Do not be ANXIOUS!

Isn't it sweet when the bible verses you read for the day are directly related to what you are going thru?
I am getting a little nervous about our upcoming trip to FL - the long car ride, 3 kids on a boat, the money we will have to spend.... And then this morning I picked up my "Read the Bible in a Year" bible and the section for today was Matthew 6 - DO NOT WORRY!!
I am so glad to know that my heavenly Father knows everything I need and promises to supply all that I need - as I seek FIRST HIS KINGDOM. Sometimes I wonder what that is supposed to look like on a day to day basis. I think for me it means being faithful in all that I know He has called me to, today. He wants me to point my children towards doing right and justly to those around them. He wants me to love my husband unconditionally and seek to serve him. He wants me to be patient, kind, sincere, joyful in my circumstances, and persistent in prayer. Each day is so similar ("groundhog day"), yet each day has it's own troubles. There are enough things to think about TODAY than spend time worrying about our upcoming trip - Pray for me!
