Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God gives beauty to flowers and life to grass. In the grand scheme of things, these are transitory and insignificant. He sent his Son from Heaven to save us, so he will most definitely give us what we need until we go home to live with him! Let's look at the beauty in God's world and be reminded that he loves us more than these things and has promised to sustain and bring us home to him!

My Prayer...

Loving Father and Almighty God, forgive my distractions over temporal things, especially when they lead me into worry and distrust. I believe you have given me everything I need in Jesus, and the gracious abundance of your blessings has poured into my life. In the precious name of Jesus, I ask for the strength to trust you more. Amen.
