This scripture came to mind, it was also the reading at church this Sunday.
Where did these little guys go last night...where did they hide to be safe from the weather?
We have all been through storms, days upon weeks where we ask ourselves, "How am I gonna make it through this?!" Unfortunately for many, sometimes those days turn into years and we can become hopeless. Hopeless that the job will never come, the cancer will never heal, the house will never sell, the spouse will never return, the addiction will never stop, the child will never grow! Worry is such a burden to so many of us. It's that endless voice in our heads that nags and tears at us until we are heaped in the corner, defeated and alone.
Worry is the opposite of TRUST.
It is a lie.
LOOK AT THE BIRDS! His Word tells us to look at them...they do not worry. After the storm they play and sing, as if no storm ever came. Or maybe they are rejoicing in the aftermath of God's mercy.
I pray that whatever aftermath you are feeling today, good or bad, that you would see God somewhere in it. He is holding you in the palm of His hand, right this minute.
He is your hope, choose Him.
This is the start of a random series of posts called Choose Hope. Please pray with me that God would use our blogs to inspire HOPE in others and the desire to know Him more.
Linking up with my friend Jen at Finding Heaven today!
Thank you and may God Bless you!
