A few weeks ago as we studied the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi, we learned that the antidote for worry was this:
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6
We’ve got a Huge weekend coming up with Fathers Day on Sunday and Relay for Life happening on Friday and Saturday. Instead of worrying about how everything is going to come together… :-) I’ve told God what we need…and I thought maybe you could join in as I thank God for all he’s done in just the last few weeks:
Thank you God:
-For providing EACH week, everything we need…for everything we do.
-For the many times Michele and I can say “I don’t know” because we have great leaders who are making amazing things happen each week.
-For all the people who sweat and bleed (no exaggeration) :-) to put together a church at Frank Theaters.
-For our great actionkidz crew, who somehow manage to turn a small theater into an exciting place where God’s word comes alive for our children!!
-For the MANY people who have signed up to cook, and walk, and serve those who have cancer in our region at Relay.
-For sound and video equipment…and an ugly truck…and the people who know how to keep both working!
-For people who are brave enough to try out actionchurch because they saw a $2 lawn sign beside the road…we’ve always dreamed of billboards…thank you that $2 signs work instead.
-For the lady I met this weekend who was a graduate from Bridge of Hope…for great partners in serving others like Bridge of Hope!
-For medical miracles in the lives of people we love!
-For lives changed and prayers answered…every day.
-For leading us as a church,-to a place we could grow and have an even larger imprint on York County!
I could go on. And I think MAYBE that was Paul’s “tricky” solution, once you begin to think about all of the amazing things God has done…it’s sort of distracting from the whole worrying thing.
What can you add to the list from your life?
