12/29/15 Apex of day one. (Matthew 6:31-34)

Oh, how we saw the Lord’s hand on us today to help us during our travel day to Honduras [Is.41:10].  He guided us around a long line of people through the help of an airline worker and fast tracked us through security.  We would have otherwise missed our flight.  Operating on only 2 hours sleep I felt surprisingly refreshed, no doubt because of the return to the mission field and the strength that the Lord is giving.  We had some great fellowship in the airport at San Pedro Sula with another missionary family to whom we are so grateful for their love and newly made friendship.  Now we are settling in for much needed time of rest for the weary.

In thinking of this day, and what it means, it represents an apex of time in our lives as we transition to full time ministry.  The verses in Matthew 6:31-34 were coming to mind to encourage me in the Holy Spirit about these basic steps.  They say, “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”  I am taking no thought, but I am taking note with the Lord’s help.
