Water Lilies

"Water Lilies" by Claude Monet

"Consider how the lilies grow.  They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these."
Luke 12:27

By the time you are reading this, I probably somewhere in Texas.  Driving along.  Texas is a big state.  I wanted to schedule a blog post since I've been in a bloggy groove lately.  I guess this post in a bit more serious than my Nick Miller photos.  This blog post was inspired by a worship night I had a few nights ago with my sorority.    

Look at the verse above.  I don't know what you gather from the verse, but I gather this: God provides.  The End.  He provides the color for the flower's petals.  He provides the worms for the birds.  He provides the smaller fish for the bigger fish.  God provides.  How much more does He provide for His children then?  His children who He loves deeply?  

We are told not to worry countless times in scripture.  Our God is in control and we should take peace in that.  I know, I know.  Easier said than done.  I'm right there with you.  I worry and stress and get worked up.  We are in this together.  

I guess what I am trying to say, is that next time you are stressed about whatever it is you get stressed about, consider the lilies.  

Consider how the lilies grown.  They do not labor or spin.  

Pray for my car ride to Texas.
I don't like long car rides.
