I read this really great daily hope column today and i loved the message
Its all about worrying and putting our Faith in God! My favorite part is when he says,
“One of the pictures God used to help understand his character is the picture of flowers. Jesus said, “Look at the lilies and how they grow … if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you? You have so little faith!” (Matthew 6:28-30 NLT). Flowers are not made beautiful because of their anxiety. They are made beautiful because of the character of God.”
I dont know how much i have worried this past month! Worried about his deployment, and how i would deal with it. Worried that i wouldnt find another job if i quit my current one. Worried that everything would just fall apart….
All along i stopped asking God to take away my worries and stopped looking towards him for my answers. He did deploy and his tiny emails here and there give me more Joy than anything. I did quit my job and my friend helped me get a job at her place of work. Im hoping i get it this week 🙂 Pray that i do!! I keep worrying thinking God wont help me, but he does! eEven if i havent prayed for him to, he knew already what would be best for me!
I loved that he used the flower example. Our anxiety makes us unhappy, it makes us suffer more than we have to. If we could just look towards God he would take this away and give us the peace that we need to go on in our lives and wed be happier because of it. A smile is much more beautiful than a worried face!!! 🙂 God always provides for us, just as he provides for the simplest flower and the birds of the air!
