great things.

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy. Psalm 126:3

Monday night we were at a small group Bible study and we were talking about how God is a promise-keeping God. He never fails, He never leaves us. I just got to thinking about all the ways he has blessed Jacob and I. All the ways he has shown Himself to us over and over  during the last 4 years of our marriage. I could literally write a novel of all the ways he has provided, answered prayer, and just plain loved on us. I don’t know why I ever doubt whether or not He truly cares or is really involved in our every day lives. I have a husband who loves me. I mean really loves me. I have a home and a roof over my head. I have family who loves the mess outta me. I was fortunate enough to get an education and have  my dream job. And I have a God who loves  me so much that He gives me so much more than I need. I am so blessed. 
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. - Luke 12:22-31
