Off the cuff and probably will be revised later but.......

These verses spoke to me today after a hard few days and a lot of worry on my part, I sat down to read my bible today. I didn't have any direction to turn, because I had finished up my LBY homework yesterday and will watch the nect video tomorrow. So I just opened my Bible. I am not normally one to do this. Open at random and expect God to speak. But today, I just read where it opened. It was in Matthew chaper six. The middle of the sermon on the mount. As I read I came across, the passages of the lilies in the field. I started calming down. God used those scriptures to speak to me, as I was nearing the end of the school year last year and wondering if I had made the right decision to stay home. I knew then that He would provide. But I wasn't calm enough yet. I had just typed the words "I don't want great riches, just enough to pay my bills and eat" Then I came to verse 31 and 32. Wowzers. He was speaking directly to me! He knows what we need. I don't mean that ingerenal terms. I mean that spicifically. He knows I need to buy butter. He knows hubby needs a fire extinquisher and first aid kit for his cab. He knows. He knows.

God gives us comfort in His word. Somtimes I just don't see it right away.
Praying for you and yours.
