Hes reminding me!
Thank you Lord for the early morning reminders.
Every morning I check my email to read a daily scripture and devotional. As I wrote my blog yesterday I had many questions about my moms friend Joanne and what Gods plan is for her. Why 2 years in the hospital?
Gotta love my scripture today: Jesus traveled throughout the region of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. – Matthew 4: 23. Great He heals every kind of disease and illness. Why not Joanne?
Then I read the devotional and a scripture within reads: "That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing? "So don't worry about these things, saying, `What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." (Matt 6:25 & 33-11)
Then this scripture comes to mind: "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34 "
Truth is I can not give an answer for everything nor should I expect one. I feel uncomfortable telling people I have a answer to their questions and pretending will rob me of my faith. Before I can tell someone else I need to look in the mirror when I have tough questions of faith and wonder how things are going to turn out when there is no definitive answer, look myself straight in the eyes and say out loud, "I do not know, but God knows and that is my final answer."
