Well well well. Another day...another night. Just thought I'd drop a thought. I was sitting here thinking about, well everything, and it dawned on me. Why in the world do we worry so much. Doesn't the word of God say that as Children of the King we need not worry. Ok, maybe not in those words, but - honestly. We worry so much everyday. But we are God's children. Heirs in his family. And we worry about the smallest things, day to day. If it's about finances, we worry...Do I have enough this month? Well, God also gave us brains, we could figure out a way to calculate our expenses and not be so careless w/ our money. He gave us a way to work hard and earn our livings. We just gotta be smart about it. And if we're not smart enough. Um, hello...ask God for more wisdom! Maybe I won't have all the wisdom in the world. Maybe I won't be the next Solomon, but I think that God can help me through everything.
And sometimes, we just ask too much. How many things do you WANT in life, but don't really need. If your single...Do you HAVE to have a husband or wife, or you'll just DIE. You're biological clock is ticking..,.Tick Tock. Whatever. God could be doing you a favor, what if you married too early, to a guy with a genetic problem somewhere in the line of his ancestry and, by having his child, it could be a handicapped child, or even you could die. God knows what he's doing, let's trust him! I know he makes the most of bad situations and everything works so it's according to His plan, dot dot dot. But sometimes we can avoid those bad situations by just listening to God.
Many of us say we have a relationship with God, but how can we? I know some of you know exactly where to go if you want money. Your Parents. "mom, dad can I have 20 dollars to go to the movies?" And as their kids we had no problem asking. WEll. some of us...So why can't we be comfortable with God? Because we don't know Him well enough. It's like putting in a request for a Work Order at SAGU...(or entering a contest) for some of us. We just put in our slip of paper and wait. Whether it happens or not...WHO KNOWS? Why does it have to be that way. Why can't we just ask God... We need to know our Father. We need to spend time with Him. And we need to stop being sooo needy, sometimes all we need is HIM. not stuff! Maybe it's better he didn't give us that new car, because it wasn't right for us.
Anyway. I guess i'll get off my lil soapbox for now and just end with this.
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, F54 or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? F55 28 And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry, saying, "What will we eat?' or "What will we drink?' or "What will we wear?' 32 For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But strive first for the kingdom of God F56 and his F57 righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today.
