I lost my job last May...I'm due to give birth in November..We don't have much savings...how can I not worry? But then, I choose *everyday* to lift things up to God and trust in His love and providence. I admit there are times it could be hard -- looking at our depleting money, calculating our budget for the next few months until I give birth and find a job. It's not that easy. I know some of you can relate, right? :)
We were visiting my sister's place one Saturday, and we
talked chatted about our situation. She shared with me the Gospel Reading for that day and it was the perfect timing. I also want to share these verses with you, hoping that these might also help and inspire you when you're starting to worry...
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
If God takes care of the birds of the air or the flowers of the field, I know He is taking care of us and will always do...So why worry? Just look at the birds in the sky! ;)
May we all have a blessed everyday, everyone! (",)
