Do Not Worry

birds-on-ground

Matthew 6:25-26

25 “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? 26 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? 

Easy right? Not so much. I suspect if it were easy, it wouldn’t have been included in the Sermon on the Mount.

Can I learn to live the moment in front of me and not think about the next …

hour
day
week
month
year

I can’t even let the next moment happen without

planning
and planning again
worrying
and worrying more
thinking
and rethinking

But as I examine the photo above, the birds are not looking around worried about danger, they’re not fighting to forage for food. It doesn’t appear as though they are feeding and also poised for flight eager for the next moment.

I know if I were to move toward them to get a closer look, they would quickly fly away. But not until that moment.

They are living in the now. With freedom. Freedom that God wants me to experience.

Enjoy the moment. It slips by.   Just   Like   That.

On the Journey, Jackie
