During the past several months, accusatory and nasty campaign ads created over-the-top anxiety overwhelming many Americans. Daily concerns such as finances, holiday plans, schedules, children and a host of other worries can also easily overwhelm us. In Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV), Paul explained it this way, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” As Christians, we should choose to be overwhelmed by God’s goodness and His perfect gift of grace.
