Matthew 6:31-34


As I am sure everyone knows by now, I often share things that I find on Pinterest. This is one of those posts. 

Towards the end of September one of the suggested pins that came up was for a month long journal project that involved scripture for the month of October. Since I have always been trying to read the Bible more, I figured this was a good place to start. So I printed out the page, which can be found here. The theme for October is the Promises of God.

I have been doing it every day and I am enjoying it. I do it every night before I go to bed and it is a great way to relax and unwind from electronics and the rest of the day. The verses from Monday's journal are from the gospel of Matthew chapter 6 verses 31-34.

31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day. (Revised Standard Version)

These verses reminded me that we don't need to constantly worry about what we are going to eat for the next meal or what we are going to wear. Because God has it all under control and that he will provide for us. And like it says in the last verse, "tomorrow will be anxious for itself." So we don't need to worry about what will happen in the future, because God will provide for us.
