future challenges, but to rest in Your love, confident in Your eternal care.

I needed to read this today. I have some worries on my heart. And need to turn those into prayers.
