Here we are again with all our worries and anxieties.
If we worry the whole day, can it add anything to
the length and quality of our lives? We are all worried
about the humdrums of life from dawn till sunset till
midnight. As a normal human being, worry just
sometimes wear us down. But could we reflect about
trusting in Divine Providence?
"Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap or
gather in the barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them."
See how they fly in the air; I have never seen creatures
that swoop and glide with utmost grace and beauty than
those birds. They chirp as if there's always the next morning
after the lovely dawn arise.
"Think of the flowers growing in the fields; they have never to
work or spin; yet I assure you that not even Solomon in all his
royal robes was clothed like one of this." The beauty of the flowers
have fascinated the world (tulips, roses, lilies, chrysnathemums)
through the ages.
Jesus assured us in Matt: 16: 28-29 how even the wild flowers growing in the
fields were taken cared of. How much more with man who
was given mastery over all other creatures?
Do not worry, seek the Kingdom of God first and everything
will be added unto you. We just have to experience the truth,
not to wobble about it since it is seen with the eyes of faith
and with an unwavering heart. How could we relate these things with
our everyday life?
In the midst of crises, difficulties and disasters, we will see
unity and love everywhere. The fruits of the Kingdom
is among us. From the nations who respond promptly to aid
one another to the simple person who carries a bloodied friend,
to the person who feed the hungry in stricken areas and to
the groups who clothe those who are in great need.
Trust in God! He will never forsake or abandon you; His
promises never fail. Life may not be a bed of roses, but
God promised that after the rain, the sun will shine again...
