Philippians 4:6-7

...do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


When I was a little girl, I remember learning to turn my worries into prayers and leaving them at the feet of Jesus. That lesson has stayed with me my whole life, and I regularly go back to that practice. Our world and the craziness of the times in which we live can cause anyone to have anxiety, but that’s where our faith, trust, and prayers come into play. Instead of allowing the worries of this world to drain us of our energy, we hand them over to God. We give Him our concerns and our worries through our prayers, and we trust Him to work in ways that only He can. We are not God, but He is, and He can do more than we could ever imagine. So with thankful hearts for what He has already done, we hand over our worries and give Him opportunities to work in our lives for His glory.
