In September, God gave me a heart’s desire – my daughter and her family moved to Nashville. I cannot tell you how happy this has made my heart.
As with any transition there are a lot of new things – new housing, new friends, new church, new EXPENSES and growth. Our precious miracle granddaughter began to grow out of the clothes she had (babies do that) – all the shower gifts (clothing up to 12 months) were coming to an end. My daughter Krista was thinking now what? Then she remembered Matthew 6:28-29, “28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.” God has taken care and clothed Chase and me, surely He will take care of Emma too.
The NEXT DAY, we went to visit a house to possibly purchase. The house was out of our price range, but during the tour of the house the wife just “happened to mention” that she was getting ready to sell her daughter’s smaller clothes (12 months – 3 years). We just “happened to ask” – how much do you want for them. Hmmm, $50.00. SOLD! Fifteen minutes later we left with boxes of clothes including some really cute shoes. Sometimes the main thing is not the main thing – that visit really wasn’t about the house.
30 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! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Is there anything worrying you today? If God cares about clothing Emma He is big enough to care for your concerns. (By the way, the clothes in this picture are about 1/4 of the clothes we purchased.)
