Daily Dose-Mental Health Devotional for Peace

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Today I had one prayer,

“Lord, do I have enough in me to handle this”

I walk alongside an adult child recovering from addiction. We have traveled this ordeal since summer. Only by the strength of God have I stayed afloat. Then, as I felt pulled, a second adult child has moved in and faces recovery. Addiction recovery never comes without mental health recovery.

I wear my mom cape daily, but I am tired. So, without hesitation, I turned to God for answers. The verse I first thought of was 19- God will supply all our needs according to His will through Christ Jesus.

Opening up my Bible, I read the chapter and felt the full power of Christ hit me in the above verses.

It is not strength I need because it will come from Him. Peace is necessary for a calm heart and mind, for comfort on my down days, and for quiet wisdom to restore my doubt to hope and faith.

His peace will guard my heart and mind, and in Jesus, I have enough in me to handle this.
