God is in Control
of My Adoption.
Fear not I am with you… Isaiah 41:10
For this reason I say to you, do not be
worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you
will drink; nor
for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than
food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the
air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and
yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more
than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour
to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe
how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they
spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory
clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the
grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown
into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little
faith! Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What
will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing? For the Gentiles
eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows
that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and
His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
The Lord is
my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am
helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with
my song will I praise him.
If God Almighty, up above,
Creator of All, Creator of Love,
Can fill our hearts with total content;
Then we understand what's meant.
A precious new baby makes our heart swell,
And God surely knows; He did His job well!
