Don’t Worry, Pray

Trust GodDon’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Philippians 4:6 NLT

 This scripture is the epitome of “let go and let God”. While this may be considered a cliché phrase, almost everyone uses it from time to time. Why? Because we all get stressed and worried, but we know that it does no good so we try to psych ourselves out by saying “let go and let God” as if it were that simple.

Actually, it is as simple as saying it, if you believe it in your heart. If you make the choice to not worry about anything and pray about everything, telling God specifically what you need and thanking him for all he has done, then you have “let go and let God”. Richard Rohr says this is “a letting go that is ego-lessness, trust and surrender”. This type of letting go is peace. Let go of worry and grab your peace today.

About DestaIsJoy

Desta is an African Amharic name meaning "joy". My spiritual father and former pastor has twin daughters and one's middle name is Desta. I latched on to that name once I knew the meaning and use it in one of my e-mail addresses and for my website: where I promote my book and other writings. The joy of the Lord is my strength and for that I am truly grateful. For every mountain he has brought me over, for every trial he has seen me through and for every blessing, for this I give God praise!!!
