“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Luke 12: 27-31
I must confess there are days when I feel like a 'man of little faith'. Yet I am constantly challenged to keep putting faith into action and test the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness. In the exhausting schedule of ministry over these past weeks this humble cluster of yellow top daisies caught my eye and reminded me to stop and breathe in the majesty of God’s creation. Two simple flower petals shining radiantly under a winter sun with not a worry in the world. I’m reminded that despite all the pressures, programs and deadlines it is vital to rest in the one who made us for his glory and has a way for us to live life. The words of Jesus bring us to that place of peace and empowerment.
Cast all your anxiety on him for he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
