I've been spending a lot more time quietly reading my bible, praying and really studying the Word recently. It's been good for me, especially since it's kind of difficult to go to church when I'm home for summer (atheist dad, you know). Anyways, I stumbled across these verses in Matthew (the book I've been reading mainly recently) and was happy I read them, so I thought I'd share.

Matthew 6:25-34
25Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?...34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own.

The verses I skipped (28-33) are really good but incredibly too long to quote in this short little blog post. Here, however, it a link to the full section I pulled.

(The photo is of a lizard I saw -- I know it's hard to tell he's there, but that's why I like it to go with this verse -- he doesn't store food away nor does he wear clothing, but he is well protected by the skin God gave him and has plenty of food to eat.)


  1. I love love loveeee this verse. Awesome connection the the lizard, you're absolutely right! God takes care of that little guy's every need, so of course he's going to take care of ours...so encouraging! I really like your blog :), just found it through Tova's Totally Awkwardness :)

  2. Matthew is one of my favorite chapters because of its directness, its use of metaphors and similes, and how its content can be so reassuring and revitalizing. It's a place I often find myself in times of spiritual need. :)


Commenting? How lovely. Please try not to talk about dead cats.
