A beautiful message from "The Message"

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers— most of which are never even seen—
don’t you think he’ll attend to you,
take pride in you, do his best for you?

What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax,

to not be so preoccupied with getting,
so you can respond to God’s giving.

People who don’t know God and the way he works
fuss over these things,
but you know both God and how he works.

Steep your life in God-reality,


Don’t worry about missing out.

You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Matthew 6:30-33 (The Message)

And here is verse 33 from the CEV:

“But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well. “

Have a blessed Sunday, friends. I love you and pray for you often, and hope to write a “personal” blog post really soon! 🙂
