Far more than birds
Our human frailty creeps in when we are most vulnerable.
We feel inadequate and unprepared for tomorrow.
Finances are low. Bills pile up. People have betrayed us. Decisions need to be made and we don't know how to handle the situation.
What will I do?
How am I suppposed to live?
Jesus asked why we worry. He asked us to look at the wild flowers and their beauty.
He asked us to look at the birds of the air and note how they don't worry.
"Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6, NIV)
"And you count far more to him than birds." (Matthew 6, The Message)
Can you make your life a dance unto God, showing others how much you trust him?
Bask in who he is instead of worrying about what you aren't.
He is more than enough for today.
Don't let worry wedge its way between you and God's capable hands.
Look up! You are not a plastic bag blown by the wind! You are valued! (Getting Out of Bed in the Morning)
You are in good hands.
"Oh, how he loves you and me."
