While in God's Grip!
"Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’"
~ Matthew 6:31
This morning one of the folks I was spending time with shared, "You do realize that God only gives us enough sense for one day."
I had to laugh, but it also caused me to stop and think about what she shared.
It goes back to several things that I learned about God as a child, and still try to remember each day. One of those is, "God gives us what we need each day, not what we want."
I know that for each of us, we all have encountered these things that seem to help us make sense of things that occur.
While we don't always understand why we are limited, or directed in certain ways, the reality is that God will always have our best self in mind. Often it is up to us to realize what lies before us, and then believe that all is filtered through God.
Today I'm thankful that God provides what I need each day.
Stay in God's grip!
