Lilies & Wildflowers
Life is not all lilies and wildflowers.
In times of trouble, remember to focus on what is good. When all is going wrong think about the blessings you have in your life and thank Him for those wonderful blessings. Too often we take for granted all of the things going right and focus on the negative instead. When all hope seems lost, pray and seek Him. Life is short, worrying even though it is a natural human reaction will not solve any issues. Abstaining from worry is easier said than done. Take a deep breath and lean on Him. Spend some alone time with your Heavenly Father. You are His child and He wants all good things for you. Only He knows what the future holds. Take comfort in the fact that the maker of the stars holds you in His very capable hands.
Have you ever put all of your trust in God?
“And who of you by worrying can add one hour to [the length of] his life? And why are you worried about clothes? See how the lilies and wildflowers of the field grow; they do not labor nor do they spin [wool to make clothing], yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory and splendor dressed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive and green today and tomorrow is [cut and] thrown [as fuel] into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Therefore do not worry or be anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted), saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’” MATTHEW 6:27-31 AMP
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank you for your peace that surpasses all understanding. Thank you for holding us when we are broken. Thank you for comfort and Your word that speaks life and truth. We love you and we ask you to bless all who are hurting and discouraged today. Let them know how loved they are by You. Thank you for peace and joy. In Your name we pray, Amen.
