Bee Anxious For Nothing

As a Father, just looking at this photo makes me want to crawl through the screen and annihilate whatever is causing the look of uncertainty on SophieB's face. Even though I know it was a bee that caused that look. Even though I knew she was safe. Even though... That desire to care for and protect still rages hot, even now, because she felt anxious. And I was her Father. I'd bet you felt that too, when you saw this.

I posted this photo because it is a reminder of "How Much More!!!!" How Much More are you loved when you worry? How Much More are you cared for when life is crashing against the protections of your heart? How Much More is the Father's love for you when He looks at you and sees your face, and you don't know what to do, what to say, where to go, or feel help is on the way?

He loves you so much. No matter the storm blowing around you, or what life feels like right now, I ask you to think about this...

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers in their beauty—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? Relax, do not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.

People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Matthew 6


You are loved, wildly, right now, no matter where you find yourself. So Much More!  #loveworks
