Consider the Lilies

"Consider the lilies ... Even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."  - Luke 12:27

             'Consider the Lilies' is such a peaceful song to me.  I can just feel it's calming melody run through me.  The lyrics of the song should really be 'considered' by those who worry about every little thing and want to feel in control.
             'Consider the lilies, they don’t toil nor spin' because they are too busy blooming to worry about drought and other life threatening events.  'Consider the sparrows, they don’t plant nor sow, But they’re fed by the Master who watches them grow.'  We may joke about the size of a bird brain but how come they trust in God's provisions better than we?
           'May I introduce you to this friend of mine,...... But He’s not too busy to care about you.'  If we could just remember that God keeps His eye on us all the time and always has our good in mind.  He's not forgetful, distracted, careless, or unconcerned with us at any point in the day.  Yes 'His eyes are full of mercy and His heart is full of love' for each one of us.  What more could we want?
          Yes the flowers will wither and fade away but so will you.  So bloom while you can and count on Him for His favor on your season to shine.  Consider the lilies and then you will know..... not to sweat the small stuff.
