Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15
It seems that as Christians we often have a hard time living in the peace of Christ. Like the rest of the world we love to worry. We worry that we’ll lose our jobs, that we’ll lose someone we love, or we worry that there won’t be enough money to pay the mortgage this month. If we want to, we can find things to worry about each and every day of the week.
Instead of living with the angst and worry of day to day life, we need to be thankful for what we’ve been given, and allow Christ to influence our thoughts and behaviors, and live for Him. Today I want to live for Christ, and let His peace rule in my heart.

Great blog and great post today. We all can find a lot of things to worry about, but we need to remember Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
May God richly bless us all.

What a wonderful post, I’m going to try hard to think this way. I’m so glad you and your family were not hurt in the fire, how scary.
Thank you for sharing this great scripture today! It’s important to take some time to just be grateful for things, and remember how blessed we are.
Many studies have also been done on the power of gratitude in daily life. It can release stress and actually tune you in to where you should be going and what you should be doing next. And like they say, you can’t grow unless you’re thankful for what you already have.
