Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). Speaking for myself, I am very hesitant to share everything that is bothering me with other people. In my mind I think, “They probably aren’t interested anyway.” I may consider their situation
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I
But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven: A land which the Lord thy God careth for:the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain to you; listen carefully to what I say.” (Acts 2:14) Spring! This is the time of year when the flowers bloom again, the birds come back looking for
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord (Psalm 27:14). “Wait!” That is not an easy thing for most of us to do. We have to wait in doctors’ offices. We have to wait at stop lights when we are in a hurry.
