6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.
In order for God’s plan to truly take root, you can not be anxious as his timing is perfect. We might want things right now as we are used to the right now results, with the Lord he gives those who are not a anxious a vision of what’s to come. Giving thanks is also an important step in your faith in God!
