Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks.  And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I love this verse because God is telling us to ask Him for everything we need.  Even when we don’t understand why our prayers go unanswered, God knows what is best. He is telling us to still ask Him and trust Him and He will give us peace in His answer in which we may not understand.  When we ask Him for specific things and it feels as if God is not answering us, He is! He is answering in a way only God can answer.  And when we don’t get the answer we want, just know God is strengthing us and asks us to keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  We need to have faith in what His answer is even when we cannot understand it.  God’s peace will come.
