lilies of the field

Do you ever have such an immense feeling of gratitude to the Lord that it just overwhelms you? I do. It's amazing how he guides our lives so perfectly. No matter how difficult situations seem, He IS in control. It shouldn't surprise me when He works things out better then I could ever manipulate, but it does. There have been so many things over the past two years that just leave me with my mouth gaping open. He tells me to not worry because if He cares for the lilies of the field and the birds He is capable of caring for me, yet it sometimes is so hard. You'd think that if I paused ...... and thought over those things aforementioned that I'd "get it" and just NOT WORRY because He has the best planned. Isn't our God awesome?!

"Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?" Matthew 6:25-31
