Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 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. ~Matthew 6:26-34
Today was my first day of orientation as one of the new doctors and it was a bit overwhelming. With all my feelings and thoughts swirling around I realized one thing: Jesus is my rock. Everything could fade away, but I have a feeling God gave me a great group to work with the next three years. Praise Him for His goodness. I am going to hold on to hope instead of fear of the possible problems. Jesus is good. His mercy endures forever.
For any of you also going through a “first day” of sorts in your life where the unknown is just all you can see, remind yourself to lock out the negative thoughts- submit them to Jesus- and allow God to fill your heart with hope of good things for your future :) Let Him be your rock and your strength.
Seeking His Kingdom first,
