Worry Free in Jesus

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat;  or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today,and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and you Father knows that you need them. (Luke 12:22-30) Read more

No Need to Understand

“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,

so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.”

~Ecclesiastes 11:5

One thing I have learned through this whole process (Choosing Joy Over Sorrow) is that I don’t have to understand everything.  The details of God are sometimes blurred to me!  Sometimes I don’t get why He does what He does or how does it.  But one thing I know for sure…  I can trust Him.  I can trust God with the details.  Genesis 1:16-17 says,

“God made two great lights–the greater light to govern the day

and the lesser light to govern the night.  He also made the stars. 

God SET them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.”
