Letting Go of Worry
Hmm ...did somebody tell Bonnie that my theme for 2010 is ...trust and obey?
As many of you know, I struggle with worry. All of the 'what ifs' and 'what's going to happen now' and 'what am I going to do if'. I think you get the general idea.
But we are told in Scripture that we are not to worry. If we trust God, we will be provided for. Now provided for doesn't necessarily mean all of our wants. It means our needs. And who better to know our needs than the God who created us and sees everything that impacts us.
I love how God uses simple illustrations for me to learn important spiritual truths. As I was sitting on the patio this morning having my quiet time, I noticed many hummingbirds. They were looking for breakfast. It's so fun to watch them as their wings flap so quickly. I found this short video on YouTube to illustrate.
I don't think the hummingbirds wake up thinking 'oh where will we get our food for today' or 'if we can't find food we may die'. They simply go about their business for this day.

Now that's something I want to have. How about you?"In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength"Isiah 30:15
