Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.
My husband woke up at 2am the other night. I was awake feeding the baby. We both haven’t been sleeping. With a 4 year old that has been waking me up at the crack of dawn, an almost two year old, and a newborn. Sleep seems a thing of the past.
I have found myself worrying constantly. I worry about my to do list. I worry about the state of my house. I worry about getting the kids out the door on time. I make mental checklists and they never seem to get done. I don’t have time to complete everything on my plate. So, my checklist looms over my head like a rain cloud that is getting ready to erupt in lightening and thunder.
This morning, my 4 year old woke me up at 5am and in the early morning darkness I prayed, “Lord, teach me not to worry!” It was in that moment that I felt the antidote to worry and it was WORSHIP. I felt the Lord leading me to sing songs in the dark, lift his name, and praise all that he was and is doing in my life. I began to de-throne worry and re-throne Jesus. You see, there is no room for worry when we worship. Worry elevates our problems. Worship elevates God who is above our problems. Will you join me today and elevate the God who cares for us?
