The God Box

Remember in an earlier post when I mentioned that I'm a worrier? My worries range from the most mundane things- like what I'm going to wear each day- to more serious things like the health and safety of my family. For my favorite Bible quote I listed Phillipians 4:6-7, which tells us to give all of our worries to God. While I do try to follow this, I have to admit that I'm not always sucessful. That's where The God Box comes in. In order to understand the true meaning behind The God Box, read this awesome story from Real Simple:

Inside the God Box

If you don't have time to read the story right now, here's The God Box in a nutshell. (Though it's a beautiful story so definitely read it when you have time!) Basically, you write down your worries, pray about them, and then put them in a box. Once you've done that, you've committed to putting it in God's hands and to stop worrying. It's such a simple idea- yet so powerful at the same time. I love the idea so much that I've decided to start a God Box of my own- though I think I'm going to call it The Prayer Box. For now, I'll just use a shoebox or a small basket, but eventually I'll upgrade to something nicer or maybe I'll even decorate the box myself. I guess if I'm anything like the wonderful lady in the story, I'll need several boxes over the years. I can't wait to get started. :)

Do you do anything similar to the God Box? Perhaps a prayer journal? I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog...so glad you did!
And oh my goodness...I LOVE this idea. I kind of do something like this "mentally", but I think it would help to do it physically.

Thank you SO much for sharing!!!

I do something similiar but I keep everything in a binder (that's me trying to be organized at the same time) and I love it.
