Morning’s Pink Pearls

And if God cares so wonderfully

 

for wildflowers that are here today

 

and thrown into the fire tomorrow,

 

he will certainly care for you.

 

Why do you have so little faith?

Matthew 6:30

Quiet porch thoughts while watching the very early morning sun brilliantly backlight jumbled strands of pink pearl clouds…

 

Why worry over tomorrow’s questions that have no available answers today?

 

I’ve no way of knowing what’s going to happen this afternoon…much less tomorrow or next week or month or year.

 

What you ought to say is,

 

“If the Lord wants us to,

 

we will live and do this or that.”

James 4:15

 

So, at those fork-in-the-thought-process moments, instead of racing down multiple “what if” paths…

 

How about…

 

Choosing to reframe the problem as a cleverly disguised, obstacle course and faith-building opportunity?

 

Look at the birds.

 

They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns,

 

for your heavenly Father feeds them.

 

And aren’t you far more valuable

 

to him than they are?

 

Can all your worries

 

add a single moment to your life?

Matthew 6:26-27
