Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. 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. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭4-9‬ NLT)

Rejoice in God’s control for he always has a purpose for our trials. Remain faithful and focus on the blessing for which you do have already: eternal life in Heaven. Be gentle to others because gentleness is not a weakness.

Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything!

View all things from a triumphant perspective: in the end God wins! Remember to worship, and remember to pray. All prayers go to Heaven so don’t treat it as an excuse for laziness. If you want peace from God then think like him–meditate on good things and not bad things.

When you carry God’s works, God will help you! Think about what will go right and not wrong.
