The Weight of the World

Today I had one of those days when I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders.  Within 24 hours I received bad news from 3 separate friends/family members.  And I wasn't able to do anything about either of their situations.  I felt helpless-in the sense that all I could do was to offer prayer.  I wanted to step in and somehow fix things, but it just wasn't possible.

God showed me Philippians 4:6 to stand on:  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

I'm thanking God that He is greater than each of these situations, and praying that in each case He be glorified, and that some good comes out of it.
