Phillipians 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’.
In this day and age when we expect everything instantly it is so easy to be dissatisfied when the results aren’t instant and lose our peace. The scripture above reminds me that God is in control of everything and that although things may not happen in my timing, they will happen at the right timing. Especially living in London I know that a lot of the time I am ungrateful and sulk through days when things do not go exactly as I planned. This scripture reminds me that being moody never achieves anything, and on the contrary may work against me.
As a result I have found that by living daily to be thankful, and looking at what I have instead of what I do not, God has blessed me.They say the devil is in the detail, but I believe that God is. It’s the smallest change in attitude that makes a difference.
