Adults have pacifiers too.
Those of you who, like me, tend to worry over things might enjoy this print. A pacifier is mostly used to pacify a baby, but oftentimes the baby grows into a toddler who really doesn’t need it anymore. But, it’s a comfort to them, so they keep using it and wanting it closeby. Right now this describes my two-year-old! She can go all day, even napping, without it when at daycare, but as soon as we pull into the driveway, she yells “My boppy here!” The pacifier is her comfort item. A lot of times, our worries become comfort items – our pacifier. This verse really called out to me this week:
Most people pick up on the verse right before: “Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have.” (Philippians 4:6). While I agree wholeheartedly that verse 6 is important and we should all heed such advice, verse 7 is what really got my attention as I was doing my First 5 Bible Study a few nights ago. The very thought that God is standing guard over my thoughts is humbling. And His peace will cover – even erase – our negative, worrisome, and anxious thoughts and feelings. If only we will let him!
So, here is Freebie #2, an 8×8 inch print of Philippians 4:7, using graphics by Callie Hegstrom of Make Media Co.

Have you heard about the First 5 App? We’re studying Genesis this month and one of the things I love is that the ladies at Proverbs 31 who write these studies tie in verses from all over the Bible! This is just the 2nd month of First 5 App and I have already learned of so many Bible verses that I had previously not read, or now look at through a different lens. Also check out their accompanying Experience Guide – it really helps you think about what you’re reading!
Thanks for stopping by today! What is your latest “ah-ha!” Bible verse?
