We're living in a crazy, unforgiving world. One that will knock us over and deal wid us like hungry lions on a zebra ( tearing it into pieces) .
This world has the tendency to leave us hopeless, clothesless, foodless, penniless, and often leaves us on our faces battling for life!
What do you turn to when the stresses of life hits?
Some individuals often turn to dancing, singing, praying throwing tantrums while some withdraw themselves from their social environment. For me, my source of comfort is this scripture below:
Matthew 6:25-34 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. I discovered this passage of scripture at a really low time in my life; it has been my source of comfort ever since. It brings me hope, knowing that the God that i committed my life to is capable of providing for me, the fowls of the air and even the grass out in the field. When i'm low or feel empty i just reflect on it and seek God's intervention in my life. I trust God to see me through! You should too
