From Pastor...Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.  If You Do This , You Will Experience God's PEACE, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.
His PEACE will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.    [Philippians 4: 6-7, NLT]


This morning I took my wife to work and we drove along the Niagara River.  Looking out at it was pacifiying.  Even my wife said, 'It looks like a sheet of glass, it's so smooth." To say it gave us an incredible sense of PEACE, is an understatement.
The sight brought to my mind the hymn titled, "It Is Well With My Soul." 
The first verse is: When PEACE, like a river, attendeth my way,
                                When sorrows like sea billows roll;
                                Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, 
                                "It is well, it is well, with my soul."

PEACE...through the Apostle Paul, our Lord encouraged and told us:
"If you do this, you will experience GOD'S PEACE!"
Four simple action steps: 1. Don't worry about ANYTHING!
                                             2. Pray about everything!
                                             3. Tell God what you need!
                                             4. Thank Him for all He has done!
What was the hymn writer inspired to write?  What had he learned from our Lord?  He simply saw it it like a river so calm that he wrote:
"When peace, like a river, attendeth my is well with my soul!" 

we wonder "Great God, What Do I See And Hear?" with one hurricane past us; and three more coming our way; plus all the ridiculous protesting going on; and a government we pay for, continually in disagreement, which ends up with nothing accomplished, and laws in place that they
break; where can we turn? simply obey our Lord and take the four action steps!  You'll never know the results of what God said
will happen when He responds and blesses us...until... we take those steps!.

Having said all that, I offer a fifth action step. Horatio Spafford wrote the hymn.  If you want an awesome story to ponder; google, what happened to Horatio and his family, and how in the midst of all that he was able to write the hymn.  Yes, this is NOT a 'contemporary' hymn to rock by, but it is one that reaches our hearts, and points us to our Lord and His love and care for us.  
What was it again that our Lord said to do?  
       1. Don't worry about anything!
       2. Pray about everything!
       3.Tell God what you need!
       4. Thank HIm for all He has done!   [Philippians 4:6-7, NLT] 


"There is SALVATION in NO ONE ELSE!  There is NO OTHER NAME in all of heaven for people to call on TO SAVE THEM!"  [Portions of Acts 4:11&12]  Jesus is the One to call upon!  He said about Himself, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one gets to the Father except by Me!"  John 14:6

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!"  Acts 16:31
