Don't Worry About It

I always enjoy watching the children of our church after our services. On Wednesday nights you can find Morris Whitworth, Maggie McCloud and Georgiana Barrow playing in the Main Event room. The thing that stands out to me most about these kids is the complete lack of worry in their life. Think about it. I seriously doubt that the three of them ever wonder how they are going to eat tomorrow. Nor do they have to worry if they are going to have warm clothing to put on. Why? Because they have caring parents who know their needs and are faithful to provide for them on a daily basis. I often wish I could revert back to the "days of being a kid" when I didn't have to worry about the economy, gas prices, wars overseas, etc. And yet God reminded me this week that He is inviting me to enjoy that type of "worry free" life as His child. Matthew 6 teaches us that we have a Heavenly Father who KNOWS OUR NEEDS! He takes care of the lesser things in His creation (birds and flowers) which virtually guarantees us that He will take care of us who are His children. What a joy and comfort in the times of uncertainty. Be encouraged this week. Take the time to sit and watch a child and reflect on the "worry free" life of a child and be reminded that God desires that same type of life for you as His child.
