Worry Not

Who of you by worrying

can add a single hour to his life?

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,

and all these things will be given you as well.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,

for tomorrow will worry about itself.

 Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:27 & 33-34

What is Worry?

**********************

What is worry?

Is it the wish for life to hurry

to the happy ending part

the page that doesn’t stress our heart?

~

What is worry?

Is it an irritating fury

that things again have gone awry

and not according to our pride?

~

What is worry?

Is it our vision going blurry

when our eyes are off the ball

and we forget Christ sees it all?

 I’ve been tempted to worry more than usual lately…

so this post is for me.

But I thought I’d share just in case you need it too.

Ancient of Days

On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty , let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

John 7:37-38

Ancient of Days

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nature

is evidence of Divine Heart

leaving fingerprints on earth

and quenching my thirst

like no other art

The Cross

is Mercy’s Arms outstretched in love

healing, helping, holding

and bringing hope that flows

from Heaven’s throne above

His grace

is Emmanuel’s selflessness displayed

in providing the only way

from sin-stained to saved

through Ancient of Days!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Where, in nature, have you seen evidence of a Designer?  Water in the form of creeks, rivers, and lakes always causes me to ponder the Author of creation.  On this particular day, that my son and I hiked into see this waterfall ( the first time for both of us), it was especially inspiring.  I literally broke out into an old song that begins with, “You are awesome in this place, mighty God.  You are awesome in this place, Abba Father…”

It wasn’t just about the loud roar of the waterfall or the relief of having safely traversed a very steep hike down a ravine (using ropes kindly attached to trees by previous people), or even that we’d walked past enormous old growth cedars.  It was about my son. My firstborn son.

I love him – a lot!  He’s been through a deep valley recently, and my heart rejoices to see him climbing out of it.  Now, if I , as an imperfect mother, can love my son so deeply… how much more so does God love us?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Creator God,

Thank you for your awesome creation that displays some of your power and glory.  Abba Father, I want to thank you also for loving our children even more than my husband and I do.  Continue your good work in them and us, and enable me to keep praying faithfully for your perfect will to be done in these young lives. And mighty God, may your will be done in my life too!

In your Son’s name,

Amen
