"As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." - Psalm 18:30


Philippians Four,

Verses six and seven

Say you’re having trouble getting to sleep?
    And you’ve counted 1, 099 sheep?
It’s hard to determine what your trouble might be.
    Say you’ve covered it all, from A to Z?
The pillow’s not hard and the mattress is fine.
    When you’re finally asleep, it’s getting up time?!
Have you thought about praying yourself into a nod?
    How about a few verses from the word of God?
Now, while we’re on earth, it sure isn’t heaven,
    But I’ve often found comfort in Philippians four,
                      Verses six and seven.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (See also 1 Pet. 5:6-7; Ps. 127:2; Prov. 3:24; 6:22;  Eccl. 5:12)
