Matthew 6:30-34
"If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

It's so easy to get caught up with what is going to happen tomorrow.
I was seeking direction on where to live, what job to take, and a couple of other things. Thoughts on my next steps were occupying most of my thought life. While I was in Colorado in my hotel room, my thoughts went to, "Where should I be living Lord?" The Lord then asked me, "Allyson, what is it that you want to be doing, what is it that I placed on your heart?"

He knows exactly what I want to be doing, so do my close friends and family. I want to travel and preach the gospel! Specifically teaching women their identity in Christ. As I told the Lord this, I realized that's exactly what I was doing! I was literally living out what the Lord placed on my heart. I was so preoccupied though, with thoughts of the future, that I almost forgot to live in the moment!

God is faithful to you TODAY, in THIS MOMENT. Tomorrow will take care of itself, there is grace for tomorrow! You don't have to worry, the Lord is ordering your steps! Look at all He has done for you. Look how faithful He has been! He is not going to leave you now. He will continue to be faithful!

He is our good Father. He has given you the desires of your heart and He WILL fulfill those desires! He who has promised is faithful.
