6 Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving. 7 Then God’s shalom, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yeshua. 8 In conclusion, brothers, focus your thoughts on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovable or admirable, on some virtue or on something praiseworthy.
Worries have weighed me down throughout my life. So much so that it has at times become crippling.

Focusing on studying God’s Word and prayer has given me the peace to face the challenges of living in this day and age.
