Day 242 of 365

I need to stop picking up my worries after I lay them down. I waste so much time worrying about what could happen, instead of just letting it happen. Be anxious for nothing... not what could happen, what may happen or what what may not happen.... but in everything... that means what ever you do... by prayer and petition... speak you requests or meditate on them... with Thanksgiving... give thanks no matter what the outcome... present your requests to God...(Philippians 4:6) take them to Him.

This is one of my favorite verses and I haven't thought about it much lately and I should. I have had this knotting  and twisting inside me giving a lot of sorrow lately and I know it is anxiety. I look at my bank account and I get anxious, I look at the non-moving scale and get anxious, I look at the calendar and get anxious, I hear my internal clock and get anxious. But if I truly believe those words, I need to lay down those anxieties and have a little faith that God can handle it. When I am able to do that, then I will find peace. 

Love, peace and be anxious for nothing...

You were lying in your bed,
You were feeling kind of sleepy,
But you couldn't close your eyes because the room was getting creepy.
Were those eyeballs in the closet?
Was that Godzilla in the hall?
There was something big and hairy casting shadows on your wall.
Now your heart is beating like a drum,
Your skin is getting clammy,
There's a hundred tiny monsters jumping right in to your jammies!
Bob: What are you going to do?
Junior: I'm going to call the police!
Bob: No. You don't have to do anything!
Junior: What? Why?
Bob: Because...
God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla and the monsters on TV.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man,
And he's watching out for you and me.
Junior:
..So when I'm lying in my bed,
And the furniture starts creeping,
I'll just laugh and say "Hey! Cut that out!"
And get back to my sleeping.
'Cause I know that God's the biggest, and He's watching all the while,
So when I get scared, I'll think of Him, close my eyes and
Smiiiiiiiiiiiiile!!!
God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla and the monsters on TV.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man,
And he's watching out for you and me.
Monster #1: So are you frightened?
Junior: No not really!
Monster #2: Are you worried?
Junior: Not a bit! I know whatever's gonna happen, that God can handle it!
Frankencelery: I'm sorry that I scared you when you saw me on TV.
Junior: Well that's ok, 'cause now I know that God is taking care of me!
God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla and the monsters on TV.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man,
And he's watching out for you and me.
He's watching out for you and me.
Watching, watching, watching!
Out for you and meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
