You Matter To God - He Will Provide

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayBarn_zpsqbio3o5l.jpg


Sowing, reaping and storing away - we all do this in some way or another - maybe with money, with food or even with friends.  In these verses Jesus is showing us that our life and our body is more important than food and clothing.  Or, men and women are more important than their jobs/their occupation.  Jesus refers to us as "valuable" - we are much more valuable than the birds of the air.  In God's eyes we are so important, valuable, of great worth - so much so that His only Son died & rose again so that we might have everlasting life.  


You matter to God! 


God will provide and does provide.  The birds are not worried - why should we worry?



Worry is a trust issue (a lack of trust).  Worry is definitely one of my weaknesses and I always feel ashamed after continuously worrying about something.  God is in control - not me - everything happens for a reason and He knows what that reason is.  All we have to do is follow Him.  In the long run, whatever happened or didn't happen is for our own good, whether we realize it at the time or not. 

We can peacefully live knowing that God has it figured out.




Knowing that God loves you always makes it easier to trust instead of worry.

365 Days of Being THANKFUL - DAY#277

by AngieOuelletteTower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo Thankful_zpsd6bc7c2d.jpg
A few months ago I decided that I would start a new series on this blog called: "365 Days of Being THANKFUL".  The more I thought about it the more I felt led by God but then at the same time I started wondering if I would be able to do this for a whole year!  One month of being thankful is measurable let alone hundreds of days!
So, I am more than two thirds of the way through my challenge - I must be able to find something each day that I am thankful for, since I am so blessed.

"Jade" - Sunflower

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo 006_zpse7xgc6ou.jpg
Photo by Angie Ouellette-Tower
"Jade" Sunflower

This Sunflower was an early bloomer!  I couldn't quite capture the true color, but in certain lights "Jade" sunflower is a very pale green - maybe it is just picking up the color from the lovely leaves but it is so beautiful.  In other lighting it is a creamy yellowish white.
 
ENJOY the following pictures!
 
All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.
