Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6–7
Many of us will be very familiar with not only these words from St Paul, but also the deeply profound spiritual truth of these words. The difficulty of not letting anxiety take a grip on our hearts and minds to surrender all to Christ isn’t easy. How do we cultivate and live out the ‘non-anxious presence’ of Christ for such a time as this? Through the deep wisdom of Holy Scripture and the inspired example of Jesus Christ this series will be a time of encouragement on how we can cultivate the peace of God to guard our hearts and minds. As followers of Christ and the body of Christ, an encouragement to live out the beautiful Godly fruit of the Holy Spirit in these anxious and agitated times.
