And why do you worry about your clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. Matthew 6:28
Good morning, my dear friend,
This morning my heart flows with love. Our 50th wedding anniversary is Saturday, June 4, and wow, that is a lot of years. Recently, I have been spending much time reflecting. Certainly, there were times of turmoil. Times of tears. And lots of wasted time worrying about things that as of this date, have not happened. Most likely will not happen. Thankfully, in faith, I gave my worries to the Lord years ago and have trusted in His tender care. Anxious thoughts still come into my mind at times; I think that is part of the human condition. But, I don’t allow fearful thoughts to linger. I’ll not waste a day worrying, not even one moment.
I cherish this scripture verse about flowers because it reminds me that if God loves and carefully tends to His flowers, how much more will He watch over and nurture my life. There is nothing to fear. My times are in His hands. So, my heart is filled with love for my Savior who has graced my life with beauty.
Friends, if you woke anxious this morning, turn your thoughts to God’s word. Scripture tells us, “God cares about you affectionately and He doesn't want you to carry one burden, one care, or one worry. Instead He has provided a way for you to live in peace every day of your life - not just a few days - but every day of your life!” (1 Peter 5:7 Amplified). Cast your cares upon Him for He careth about you. Same verse; short version. Don’t worry. God wants you to live joyfully.
