Seek First....

Some of you are aware of the utter dissarray that my life has been in for the last month. I feel as though I have been on a roller coaster, ups and downs, blessings, Satan attacking, and personally I am fed up with him! I just want to thank everyone who has called, texted, emailed, and showed concern, your support truly means alot, and I cannot say thank you enough for the way you all have tried to cheer me up and boost my confidence.

And Krissi, she posted a blog for prayers for us, and just knowing that there are people out there praying for us that don't even know us, as well as those who do, is very so thoughtful, touching, brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.

I still feel slightly numb from the intensity of it all, but it too shall pass. I just pray that I can sleep tonight, as that has been when I lie awake and dwell, toss and turn and get five minutes here and there only to wake up every hour or less.

This particular passage from Matthew, chapter 6, has been my saving grace through all of to me by Amy Brewer at the midst of all the chaos...

...Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, or what you will wear. Is not life more important than food and the body more important 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

And last but not least....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.

I am progressing, because I am not as tearful as I was, lol, or is it because there's nothing left to cry. I'm going with the progress!
