Do you ever worry . . .
. . . about your children?
. . . about finances?
. . . about what tomorrow will bring?
. . . about what yesterday brought?
"Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own."
It has been nearly 3 1/2 years since Papa
walked away from his 21 year teaching career.
We absolutely believed that the Lord was calling him into full-time ministry.
It has been nearly 2 years since the door slammed on his Pastoral Career.
For the past 2 years, Papa has moved from one job to another to another . . .
always wondering what direction the Lord was leading . . .
always wondering where next month's paycheck would come from.
What have we learned during this time?
Truly. We have learned to not worry about tomorrow.
Sadly. We have learned that today certainly has enough worries of its own.
Mostly. We have learned that God will ALWAYS be Our Provider.
He will take care of us.
He will put food on our table.
He will keep a roof over our heads.
He will keep clothes on our backs and shoes on our feet.
(often. with most excellent "finds" at the thrift stores)
"But if any of you lacks wisdom,
let him ask of God,
who gives to all generously
and without reproach,
and it will be given to him."
Thankfully. We have learned to continue to Seek God
even during the most difficult years of crisis after crisis after crisis.
We have learned to Seek God through our tears.
We have learned to Seek God through our praise.
We have learned to Seek God through the good times and the tough times.
We have learned to Seek God for wisdom for jobs and a new career path.
We have learned to Seek God for wisdom for our marriage.
We have learned to Seek God for wisdom for our children.
God doesn't always answer immediately.
God doesn't always give us the answer we are looking for.
God doesn't always answer when we want him to.
But . . .
. . . we continue to Seek God.
. . . we continue to Seek His Wisdom.
. . . we continue to Seek His Mercy and Grace.
We continue to Seek God.
Are you Seeking the Lord?
Are you Seeking His Wisdom?
Are their any areas that I can pray with you for,
that I can Seek God with you for?
I would love to join you in Prayer,
as you Seek the Lord,
for His Wisdom, and Mercy, and Grace.
