Is thankfulness a remedy for worry?

The Bible says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7, NLT)

The first step to ridding yourself of a mentality of lack is thanking God for everything you are and what you already have.

Would you like to take a moment to do so right now?

Did you know that you can release your worries simply by being grateful to God?

Thanking Him for who you are and what you have is just the first step, but it’s also the biggest because once your worries disappear, your faith takes over! And God is pleased with an expectant, hopeful heart!

“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” (see 1 Peter 5:7)

It’s God’s promise, one of His natural laws: if you make your needs and requests known to Him, you will receive His help and His grace.

Don’t worry any longer...instead, start to praise and thank God!

I invite you to do just that with me right now…“Lord, thank You for Your powerful Word that’s full of wisdom. I see that thankfulness is a key You’ve given me to be released from worry and walk in complete peace in You. I want to thank You for everything I am and everything I have. Thank You for knowing what I’m going through, everything I’m facing, and for guiding me day after day with goodness, faithfulness, and patience. I bless Your name, Lord. Amen!” 

Thanks for existing!
