Before D left for his mission trip on Sunday, he played Matt Hammitt’s All of Me while we were in the car heading to church. I’ve been listening to it over and over again, because I loved the song. Just a few minutes ago, I put on a Youtube playlist someone had made with his songs, and Trust came on.
The words filled my speakers just as I was requesting another deferment on my student loan.
Trusting Jesus is just what I am doing, and I believe He sends little reminders to us at exactly the right moments. That’s exactly what He did as I was once again fretting over something so worldly and petty as a massive student loan payment. He never fails to send me signs of His love and His presence, and I am so grateful for those little things.
And it’s also a reminder of one of my favorite passages:
Do Not Worry
“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? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or stow away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to life?
“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? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’. For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
