God's Work is Beautiful!

IMG_3667.jpg

Matthew 6:27-29 says, "Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are."

Have you ever let worry or being anxious work good things for you? Has it ever worked? Or has it just added to the burden of trying to get something accomplished or some relationship mended... I would have to answer, "YES, to the latter!" There is such a freedom to hand the reigns of our life over to God and to ask Him how He sees life to be. How He wants to accomplish His purpose and will. And how He wants us to be relationally at peace (to the best extent that we can), with all.

Although the lillies aren't the most prominent flower around us at this time, that is blooming, the poppies are and they are simply gorgeous! My daughter and I went hiking beside our house and God had created a beautiful, lush mountainside filled with color and wonder. We simply had to stop and just take it in.

There are plenty of things to "worry" about and try to get worked up about. Worry will not solve any of it. God's reminder for us is to stop and be reminded of His way of bringing about His beauty into our lives... So what do you need to hand over to the Creator today?
