Do not be anxious about anything

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." --Philippians 4:6, 7 ESV 

Thinking about anxiety as I see it trying to rule my daughter. I also see how, as parents, we let little 'anxieties' dictate and shape our days and who we are. Worries, nuisances, concerns the enemy tricks us into thinking are not 'anxieties' to make a fuss about. I'm always blown away by what we teach our kids when we think we are not teaching. May we learn what anxieties hold our faith and trust out of His hands so that we can learn to give it all to Him. And through that, let His peace surpass our understanding and guard not only our hearts and minds but our children's as well.
