We all have worries sometimes but I was reminded when reading in Matthew that Jesus said in Chapter 6:25 “..do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on… Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more value than they?”
Do not worry but put your faith in God and in His love for you and your family, trusting that He knows more of what you need than you do.
“Be still and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10
One of my favorite verses, in fact the picture above is of my living room wall. Every time I find a minute to sit down in there, the feeling of peace slides over me. I’m not sure if it’s just the verse or the gentle way the birds are laid out around it (thanks to my husband who wouldn’t let his pregnant wife climb up on anything). Either way, the sentiment is calming, reassuring and warm. I thought I might share the verse in context with it’s chapter in Psalms, though it raises a little more excitement and energy then the segment by itself.
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though it’s waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. 4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the most High. 5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not dawn. 6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved. He uttered His voice, the earth melted. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. 8 Come behold the works of the Lord, who has made desolations in the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two. He burns the chariot in the fire. 10 Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge.
