Day 84: Rejoice in the Lord

Passage: Philippians 4:2-9
Key verse
: “Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.” v6

The older I get the more I realise that none of us are immune from suffering or disappointments.   Our Heavenly Father knows that we live in a fallen world and longs for us to know His peace which will give us His understanding, not ours.  We need this so much when we face particularly hard times.

Having battled cancer three times and endured a bone marrow transplant the words of verses 6 and 7 are of particular comfort to me.  When you step onto the roller coaster ride of illness prayer is the key element to having a positive mindset.  Isn’t it amazing to know that our Heavenly Father will guard our hearts and our minds through Christ.

Do not be anxious about anything!

“Joy is not the absence of suffering, it is the presence of God” Robert Schuller
