Look at the birds of the air

26 Feb

Today I took advantage of this incredible Florida weather and rode Blue Bell out on the Hawthorne Trail for a little while.

Many thoughts about post-graduation plans were creeping in, and bringing anxiety with them.

I stopped at a look-out point on the trail and noticed birds circling above…and all around. SO many of them.

The LORD reminded me of Matthew 6:25-27, 33

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?…But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Those birds have to migrate…twice…EVERY YEAR. Yet they never worry if they’ll have food or shelter…He takes care of them. And he does the same with His people, whom he cares so deeply for. He is so faithful.
