So Good to Me...

Just a couple quick thoughts before we leave for this. I woke up this morning with a few (lots) of things to pack yet. In the back of my head I heard that little whisper...the nudging to sit down with my Bible...first. I opened to Matthew and read these two short verses...



Matthew 7:33&34 " But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."


Here's what I heard as I read it: Seek Him and who He is first, and THEN I will feel that assurance that He will take care of the rest. Take one day at a time...with Him, seeking Him. He has only given me enough of His grace and mercy to handle today. I do not yet have His strength to deal with anything beyond that...when I start to head beyond, I'm doing it on my own, AND that's why it seems so overwhelming. *sigh*


It's amazing how sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing something, until I come across a verse that speaks truth to me and shows me where I'm really at.


OK...got to finish packing...and then first stop on little trip will be here :)

  2. I was a BIG Steve & Barry's fan for a while, but lately I haven't been able to find anything much that I like. My husband always walks away with pants and polo shirt, but I haven't had much luck.

    Enjoy your trip!!! :)

  4. that was a good post, Sarah. And exactly what I needed to hear! I am dealing with some "ministry" issues and needed to be reminded that God's given me what I need to handle "today". I have been going beyond that and it was good to be reminded that that part is on my own..I need to get back to "today". Thanks!

    Have a great vacation...relax and enjoy!

  9. What a great reminder of where our focus should be. I am def guilty of failing to do the most important thing, spend time with my Lord, when I am having a hectic morning. Thanks for sharing your experience with all of us. Have a SUPER time with your hubby!!

  10. Isn't God just awesome! He is so faithful to give us what we need just WHEN we need it and not necessarily in advance. He desires for us to rely on Him minute by minute and day by day.

    Have a wonderful week and blessings to you!

    I do hope--and have actually prayed--that this time away will be a respite for you, a place of renewal in every way.

    Blessings!
