Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your Kingdom.

I started a new bible study at my church. I am doing Crown Financial at Briarwood. This study teaches you to be a better steward of your finances and teaches you how to spend according to the bible. We are on week 2. Each week we have to memorize scripture. If you know me I do not like to speak in front of a group so this is very hard for me because you have to say the verse in front of the class. I mean they are all staring at you! Talk about freezing up! I got through last weeks just fine. This week is 1 Chronicles 29: 11,12 "Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, this is your kingdom. We adore you as being in control of everything. Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the Ruler of all mankind; your hand controls power and might, and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength. Wow! Please pray I will be able to say all that on Wednesday.

We have been slow at work lately as I am sure so is everyone else. I sent an email asking the girls in my bible study just to pray about the situation. Last night I went home to work on my homework for Crown. One of the verses I had to read was Matthew 6:31-33 "So don't worry about these things, saying, "What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear? These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need."

He knows what we all need and we will supply us with our every need. So when I read that last night it reassured me God has his hand in everything and no matter what happens with work, he will provide! So this morning I got an email from Nicole saying she was reading her bible last night and came across this verse and wanted to share it with me. Guess what verse it was…yes Matthew 6:31-33. Ummm hello! He is amazing and has his hand in every situation! Thanks Nicole for the email.

Just thought I would share that with you!

I just stumbled onto your website, well, God wanted me to stop by, I should say, for there's no such thing as a coinsidence, only God-incidents! God cares about our big things like work, and puts His hands even over the small little things we care about. HE is absolutely in control of everything! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when HE reminds us of this :) You getting that verse from 2 different places is not a coinsidence but a GOD-INCIDENT!
God bless :)
