I needed this today..

What a perfect passage of Scripture I read today when I woke up- I needed it SO badly! I have been worrying so much lately about money and bills and focusing on it instead of the fact that GOD will and HAS met every one of our needs and GOD will help us get thru! TRUST is such a hard thing to do, when I tend to want to have "all my ducks in a row". Such a good reminder this morning:

Matthew 6:19-21 A warning against materialism
"Do not lay up for yourself treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where neither moth or rust destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Matthew 6:24 "No man can serve two masters, for either he will love the on and hate the other or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."

DO NOT WORRY!!! Matthew 6:25-33 talks about how God clothes and feeds nature and ends with, "are you not much better than they" Of course, God will take care of me- He died for ME for goodness sake, not nature- he LOVES me and wants to take care of me. Why do I worry?
I LOVE how this passage ends too- "For your heavenly Father knows that you need these things (clothes,food) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrrow, for tommorrow will worry about its on things. " When my heart is enamored and consumed with God, than I will TRUST and not worry! God is good... all the time!

Thanks Chas, I need that too! I don't have a family to worry about but I do have a lot going on right now and I have been a little worried about money and apt and all those things that go along with moving, but God is good and He loves us way too much to forget about us now! Thanks :)
