(God is) All About You

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:33-34 NIV

God promises to take care of our needs, but we must also promise to keep God in our life. Worrying about things out of our control gets us nowhere but more stressed. God has plans for each one of us. Our hard work and strategies will help to accomplish that plan, while our worrying just complicates things. Take time to pray for yourself, as well as for others, and ask God to guide you through tomorrow. Ask God and it will be shown to you. Trust in God and LIVE LIFE NOW!

In seeking out God’s kingdom, so much can be gained by spending time with others and listening to their story. Spending time with someone in your family, a friend or even a stranger, and really listening to what they have to say and feel is never time wasted.

As we enter the holiday season, we are reminded of so many that do without the comfort we experience in our holidays of family, friends, the smell and taste of wonderful foods, and even the gifts. We all have received a gift sometime that we treasure for our own special reason. I can’t imagine going through a holiday having none of those things. As you plan your gift list, I encourage you to add in a gift or meal or two (or three) to someone who would treasure your donation by knowing that a total stranger took the time, effort, and money to make someone else’s holidays a little brighter. And most importantly, you will be taking away that person’s worry, if even for just a bit.

“Dear God, we get caught up in always being control, always knowing what we think needs to be done and sometimes we get too busy being busy to really pay attention to some of the important things in life. Guide us to take time to stop and enjoy the beauty of the season and to let our worries come to you and not dwell on things out of our control. Open our eyes to the needs around us that we might serve others’ worries. You are the great provider and we are thankful for all you have given us. Amen.”
