Out of the Mouth of Babes (and Birds)

I can't resist this post to accompany the sweet, sweet song that is currently #1 on my playlist, Three Little Birds. Listen. Believe.

God's Word says: The Lord is near. 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. Philippians 4:5-7.

Be encouraged, my friends! Look up, my dear ones!
The Lord is near!
All is well. All will BE well.


  1. Oh I just love the Word! Yes, He is near...do not be anxious for anything!

    This is one of my favoriate verses...I keep saying it over and over again everytime I go through a trial, or I begin to respond in the realm of my emotions.

    Thank you dear friend for sharing,

  2. Beautiful reading! It goes along with Tamara's post today about handing everything over to God. I like the idea of handing over our petitions with a word of thanksgiving too! Nice reminder!

  3. Loved hearing the little voices blending with the adult voices...too cute. It's so wise to leave all things in His Awesome Hands!
