Calm Your Nerves

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

If you have a case of the nerves, turn to this verse. Put your focus on your faith. Imagine the peace of God flowing over you. Let it flood your nervous system. Replace anxious energy with His calming soothing power.

Today's Prayer:

Sovereign Lord, I will keep my heart and mind on You.
