More vs. Enough
Rev. Courtney Clayton Jenkins
God, many of us have tried to substitute peace with things, ideas, and people that leave us feeling empty. Rather than look within for the peace that You give us; discontentment and anxiety overwhelm us, and we feel imprisoned. Lord, teach us to let go of feelings of anxiety, and embrace faith as our focus.
Thank You for Your word which invites us to meditate on that which is true, noble, lovely and of good report. With the help of Your Spirit, we practice praise and cultivate a posture that will produce peace. We choose to remember all that You’ve done for us to create stores of memory that limit the impact of anxiety. Lord, show us how to pivot so that we can cultivate a proper perspective. We choose optimism over pessimism so that we might find hope in seasons of uncertainty.
God, we focus on You so that Your presence will be the priority in our lives. Thank You for lovingly steering our hearts and minds away from anxiety and in the direction of peace.
In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.
