Brothers and sisters: Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice! Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near. Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.This is Christ's prescription for inner peace: Rejoice always in the Lord. Feel His nearness. Be kind to all people. Go to God with all the anxieties of your life. Always thank Him--before you get an answer--because an answer is always given.
