it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here…so if you’re one of the 2 people who will read this, here goes nothing.
ok so life. it’s really funny when things go completely opposite than the way you planned things, isn’t it? I really thought that things were almost set in stone but here I am trying to figure out what’s next. and today while I was reading the Bible (which I need to get back into steadily reading it…I am flawed, I know), in Matthew 6 where Jesus is teaching on worry and how worrying isn’t something we’re called to do. and, I have to say I’ve read this passage 1,000 times, but reading it today in the message just struck a heart string in my life.
here, read this. it comes from matt 6:25-26
“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not
tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.”
That is what I want for my life. I want to live a life that worships God in all I do. and in order for me to do that, like this verse says, worry about life, what I have/don’t have and details of my life can’t be there. I want to live a life where s don’t ‘fuss’ about things of no matter in this life, but what be more concerned with things that will matter and will count in the Kingdom. A few verses above this passage, Jesus warns not to store up treasures here on earth, where they will be ruined and of no value one day, but to store your treasures in Heaven….because where your treasure is, so is your heart. (vs 19-21).
with my life, where I’m at, and how I don’t know what to do next, in the midst of it all I feel blessed. I know my God is taking care of me and I know that as I seek Him, direction will come.
please pray for me, I would really appreciate it :)
