Walk Away From Worry

May 3, 2012

A few years ago, our Bible-study leader challenged us to memorize a chapter of the Bible and recite it to the group. Internally, I began to protest and groan. An entire chapter, in front of everyone? Memorization had never been my thing; I cringed as I imagined long silences while everyone watched me, waiting for the next words.

A few days later, I reluctantly leafed through my Bible, looking for a set of verses to learn by heart. Nothing seemed right until I landed in Philippians 4.

I read this verse in silence, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (v.6). That’s when I knew which chapter to memorize, and how to walk away from my anxiety about the assignment.

God does not want us to agonize over future events, because worry paralyzes our prayer life. The apostle Paul reminds us that instead of fretting, we should ask God for help. When we continually take this approach to anxiety, God’s peace will guard our hearts and minds (v.7).

Someone once said tongue-in-cheek, “Why pray when you can worry?” The point is clear: Worry gets us nowhere, but prayer gets us in touch with the One who can handle all of our concerns.

When you feel the tension mounting,
And across the busy day,
Only gloomy clouds are drifting
As you start to worry—pray! —Anon.
It’s impossible to wring our hands when they are folded before God in prayer.

Read: Philippians 4:1-9

Be anxious for nothing. —Philippians 4:6
Bible in a Year:
2 Chronicles 33-36

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Pfc. Michael J. Metcalf, USA, 2nd Battalion, 504th Infantry, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, KIA Afghanistan 22Apr2012



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Nothing but the highest level of respect for our service-men and women, but I could not help but think that Navy sailors must also maintain a skill level with square-rigged sailing craft, as these will be the only weapons of war left operational in the USA after another four years of 0bama military cuts. To say nothing of the condition of our energy infrastructure. What could be "greener" than a wind-powered warship?

WOODEN SHIPS AND IRON MEN!!



070530-N-2893B-001 CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (May 30, 2007) - About 100 feet above the deck of USS Constitution, Yeoman 1st Class Rob Santiago and Seaman Nola Sparks bend a 500-lb., 158-square yard cotton canvas sail to the ship's portside mizzenmast topsail yard. About 20 Sailors spent several hours on May 30, 2007, rigging the first of six sails to the 2,200-ton, three-masted wooden frigate, readying "Old Ironsides" for two underway demonstrations this summer. USS Constitution is - at 209 years old - the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 64 active duty U.S. Navy Sailors, and visited by nearly half a million tourists annually.
