The past two years have truly been the hardest years in our family's life. We lost our business in the bad economy, lost our health care, lost the ability to be able to pay our bills, have feared losing our home, & in the midst of all this, we lost one of the kids in my sons band in a tragic accident.
I tell you all of this to say one thing - We didn't lose our very best friend, Jesus, throughout these trials. He was always there just waiting for us to talk to Him about each & every trial that was brought our way. Sometimes we asked Him to carry us, because we just couldn't walk anymore.
Because of the past two trial filled years, I've learned the true meaning of happiness! Jesus tells me these things in the Bible:
“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?
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
