Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I’m confused about what God wants. Two very important women firefighters are throwing away an opportunity to serve a community that needs them. I think I know why and how wrong their perception is but I don’t know what God wants. I usually blunder in and make matters worse. I do know to keep my focus on Jesus so I can keep my peace. Please pray for them and for God’s guidance.
