Ask God for Help: Prayer not Despair
When those who are called to fish don’t fish, they fight, they stress, they have anxiety!
The result? Church dropouts. Spiritual frustration. “Bah humbug” spirituality. Weak and divided churches. Poor testimonies. Broken hearts. And, sadly, poor go unfed, confused go uncounseled, and lost go unreached.
But note the other side of the fish tale: When those who are called to fish, they flourish!
Remember Philippians 4:4-9:
Celebrate God's Goodness: Rejoice in the Lord Always.
Ask God for help: Let your requests be made known to God.
Leave your concerns with him: With thanksgiving...
Meditate on good things: Think about things that are good and worthy of praise.
Celebrate. Ask. Leave. Meditate. C.A.L.M.
We can calmly take our concerns to God because he is as near as our next breath!
Before you lash out in fear, look up in faith.
