Do Not Be Anxious

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

The natural human reaction to a crisis is to panic. Anxiety will overcome us in the midst of adversity if we allow it to do so. However, the promise given to those who know Christ as Savior and Lord is peace that surpasses all understanding. In the midst of crisis we should pray allowing God to take our burdens off of us so that he can handle them.
