Is it weird that I’m in a blogging mood right now? I really wanted to go dancing again tonight but I actually listened to God when He said no to spending more money. Gotta give myself a pat on the back for that one and the Holy Spirit a pat on the back for caring enough to let me know it was a bad idea.
So here I am… blogging away and having no idea what to say. I feel like my head has been swarming lately with SO many different things. I can’t even figure it all out. I’m beginning to understand as time rolls by that He’s really got my life in the palm of His hands. He might not be directly controlling everything (I’m not a robot ya know) but He’s definitely guiding me through this crazy life. I’ve been worrying about this whole job situation (really silly actually considering that I’ve seen my Father prove Himself over and over again).
Matthew 6:25-34 comes to mind. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin, Yet I tell you that 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? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Oohh just let me sit in this. Just sitting… it totally feels good. I feel safe, loved, grateful, and excited for life! Why do I waste time worrying when I can spend time encouraging and giving? Oh silly me! Oh silly us (I know you do it too)! Well good thing God doesn’t just give us one chance to trust Him, focusing on bringing the kingdom TODAY instead of worrying about tomorrow. Hallelujah, my God is the God of second and third and a million chances. Let us not abuse His grace! Let’s be a radical people that live who we were made to be, walking down the path of life!
