Do you remember when life was simpler? When you had no obligations and no life-changing decisions to make?
Do you remember the days of carefree frolicking? Of daydreaming? Of endless play?
Do you remember when your only worry was what you would wear to school? Or if you had finished your homework? Or which video game you would play after school?
What about the days when you could come and go as you pleased? When you only had two keys on your key ring? When your meals, laundry service and medical care were still provided by your parents?
Do you remember those days?
Yeah, me neither. 🙂
Encouraging words for today:
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” I Peter 5:7 (NIV)
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
“…being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
