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. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
This is a bit new around these parts, and some of you have asked why. The traditional point of Sunday was to “press pause” on the week and spend it in prayer. Well, I don’t know anybody who does that nowadays. I certainly don’t. Sunday’s often more like the “day of jamming everything in” rather than a “day of rest”. But when I come across a verse that somehow means a lot to me, I thought I’d post it here on a Sunday. Because even if the whole day can’t be devoted to it, maybe a couple of minutes can.
