Philippians 4:6-7 ” Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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.”

I’m writing today’s Devotional for me and no one else, but you get to read it!  The new year looms ahead with endless possibilities…all good things I could be doing.  And as with most of you, I have more than enough opportunities to do good works for the Lord… to the point I’d spread myself so thin I would be ineffective in them all.  The verses here in Philippians tell me that I need to let God know what it is I want.  For me it’s clarification, direction, and purpose of all the things I could be doing…for I don’t want to be running down a road that’s not of God, simply for the sake of running.   I Timothy 2:1-2 tells me the purpose for prayer is that I may lead  a peaceful and quiet life…and for me, that comes from calmly resting in the very center of God’s Will.
