“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.”
Philippians 4:6-7

For the past 4 years, Jake and I have had our hearts set on the Pacific Crest Trail. And every year, we talked ourselves out of it. There was always something that was more important; something we couldn’t give up; something we had apprehensions about.

Amazing things happen when you put your trust in God. We’ve planned financially, physically and mentally for this trail and STILL, this world seemed to hold us back. Worry was the one thing we had to let go of in order to fully go after our dreams. “Worry carries tomorrow’s load with today’s strength” – that’s heavy. There’s no way we would be able to hike 2,650 miles with that much weight!

Whatever your dream, include God – with prayer and thanksgiving. Don’t worry.. He will make your paths straight.
