If you are financially well off you better be praising the Lord Jesus up in Heaven, because stressing over money is the one thing that will get to me.
But, I also praise God for how my life is, billions of people have it worse off than I do. I am blessed to know what hard work is, blessed to not be spoiled. To know the value of things. Thank you God, for blessing me with work.
I don’t necessarily wish I had it easy, but I wish I didn’t have to worry.
Yes, the Lord says
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25 NLT)
But Lord, do I worry.
You have shown me that you are faithful Lord, that you will take care of me and my family. Continue to help me be faithful, by your faithfulness Lord - here is my “tumblr prayer”.
I have enough clothes to wear.
I have food to eat.
For today, even for tomorrow and the days that follow.
But its those days that are farther ahead I worry about, the ones that I do not know my future.
The days where I must move out get my OWN house
OWN phone bill
pay my OWN student loans
OWN credit cards
etc etc etc…
Yeah, I do many of the things on that list now, but not all.
Because they haven’t come yet.
They are ‘in tomorrow’ - God you tell me not to worry, so I pray that you give me peace. Calm me, Lord.
“The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.” (Psalm 29:11 NLT)
Lord, you have given the promise that you will take care of your children. I don’t remember exactly where it is said, but if we call on you, you will answer.
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7 NLT)
So here I am God, keep my mind focused on you.
As I knock, as I seek, I will be waiting for your answer, I will be waiting to find.
