God's creation up close and personal

If you are feeling small, unimportant, and full of anxiety perhaps you need a reminder of how much God loves you.

Matthew 6:25-34
“This is why I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? 
Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Aren’t you worth more than they? 
Can any of you add a single cubit to his height by worrying? 
And why do you worry about clothes?   Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread. 
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these!  If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you—you of little faith? 
So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 
For the idolaters eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. 
Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

The birds of the sky...

One place you can watch part of God's creation is the Decorah Bald Eagles .   It is fascinating to have an up close and personal view of something that was not seen before these modern times.  Let your self contemplate how God created living things to tend to their offspring etc. and then how much more He loves we who were made in His image.

If He cares so much for little tiny baby birds and great big grown up much more does He care about you?

Matthew 10:29
Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. 
But even the hairs of your head have all been counted. 
So don’t be afraid therefore; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Contemplate on how He actually loves you and glorify His name.  He is worthy to be praised!
