Fields of Grass

"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, O 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 you need them."  Mat 6:30, 31 & 32

This is the third of a 4 part "Worry Wart" series.

I think about a field of grass blowing in the wind and just how relaxing that can be - it is truely beautiful and it's only grass.  We are really being scolded here in these verses.  For Jesus to say "O you of little faith" really shows that worry is insulting to our heavenly Father.  Anxiety is not proper stewardship.  The Gentiles represent those who do not know a personal and loving God - it's understandable when they ask these worrisome questions 'what am I going to wear? or eat? or what is going to happen to me?.........'  It's not understandable when we as Christians worry.

Trying not to worry always end back at trust.  I looked up trust in the thesaurus - faith, belief, conviction, confidence, expectation, reliance, dependence.  I think my favorite is confidence - I am confident in God.  You can't worry and trust at the same time.

Lord, please forgive me for worrying - I am striving to trust You in everything.
