Prayer = Peace

I have been praying a lot lately as I have had a lot on my mind and heart. The one thing that never ceases to amaze me is how, when we earnestly pray, the Lord gives us peace.

When we truly take our problems to Him, and we lay them at His feet, He picks them up and carries them for us. We no longer have to fret and worry about the outcome because it is in the Lord’s hands.

Our only obligation is to ‘trust and obey’. That is so much easier (well, most of the time – LOL) than to carry the heavy burdens that the world lays on us.

The anxiety that I was feeling just a few weeks ago has been replaced by a calm peace. I don’t have an answer for how things will turn out, but I really don’t need one. I know that, in the Lord’s time and in His way, He will reveal His plan to me and I will continue to follow.

So, is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Do you just feel like having a good cry? Well then, cry out to the Lord and let Him replace your heavy burdens with the peace that only He can give.

Lord bless,
Dana
