Provisions

The tiniest of creature You see.

You are intimately acquainted with its way.

You speak through Your creation.

You show Your ways through brilliant glimpses.

In my quiet search for You,

I find peace and rest.

In my wonder about Your creation,

I gain wisdom and understanding.

In my faithful observing,

I find Your miracles and provisions.
~

 “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 than food,
and the body more than clothes?

Look 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?”

Matthew 6:25-26

  6. That scripture was on my mind too! I always laugh at myself when I start “explaining to God” about things (my needs, or somebody else’s)–as though He’s clueless. And He loves me enough to laugh too! God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo

    1. I think He has us ask often, so we recognize how dependent we are on Him and also understand that what we have comes from Him. God bless you BIG, too, dear sis.

      1. I agree, I heard a message about that recently–that the purpose of manna being only good for one day (they couldn’t save it overnight), was so they had to depend on Him Daily.

    1. I took the picture by my kitchen window. When I do the dishes, I am reminded often, that God will give me always what I need, just as He gives to the hummingbirds what they need.
