Focused

Anxiety is to have no place in the lives of Christians because in everything there can be prayer, prayer in its various forms and modes, petition, requests, but above all thanksgiving. This is because praise is always due to God and because faith is quickened when we remember in thankfulness what God has done for us in the past. There is an echo here of the teaching of Jesus (Mt. 6:25-34; 7:7-11). 1 Pet. 5:7 is similar as it says, ‘Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you’, and as J. A. Bengel (New Testament Word Studies, vol. 2 [Kregel Publications, 1978], p. 447) aptly puts it, ‘Anxiety and prayer are more opposed to each other than fire and water.’

… guarding the Christian’s mind and emotions from being overwhelmed by the sudden onrush of fear, anxiety or temptation. This reality Christians should prove in their daily lives.

If you read this today. Promise if you can , read your bible everyday. In it are the answers to life. Don’t trust yourself for answers or others. Find your answers in the bible, then you will know for sure.

In closing I covet your prayers for me. I have been diagnosed with Melanoma and will be going for a consultation on the 27th of July then surgery.

 

Much Love Tom

  1. Beautiful post Tom, It was a timely message for me..
    If you don’t mind doing research, please check out the Blushwood Berry tree, it grows in AU..There are claims it kills melanoma quickly without harsh side effects..
    It is also known as EBC-46..
    It is now sold on Etsy under the name blushwood berry tincture. I believe you apply it topically.. God’s green earth is amazing..
    Let us pray one for another, the blessing of recovery and praise unto the Lord 🙂

  2. Thank you for this encouraging post… Philippians 4:6 is one of my favorites- be anxious for nothing. So hard when we try to do life our own way, but when I continually give it to Him, He is always faithful! Hope you have a wonderful week 🙂
