“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? 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” – Matthew 6:25-27 New International Version
Today I received an email. When I started to read the email I began to cry. I immediately called my Mummie…and of course she wanted to stop and talk about what went wrong and such. All I wanted to do was to cry about the situation for a bit, but of course that was NOT going to take place on this evening!
You see I recently applied for a program. A program that I wanted BADLY! I prayed about it and felt as if it was mine….but after the email I realized that it was not mine. I didn’t know (and still don’t know) how to take it. *sigh* Now after the discussion with my Mum she made some things clear.
- God knows what is best.
- God works in HIS own way in HIS own time.
- Sometimes HE answers “yes”, “no”, and “not right now/maybe”.
Now as I type this a song comes to mind… “Don’t Pray and Worry” by J. Moss.
He knows all that’s before you
He will never neglect His child
Nor will ignore tears in your eyes
Lay your cares to rest
The righteous won’t be forsaken
Just hold to your faith
And His word will be manifested
Be steadfast and don’t fear
Don’t pray and worry
The prayers of the righteous availeth much
Be not weary in well doing
God of Heaven can do anything
Lay your cares to rest
For the righteous
He who holds the future
Also rules this land
And responsible for each breath we take
Just pray and then leave it there
Pray and then leave it there
In the end I am learning just how much the Lord is taking me through. This is just a little rough patch, a small hurdle that I must jump over in order to receive the blessings that HE has for me!
Love, Peace, and SOOOOOOOUL!!!!
