Putting it out there

I am doing a Scripture memorization as part of a thing that Beth Moore has on her blog, and this means that I am going to be memorizing 2 Scripture verses a month. Today happens to be the day when I get to start a new verse, and I can only say that this verse jumped off the page at me.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. PHILLIPIANS 4:6

Do you know what a relief this brings me? It makes me feel like a ton of bricks have been lifted off my shoulders. Way too often do I hold things close to me (stress, anxiety, doubt, fear) and make a decision not to send them off in prayer to God. I know He's there for me regardless, but I tend to forget that He's not human and will instantly be bored to tears with my problems and worries. So needless to say, when searching for a verse that gives words to what I've been feeling, this verse stood out. And now I share it with you!
