Don't Worry.... : )

So, a certain friend of mine is expecting number four. Number three is almost one. Number two is three. Number one is five. She has been feeling some worry about the future. How is homeschooling going to go? How is three months with hubby away for training going to go? How is four kids five and under going to go?
Well, I don't know. But I do know that God knows. And He cares. And He's got it covered. Every day, He's ready. He's got it. So. If you are worried about tomorrow- let God have today. And when you see His hand today, you won't have too much trouble trusting that He also holds tomorrow.

I was reading along in my Bible this morning, and Jesus had something to say about it, too. He puts it so well, I guess I'll just let Him say it.

Do Not 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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look 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? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[b]?

28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If 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, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Hey Joce,
I read your blog all the time! I keep coming back to this one and had to ask....
(I am so dense, ha ha...) So is it you or is it really a friend?
If it's you, congrats!
Or, congrats to your friend.
P.S.- I was reminiscing with Amy recently about our first year at RWC... so fun...
