"consider the lilies of the field."
I feel like a scorched lily at the moment. Though my heart knows that God is watching over me and mine, my mind is like a whirlwind in a field of lilies. My heart knows that:
"The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me."
That "the Lord is my refuge and strength."
That "nothing can separate me from the love of God."
That if I "trust the Lord with all my heart, and lean not unto my own understanding, but in all my ways acknowledge Him, that He will direct my path."
That "if I keep my mind stayed on Jesus, He will keep me in perfect peace."
That "the Lord is working out all things for those who love Him."
I know all this.
My heart trusts this.
May this moment, this hour be one in which my brother is reassured of these same things. May he have the peace and calm and power in him to meet the challenges of his day. Though I do not know where he is or how he is, God knows. And while I cannot trust people, I can trust God. Into His hands I lay my burden of worry and "am persuaded that He will keep that which I've committed to Him against this day." selahV
