For some time I have pondered on life.. I have always wanted just a simple life.. a life where I grow my own food and work the land with no worries... I know, sounds too good to be true right?? No its not! I've never really needed much through my life and I find that we as humans really don't need much. God says that he will provide and Jesus re-enforces that again in Matthew 6:25-34... Jesus is not going to lie to us.. perhaps the Amish have it kinda right, in that if we were to be back that way perhaps we or at least I would take more time to worship God as I should. I know the first year out in 2010 for me as we lived in the land it was simpler and I felt that freedom, I relied more on God in a since and wish I could have stayed out there like that... it had to come to an end though or did it..
25 “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?
26 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?
27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
30 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?
31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
