Jesus said, "Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?"

If we could (fully) believe the words that Jesus spoke, in Luke 12:27-28, we would find far fewer ways to create unnecessary anxieties, stress, and worry in our lives, and we wouldn't be bogged down with our petty fears, uncertainties, and doubts. 

The answer is ridiculously simple: believe that God loves you more than a blade of grass, or a wildflower!!! They don't sit around worrying what their next meal, where the next rain drop is coming from, or if some animal is going to step on their head (smile). They just grow, they just bloom, they just enjoy the day He has made, and bask in His glory!

Now, let's apply that truth to YOUR LIFE: God loves YOU way more than any of them! After all, He created us in His very image, and formed mankind from the dust because He wanted to have fellowship/ relationship with someone who understood His heart, His mind, His needs - did I say, WOW!?! Then tell me, why in the world are YOU wasting YOUR time worrying, doubting, fearing, and allowing anxiety to sweep away the joy, peace and gladness from YOUR life?

Isn't it time YOU trusted God - more than YOU do - and placed YOUR full confidence in Him, cast YOUR cares upon Him, and invested YOUR faith completely into Him? 

Remember how much He LOVES YOU - deeply CARES ABOUT YOUR NEEDS - and that He has promised to be with YOU always, never to leave YOU, never to forsake YOU, to provide for all YOUR needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus, to heal YOUR diseases, to be YOUR peace, YOUR strength, YOUR joy, and YOUR salvation!!! What MORE needs to be said? (smile again)

Isn't it time YOU surrender everything that's robbing YOUR days of their joy, stealing YOUR peace, and that's intruding on YOUR life - keeping every day from being the best they can be in Him? Isn't it time YOU started REALLY living YOUR life to it's fullest - just the way YOUR assuring, loving, and tuned-in God wants them to be? 

'Nough said … enjoy YOUR day in Him - because YOU'RE ALREADY BLESSED!!!
