There are many things to fear in our society. Women and children are killed in their homes. Mergers and company closures make us wonder if our job will be there tomorrow. Maybe that sickness that won’t go away is CANCER or AIDS.
There is much to fear, indeed, but God tells us in the Bible, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God will be with you.”
We can’t stop the sources of fears, but we can let God give us His peace in the midst of them.

Sitting in the waiting room while a loved one is undergoing surgery is a most trying experience. It tends to change our perspective on life. Little else seems all that important. It doesn”t matter if laundry is washed or bills are paid. In due circumstances, priorities change.
Too often the little things begin to look important: the house needs painting, there ‘s trouble at the office, how can we be six places at once? Sometimes it takes a time of crisis to slow us down and help us to see what’s important – such things as good health, loved ones and the relationship we have with our Heavenly Father.

Today, noise is part of daily life. In order to think we must tune out the unnecessary noises that are part of each day …a clanging fire engine roars down the street … an impatient motorist honks his horn … dogs bark, birds chip, grill doors bang, children play. We learn to tune out many of these sounds.
But sometimes we tune out God. We need to listen to God as He speaks to our hearts through His Word. That can be done best when we are quiet … at rest. We worship Him in prayer, praise and thanksgiving.
Be still and know that He is your God.

How do you feel about the phrase in Bob Marley’s song, “Every little thing is gonna be alright?” If you are a Christian, you Do know that everything is going to be all right Underneath you are the “everlasting arms.”
But Christians are tempted as much as anyone to despair over the way things is going in their lives and in the world. They too, wonder about the way out of debt or illness or some other tragedy.That’s when we need to remember that the love of Christ is higher, and wider, and deeper than any trouble or tragedy. If we can put these into His loving hands, everything WILL be all right.
