Consider How the Lilies Grow…
Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin...If that is how God
clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into
the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! For the pagan
world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But
seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
When I was younger, I was more inclined to worry, but I also prayed. When I look
back at my life, I see God’s perfect timing in answering my prayers. In my
writings, I often tell of my own experiences in the hope that someone will
relate to them and know that in their difficult situations, God is working on
their behalf. Also, some stories tell of God's wonderful sense of humor which
helps us to laugh at ourselves. Most of all, I want to touch people's hearts
with God's tremendous love. It's like holding someone's hand and saying, "God
loves you; He is with you; everything will be alright!"
