MANY DEMANDS UPON OUR TIME and many opportunities waiting to be explored often fill our lives too full with activities and distractions. When this happens it is not surprising that we grow anxious and lose our sense of peace and tranquility.
Today remember that God and God alone is able to care for all that exists; we can trust our smallest and largest concern to the wisdom and love of God. Peace, hope, calm, and joy are the fruits of placing our confidence in God. May these gifts be yours in abundance.

Recall a time when you clearly placed your trust in God. Describe that experience. Share your thoughts.
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
