Yet, He will not snuff out smoldering wicks. Neither can floods quench His amazing love. He has poured out His Living Water generously to satisfy my quest.
The Lord wisely advises. “Be not anxious about life. Let tomorrow worry about tomorrow. ” What I eat, drink and wear is secondary to seeking Him and His Kingdom. (Matthew 6:25-34)
Marcia, a missionary from a developing country, inspires me. She trusts God to provide for children and staff with water, food, and school supplies.

Yes, no trials can hold me sway since You are beside me all the way. There is no need to worry over the sky, the trees and the news. I want to be a tree planted by the rivers of Your goodness and rooted in Your sure promises. Surely, I fear no wilting heat or droughts of life. (Psalm 1:3)
