FRANK HAS A JOB


Frank has officially started his new job! Thanks for all the prayers, keep praying, because this job is comission only! We asked God to provide, and said we trusted Him.....and He's not letting us off the hook! Our verse of encouragement is:


"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 important than food, and the body more important 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? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, `What will we eat?' or `What will we drink?' or `What will we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:25-34)

It's hard to really grab onto this in the society we live in that is so concerned with grabbing more clothes, more things, bigger houses and more money. We know this is what God's trying to teach us, but it is so built into our flesh, that it takes every ounce of His strength to live like this.
