"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:33-34
I am not sure what is going on in your universe, but this Scripture has been a needed reminder for me lately. With all that is taking place in my hemisphere, sometimes it is hard to look into the future and not feel anxiety. This morning I am having to preach to myself about what trusting God actually means. Trust does not come into play when everything is smooth and without struggle. True trust is evident when one looks into the eyes of difficulty and refuses to give way to fear.
You see, I have learned over the years that God has my life in the palm of His hand. This trust did not come without having to face a few trials. In fact, it came because I faced the trials and God came through for me. Did that mean tears were not shed? No... but the trust kicks in when we have been given the opportunity to see how faithful our awesome God is to us! We can then look back to the past and gain faith for the future. So, my goal is this: seek God and let tomorrow be taken care of by the One who holds the universe in His hands. I am sure my concerns do not worry the God of all; rather, it is an opportunity to once again show me how much He loves me. That is an amazing God!
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope that you were able to put God first today. :) I will definitely need Him to help me with our first day back tomorrow! School will officially be back in session! I think a new box of Keurig K-cups and a chocolate bar are in order. :)
