What, Me Worry?
I love this tree. It is located across the street in a big open field and I hope they never cut it down. (more pics of this tree)
Have you noticed that often the Lord speaks to us through nature?
When I see and hear birds in the trees, I think of Matthew 6 where the Lord tells us, "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?"
This passage has come alive to me over the years as I have seen God continously provide in every situation.
As a single mother of two small children, there were days of no money nor food, but we'd find a bag of groceries on the porch or a unexpected check in the mail.
Once a Christian realtor helped me buy a condo with only $10 down.
And when deep in debt, my atheist aunt left me a surprising inheritance which paid it all off and helped me to finish Bible school, then become a missionary.
These are a FEW of the many amazing ways God had taken care of me.
So today, I am very thankful and have no reason to worry about the future because the Lord Jesus Christ is not only my Savior, my Redeemer and my Creator - He is also my Provider.
