This package was one of two mailed to my daughter in Scotland – 16 months ago. They contained important materials for her ministry with NeiuCommunities – books, curriculum, Alias DVD’s. Somehow they got lost and never made it to her flat in Glasgow. One of them was finally returned after 6 months or so. We figured the second one was forever lost. What a surprise when it showed up on our doorstep this week. Apparently it found it’s way to Belfast, Northern Ireland where it took up residence in the dead mail office. Someone must have been tasked to clean things up because here it is.
Just a little reminder that God watches over the little things. He just takes a different view than us of how important they are ….
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:25-33, ESV)
