So, if you read my prior post, you know my brother was waiting on test results. The good news, what they checked was fine. The bad news, it was inconclusive so two doctors will perform another test this week. Also, mother will have a biopsy this Friday. Life is so full of things that could bring me to worry, but then I remember:
Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? “Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
It is so hard sometimes not to worry, but I think God understands me, I can’t help it. But I try hard every day this week to pray, not worry.
Have a great week and don’t worry, or try not to.
And the blinds, half open, praying for answers.
