Talk about perspective...

Matthew 6:30-33 - Message Bible

"If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers- most of which are never even seen-don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met."

Yep I sure did need to hear this!!!

NIV version:

"But seek first HIS kingdom and HIS righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."

If that doesn't put things into perspective...well I dont know what does...how about the Word of God...and how it is just what we need whenever we need something...when you struggle find a bible...ask God to give you a verse to stand on...and HE WILL...then everytime you think about what you are struggling with repeat the verse...then everytime you think of the verse repeat it again...meditate on it...it will help you stand where you need to stand in the midst of your struggles.
