Do Not Worry

God has shown me miracles this week. It may not be a burning bush, but it has caught my eye and I am completely humbled and changed. I always think of this passage throughout my week and meditate on the truth it holds. How much time we spend worrying about things we cannot change devastates me. I want to live in the freedom and peace that things may not always be easy, but there is something and someone who gives me comfort. Praise You God!

"For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." -(Matthew 6:25-34)

Isn't it wonderful that our same God who created the universe is also the God of the small things...the details of our lives...he knows each hair on our head and cares about each moment that we are here...I just pray that I can use those moments wisely to His glory...thanks for your reminder to see miracles every day.
Hope you are doing well...I know you are about to go into a hard time of year, and I want you to know that you are in my prayers...
