FLOWERS OF THE FIELD

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”/Ps 8:4-5

”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?”/Matt 6:28-30

But nothing is impossible for God.”/Luke 1:37

Impossi…NO! It’s possible

”I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”/Psalms 121

”Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, to make his mighty power known. He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert.”/Ps 106:9

”When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”/Ps 8:4-5

But nothing is impossible for God.”/Luke 1:37

THE POWER OF GRACE

”But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
/2 Korinth 12:9

When I fall,
I fall into your everlasting arms
You uphold me

I don’t have to have it all toghether
You hold me toghether


I don’t have to be strong
You are strong

I can shake off those heavy burdens
No need of them on my shoulders

Lighter, I can see clearly;

You carry me
So I can be carefree, in the care of God.

You remind me:
”Do not be afraid, I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.

My thoughts and plans for you are only good, I have a future and a hope for you.”

I trust you. You are my saviour, healer, shepherd and friend.

WHERE MY STRENGHT COMES FROM


”He gives power to the faint,
and strengthens the powerless.

Even youths will faint and be weary,
and the young will fall exhausted;

but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”
/Isaiah 40:27-30

Many of us thinks that strenght comes from being buzy and doing stuff. But sloooowly I’m starting to realize that it is the opposite. It’s only in the stillness, before God, when I lay my burdens and all my striving down, I find my strenght, true peace, rest, lightness, hope, joy, love and life.

💖

”Come to me all you who are weary,
and I will give you rest.”
/Matthew 11:29
