Luke 12:26-27 "If then you're not able to do even a little thing, why worry about the rest? "Consider how the wildflowers grow: they don't labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! If that's how God clothes the grass, which is in the field today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will He do for you-you of little faith?"
A friend of mine recently said that 2018 will go down in Bratcher history as a crazy year, and that's a definite for sure. Crazy might even be an understatement. This year has definitely stretched our faith in more ways than one. I'm not really a worry wart, but I am a control freak, so with trials that are going on that are completely out of my control, it does leave me a bit unsettled. At the same time, I know God's got this and I trust that. Completely. So while I try to plan for every possible outcome, at the end of the day, I have to surrender everything to God.
I know we aren't the only one wrestling with trials and uncertainty. I'm sure many of you are too. We are all so much more alike than we think. The verse above gives me comfort and I hope it does for you too. My hope is found in Christ alone, and while life will always have tumultuous seasons, each crazy I go through, increases my faith and I see God at work. Jesus died to set me free from trusting myself, and I can trust God is writing a better story than I ever could.
