And Why Do You Worry?…

lilies of the fieldI recently left behind the part-time contract work that had provided a base of support for Rog and me since we arrived in Sedona a year-and-a-half ago. My intention was to complete this phase of my life by the spring equinox so that I could return to our business full-time. But I would not go until I received a sign.

In the past, such a sign would have been a big one. This time, as I opened to faith, many small signs convinced me to trust my Higher Power to provide replacement income. Recently I shared with Rog the comfort I receive from reading this passage from Matthew:

“Therefore 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 than food, and the body more than clothes? Look 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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “

And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith?” (Matthew 6:25-30, NIV)

Nature gets it right. There’s no worry about tomorrow in Nature. Only full expression in the moment. With Nature continuing to blossom, and Easter soon upon us, more than ever I feel rebirth, renewal, and freedom in my soul.
