Do Not Worry

24 11 2009

Over the weekend I did my first craft fair with Joy Jewelry and as I prepare God reminded me of this verse…

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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 Phil 4:6-7 (NIV)

As the day of the craft fair came, like with any deadline, worry and anxiousness became an enemy, as my mind began running a million miles a minute, so this verse is a good reminder of what I should do.

As I look at this verse there is one key question I must ask myself and be assured of the answer. Does God care about me and about the ministry of Complete Joy? I know the answer to both is yes, so remembering this I can take my petitions to the Lord with joy, knowing that He cares for me. It is the joy of knowing this truth that allows the peace of God to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Besides, as I prepared for the craft fair, I realized it wasn’t selling Joy Jewelry that really mattered; my goal became clear, to touch those who came to our table with the love of Christ. The benefits of this new goal, I sold $115 worth of Joy Jewelry, and my friend and I were one of the top sellers at the craft fair, because our focus was on meeting the needs of the people, not worrying about how much money we made for ourselves.

Blessings and Complete Joy,
