And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the filed, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith
Thought for the Day: God will provide
After several weeks of missing what once was my daily routine of walking and taking pictures, I made sure I planned time yesterday to walk before deciding to do anything else. As I walked, I saw so many familiar things and noticed a few more. I noticed first that I didn’t see a lot of turtles out on the logs nor did I see any geese that are normally seen around the lake. What I also notice was the abundance of scampering squirrels through the wooded areas. I walked the equestrian walk that took me way up into a beautiful area through very serene and peaceful hills. As I walked I noticed that the scampering squirrels were not chasing each other as I observed a month or so ago, now they are searching for food and hiding their nuts below logs and piles of leaves. They are preparing for winter.
After getting back on the normal paved path, I came to a familiar place where I have stopped many times to sit on a picnic table to pray. As I sat, I asked God to tell me what I need to do next. It was then that yet another squirrel scampered by searching here and there for food. I watched as the squirrel got a nut in its mouth and scampered off to hide its find. As I sat and pondered the moment, I could almost hear God telling me to start saving more in preparation for the “Winter”. I was also able to observe through watching the squirrels running through the branches making the acorns fall from the tree that God was telling me that He will provide our needs…we just need to do our part. That was my God, my Father, giving me advice for the day. I love my Father.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for giving us what we need. Thank you for the thoughts through the animals around us that You will take care of our needs. You are our awesome God. Amen.
