I follow along with the Little Bible Plan that can be found on The Little Faith Blog and the challenge for today was to come up with a theme verse for 2017. I was having a really hard time with it so I asked God if He could help me find the perfect verse as my theme for the year. I flipped through my bible and saw that I had marked, starred, and highlighted Matthew 6:25-34 and I remembered the day I found those verses and just had to share on Instagram for everyone to go read them. He spoke to me through those verses. I couldn't remember what the verses were so I reread them and tears were streaming down my face. These were my verse for the year. I am person who stresses and get anxious very easily so these verses really speak to me. Here is what they say:
25 “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? 26 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 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? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
So these are my verses for the year. To let go of the stress and the worry that is extremely unhealthy and to live in the moment and not worry about tomorrow.
Luv Ya! ❤
