~ "Those blessings..."

"The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing."  (Ps 34:10)

As long as we walk in his ways, we will have everything we need.  It's a blessing God has given to us. He will keep us fed, he will keep us safe...we are loved!

So many times, when our existence seems to be on shaky ground, when our way of life is threatened, we begin to think "what am I going to do now?"  If your faith is firmly planted, there is nothing more you need to do but trust in the Lord.  Yes, you have to do the "footwork" that is necessary - if you've lost your job, you must look for another one - they don't just generally come looking for you.  The promise comes in KNOWING that anything that touches you, comes through God first.  There is always a blessing headed your way.  Even if you make the wrong choice (that one you don't pray about, the one you make out of fear) - our heavenly Father will take that and use it to bless you.  He doesn't cut you off because you've made a mistake.

Continue to pray, to seek his will for you, to live a life that pleases him.  Know that he is always on your team - he has your best interest in mind!  You are always a work in progress, HIS work!  He will mold you into the person he needs you to be, for him!
