Philippians 4:4-9

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:6-7).

The Lord takes all of our worries and imperfections and makes them perfect. We must be meek, and have true dependence on God, in order to be truly content and to know peace. So often I try to be strong and take everything upon myself, but this is foolish because without God it cannot be done. Without His will in align with my own I will not be successful. I must trust. I must give Him everything. There is no other option. I will still have to try and do my best, but my best plus the Lord is actually unstoppable.
