We Are Blessed Indeed!

God is so good to us, in so many ways...many times in ways that we don't even see or realize.  We should always give Him the thanks and honor that He deserves, for He alone is worthy!  You know, it was a blessing that we woke up this morning, however early that may have been, He granted us life for one more day!  If you have been reading my blog you will remember the post about washing our clothes out by hand..."loads" of fun...pardon the pun!!  But God had pity on us and we now have a washer!!  I won't name names....but they know who they are....I love them so much!  That has just been one of our "material" blessings this week, but God knows our every need, even the hairs of our head are numbered!  Isn't it wonderful that He knows our needs before we know that we need them?!  Yet we worry and fret, and wonder "where is God?" but He is right there all the time, watching our lack of faith and trust in Him, the giver and sustain-er of life!  Oh, how much simpler life would be if we put our trust completely in Him!

      "Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." ~ Matthew 6:25-34
