I can't take credit for this..it was last night's sermon but I just read a bulletin that was talking about reconnecting with God and getting re-aligned with Him and His heart. I have and am struggling with a whole lot of STRESS and anxiety right now so maybe this bulletin is only for me but I trust it is for others as well! I will be posting this as a blog also to get it out there.
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---------------------------
Last night's sermon at my church was talking bout letting God's peace to replace anxiety! We read out of Proverbs 24:30-34 the story of the ruined garden and how anxiety can and will rob us of our peace! Right in Luke 28 --the parable of the sower it says " CHOKED BY LIFE'S WORRIES". God's desire for ALL OF US is to be a people filled with His peace..not worry,anxiety, fear,stress. We are living in CRAZY times but it is vital to remain focused on him.

In John 14:27 Jesus is DISPENSING PEACE. In 1 Corinthians 14:33, Paul shares with us that "GOD IS NOT A GOD OF DISODER BUT OF PEACE". In Colossians 3:15 we read that we were CALLED TO PEACE. Now here comes the scary part. A rhetorical question..

HOW MUCH IS OUR PEACE LEVEL!! I donn;t know about you but mine is pretty low. The next question was even more frightening..WHAT DO PEOPLE SEE IN YOU..Do they see someone filled with peace and hope? Are you giving people hope and peace? THIS WAS A HUGE question for me.
ALOT of times, I have been known to freak out just a little bit but for the most part in the current situation, I think I am doing okay!

Now all of that was introduction.

Here are SIX steps to get from being choked by life's worries to getting to a place of peace and rest in Him!!
These steps are found right in PHILLIPIANS 4:4

1)Learn to rejoice..VS 4

REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS, AGAIN I SAY REJOICEWhen we learn to rejoice in his blessings during our worst of times..His peace will come and replace our worries,doubts and fears. Even on our lowest days..we can thank him that we are not going to hell!;P

2) PRAY! VS 6
Just hoping will not get it accomplished. We need to pray in the holy spirit and ASK FOR HIS PEACE to cover us and fill us anew.

3) Worship!! VS 6
Psalm 110:11-- To Him belongs all ETERNAL PRAISE. We build a habitation for Him when we praise and worship Him. Fullness of joy,life and blessings are found in His presence.

Seize time and worship!!

4)Guard our hearts and minds.VS 7-8

There is alot of JUNK that surrounds us but if we continually focus on it..our sights are not on God! 1 Corinthians 16:13 tells us to BE ON OUR GAURD AND STAND FIRM IN FAITH!! 2 timothy 1:14 tells us to guard the GOOD DEPOSIT that was entrusted to us with help by the holy spirit. It is important that we guard our hearts and our minds so that we don't become entangled in the worries of the world.

5)Build ourselves up!! vs 9
Jude vs 20 tells us to "BUILD OURSELVES UP IN OUR MOST HOLY DAITH AND PRAY IN THE SPIRIT". Confessing our struggles, praying and speaking in tongues is ways we can lift our spirits out of the low place and invite His peace to fill us.

6) TAKE A SABBATH
Take a REST..catch a break! Make time to REST IN HIM.
It's one of the COMMANDMENTS!!
