LIVE A CAREFREE LIFE



LIVE  A  CAREFREE  LIFE

Enjoy these few words by Pastor Jeff Jones


"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV
Did you know that it's possible, and even biblical, to live a carefree life...a life devoid of worry and anxiety, a life of absolute peace and joy in every situation you face. It is possible, but only by faith. You have to believe these two verses, and put them into practice, and that's where faith comes in.

The Amplified Bible translates that verse this way: "Do not fret or have anxiety about anything….”

God wouldn't tell us not to worry or fret unless it was possible. First He tells us it's possible, and then He gives us the four things necessary to live this carefree life.

Do you see them? They are right there in the verse—prayer, supplication, thanksgiving, and requests.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)
