Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life]?
…for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name.
Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.
Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it breaks to a new thing; now it breaks forth; do you not perceive it?
For grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing, it is a gift of God.
Word and Image
offers two parts of my morning ritual, scripture and visual art. I make no
attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
