Peace

It's been a though time here in UK. The recession hit all people high and low. It is natural to feel anxious.autumn16
Sometimes we lost sight of heavenly things being so caught up in the news and media. But if we go back to the word of God, it shall give us peace.

"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.
-Matt 6:26-34

yes, jessica, so true! (and, WOW to that tree/sky photo!) robin (http://thinkonthisquotes.blogspot.com/2008/11/anxiety.html)posted this quote by CS Lewis yesterday: "Anxiety is not only a pain which we must ask God to assuage but also a weakness we must ask Him to pardon; for He's told us to take no care for the morrow." i thought it was very meaningful, and oh so true!

Beautiful images... I think the second one is my favorite.

More importantly, great encouragement. Our Creator is in the know and has our best interest in mind always & forever.
