So, I spoke in Georgia last night at New Hope Church. I was thrilled for the opportunity to share the hope and love of Jesus… so excited that I left my outfit hanging on my bedroom door. What does a girl do in the situation? She sets out in a strange city for a bargain.
I’ll save you from all the crazy the details. Needless to say, I fretted over the whole situation. However, I finally found something that would work (and not a bargain might I add). After trying it on, I walked up to the register and asked the sales lady to please cut the tags off, and ring it up, then off to church we drove.
It was when I was walking in the church that felt the “love tap” from the Spirit. “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you Wendy [insert mine] of little faith? Matt. 6:28-30 full text Matt.6:25-34
Yeah— can you feel a sista’s pain?
God loves us too much to leave us like we are. I’m so grateful for the convicting power of His Word and the presence of the Spirit that aligns together to keep me straight.
If you are worrying today, trust the Lord. He cares about the flowers of the field, and He cares about you, and everything that concerns you.
