0 Peace When I’m Anxious

Dealing with anxiety over bills and finances today and this was the verse of the day in my Bible app:

When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
—Psalm 94:18-19

And the previous day’s verse goes along with it. We need to rest in his peace that passes all understanding, and allow the peace of Christ to calm any anxiety that threatens to take control in our lives. He is on the throne and in control and we need to trust that he has a plan even if we are going through trials and storms in life.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
—Colossians 3:15

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
—John 14:27

Jesus recognizes that we are going to have difficulties and troubles in this world, but he gives us hope because he has overcome the world and we can rest in that!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
—John 16:33

So do not be anxious! Bring your worries and cares to the foot of the throne and leave them there and God’s peace which goes beyond this world’s understanding will rest upon your shoulders!

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
—Philippians 4:4-7

Here is the next single, “Precious Is The Blood” from the upcoming CD “White”. This song pays homage to the hymn “Nothing But The Blood”. It speaks to our thankfulness for the gift of the Cross and the shed blood of Jesus that can wash us clean and make us white as snow. Huge thanks to Nick Garrett-Powell for recording/producing this song as well as playing bass and percussion. Thanks to Tyler Geel for adding the great accordion and Amy Aldrete for her gorgeous voice!


Precious Is The Blood

In the image of a Lamb
Holy God stepped down
To become a man
But remain a spotless

How precious is the blood
That washes me, that crimson flood
Now I’m as white as freshly fallen snow
I am clean and forgiven
This I know

For the gift of the cross
I humbly bow and give you thanks
For without You I was lost
Now I am found, I am Yours
I’ll celebrate

So tell me what can wash away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
And what can make me whole again?
Oh, I say, nothing but the blood of Jesus

Isaiah 1:18; Psalm 51; Ephesians 1:4-14; Philippians 2:6-11; Hebrews 7:11-28; 1 Peter 1
