Considering…


“O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the works Thy hand hath made…”

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 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 of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, 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 of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” {Matthew 6}

Consider the black-eyed susans, the queen anne’s lace, the marigolds, and the zinnias…

Consider the peppers and the beans and the berries and the melons…

Consider the oregano and lavender and mint and basil and thyme…

Oh me of little faith…consider…

Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. {John 12:24}

“Let us lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross…Consider Him who endured…so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted…For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it…”{Hebrews 12}

“Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, How great Thou art!

Counting His goodness, His greatness yet again…
