“God will take care of me.”

May 5, 2014

Each Sunday, the kids come home from church with scads of papers and/or crafts.  Yesterday, Jackson came home with this sheet of paper that he had colored.  As usual, the image corresponded with that day’s lesson.  (I love how he added those little raindrops on there!!!)

At the bottom of the paper, I saw these words:  “God will take care of me.”

I can’t begin to tell you how much I needed to see those six little words.  When Jackson handed me that paper, he was handing me an important message.  One that I needed to hear as I prepare to leave him (as well as Sidney, Morganne, and Bryan) for a 15-day trip to China.

In handing me that paper with those words at the bottom, it was as if Jackson was assuredly telling me, “Mommy, God will take care of me. You have nothing to worry about.”

How is it that something as simple as a child’s sweet scribbles and six little words can bring such peace to a mother’s heart?

I don’t know.

But, yesterday, they most certainly did….

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?  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 of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

(Matthew 6:25-34)
