Matthew 6:25-34 TNIVMatthew

Do Not Worry

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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look 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[a]?

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.

Powerful Lord, thank you for your word that teaches us anew each time we read it. Keep us aware of your presence so that we may hear your will for us each day and be free to act on your guidance. Let us keep close to you and our brothers and sisters supporting them as you support us. Give us the power to change ourselves when we cannot hear you or feel your presence. Bless all we come in contact this day and everyday and let them be a blessing to us. without your influx and our regeneration we would be as stones on a path with no movement. Thank you, Lord, for our daily comfort, blessing and insight. AMEN

This week I have been thinking about the ST Francis Prayer. How much our world needs us to contemplate it, imbibe it, and practice it. As we start our journeys on our Summer Vacation bring it’s essence with you. for all that are traveling may your journey be filled with all good things, may you meet wonderful people on your journey and may you arrive and return home safely full of Love and Peace.

Blessings, Rev. Judith

I have been thinking about Father Mychal Judge, who was killed while doing his job that he loved at the World Trade Center. He was chaplain to the firefighters that were called there that day.  Fr Mychal was beloved by all who met him from the homeless on the streets of New York to the President of the United States. He was a Franciscan Friar who served all with his huge heart and winning smile. Here is the prayer he gave for the famlies of flight 800 that went down with all aboard a few years before 9/11.  It seems fitting still, as we as individuals and as a Nation remember and morn.

“God is present loving, smiling having received our loved ones. They are in his presence, illumened by His Smile and warmed by His Love. His Kingdom is enriched this day, so enriched, by so many beautiful souls, so much beauty. Our world is so empty without them, our hearts are broken, our sadness emence, our tears so abundant, our sorrow we live together. We need you, please come and touch us. Fill us with courage, calm our discomfort. Give us signs of your presence, we ask you, we beg you come.”
AMEN
