Just Leave It To God

by Bryant Evans on October 14, 2011

I’m sitting in the middle of nowhere right now. I’m in the woods and a long way from the busy world. I’m sitting under an old water oak and just noticing God.
A few minutes ago a single orange butterfly came by. Soon it was joined by two more. Now the three are happily frolicking around a bush about 50 feet away.
Before that a squirrel popped his out just above me. He quickly scurried off but then three more came out just across the small glade from where I sit. Like the butterflies they are playing without concern. So too are the birds, insects, turtles and other unseen critters.
Their apparent lack of anxiety reminded me of something Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount: “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not if more value than they?
Ok, Lord, enough said.

This is one of my favorite passages from Jesus. Having suffered from anxiety attacks and questioning my self-worth, I have been uplifted by these words. How unworthy we are to receive God’s love, but He sent His Son to die for our sins so we can have everlasting life!
I just stumbled onto your blog, and I will be a regular reader from now on. Thank you.
