Day 16: Count your blessings

Today’s Scripture:

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:33-34

 

Additional Scriptures:
Psalm 1:1-3

Prayer + Reflection

  1. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal and break down those things in your life that compete with God for your attention and foster anxiety in your soul.
  2. Ask God to rekindle a fresh hunger to abide in His word and presence, to buffer against the pressures of life.
  3. Invite God to reveal His plans and promises for you so that you become preoccupied with the things most important to Him.

Family Moment

One way to overcome anxiety is to count your blessings. Write them on strips of paper and throw them in the air like confetti. Thank God for each of them as you help pick them up.
