DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF!

The sky's zenith appears centered in this dayt...

Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?

Matt 6:25 (AMP)

Have you ever wanted to just pick up a communication device  like captain Kirk and say, “Beam me up Scotty” or get an “Easy button” like those commercials have? Life would be a whole lot more interesting if we could!

One day I was sitting outside stewing over life in general. The day itself was beautiful, the sun was shining, birds where singing and there was not a cloud in the sky.  Its funny how things have an appearance of a sunny day when inside there is a war going on between your mind and your heart. Why where you stewing? you ask. Good question. The week prior to that day I had been put on disability at my job. I went from working two jobs at thirteen to fifteen hours a day,six days a week to zilch! I went from standing all day to not being able to stand five minutes without a great deal of pain. Thoughts of how I was going to live, and make ends meet, bombarded my head. The reason I was outside that morning was to get some quiet time in with God. As you can see it was anything but quiet time! As I stared into the sky I heard in my heart, “How big is the sky?”  It goes on forever, I responded. “What in this world is bigger than the sky?” Nothing, the sky covers the entire planet! ” Like the sky is to the world, I am bigger than your problems!” Whenever a bad situation arises and all I have is questions, I look up and know that God is bigger than that!

He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].

Isaiah 40:29 (AMP)

Whatever you are facing right now there is hope for you. Remember, there is no mountain bigger than, no valley darker than, no road longer than, the sky. God gives you power to overcome the mountains (the difficult situations) of life. He strengthens you to go through the valley of shadows (the things we don’t understand). He walks with you on that road that is long and narrow.

But seek ( aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ( His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. 34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

Matt 6:33-34 (AMP)

  1. Thanks for the reminder!!! MUCH appreciated!

  2. What a “Word in Due Season”! It’s so easy to forget how God works in our lives and that no matter how bad things seem, with God, “It’s All Good” Maybe that should be changed to “It’s All God” God Bless You.
