Resting in His Peace

Philippians 4:6-7 (The Message)
"Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

This journey is a slow process, and sometimes it's difficult to think of what to write. We know that the improvement, even if things go really well, will be incremental. Big days, like yesterday's new menu item, are few and far between.

So why are we writing today? Because it's April 30. Besides being my Dad's 88th birthday (we miss you, Dad), it's the 30th day of the month. This is our 30th post this month. We couldn't get this close without meeting the goal of a post per day.

Still, there's a message in the verse above. We can make little jokes, because our minds are at peace. We are not worried. We know that God is in control of this situation. We have "let petitions and praises shape our worries into prayers, letting God know our concerns." And we are at peace.

We hope you have an awesome day today. We are. We are resting in the peace provided only by Jesus Christ.
